What do you think about the new advisory change?

Did you do anything in advisory last year?

How do you find the 2019-2020 advisory changes?
“I like the new advisory changes because I get to spend time with a certain group of people who I’ve gotten to know a lot better, as well as the teacher. I didn’t like advisory last year because even though we were supposed to mix with people from different grades, I didn’t do that. I think also that since we weren’t in advisory as often, I didn’t really get to know the teacher. This year’s advisory is more of a routine because we see the same people every day, so we get to know them better. I would not go back to the old advisory.”
How do you feel about the 2019-2020 advisory changes?
“Well, I actually like the changes. I didn’t like system last year because it felt like advisory was not a break; it was just another class on a Wednesday. It felt like we had seven classes on Wednesday, and the day felt longer. Honestly, I would prefer not having any advisory whatsoever.”
