The goal of Advocacy is to help all students to understand the importance of what they are doing now and its impact on the future. To help personalize the school environment by connecting students to a “small learning community”, students are assigned to an Advocacy class with a teacher that will remain with them from the freshman/sophomore year through the senior year. The class meets weekly for 30 minutes in order to achieve the following objectives:

  • Support students with their academic endeavors, including Senior Portfolio preparation.
  • Allow students to explore post-secondary college and career options.
  • Provide support and guidance to students as they make critical life decisions.
  • Help students to respect and appreciate diversity and to actively contribute to the PGHS community and the community at large.

The Advocacy teacher will monitor students’ progress towards completion of graduation requirements and will provide guidance in academic planning. The teacher will act as a general advocate for students and will help to facilitate communication with parents/guardians
