One of the essential components of the program at Mountain House High School is our Advisory program.  At the beginning of their high school experience, students are matched up in grade-level groups with a teacher who will be their Advisory teacher for all 4 years of their educational experience at MHHS.  Advisory meets once a week, Typically on Thursdays, for 30 minutes.  The purpose of this course is for students to make lasting connections with a trusted adult on campus, and create a small 'Ohana (family) like group. While school administration takes the responsibility of preparing lesson plans and topics, each teacher uses these materials to prepare their weekly lesson to fit the needs of their unique group of students.  As teachers and students get to know one another better over the 4 years they attend high school, this 'Ohana truly becomes a tight knit group of individuals who learn and grow together.  Advisory teachers work with students throughout their 4 year high school career during advisory on topics including, but not limited to:
  • Motivation
  • Leadership
  • Understanding your brain and learning processes
  • Digital Citizenship
  • The Importance of Sleep
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Social/Emotional Learning
  • Mental Health 
  • School Culture
During our Advisory period and throughout the year we use some programs to help us to meet our goals to build a positive school culture.  Below are some links to programs and information that we use in our Advisory curriculum:
