Each incoming freshman is assigned a dean who remains with your child throughout his or her high school career.
Your dean will be your family’s advocate and direct contact to Poly, providing highly individualized guidance and support. They will manage course scheduling, meet with faculty, support co-curricular endeavors, recommend extracurricular opportunities, monitor progress and growth, and support your child and family in planning for college and beyond.
As your student travels through Upper School, expect to receive invitations for meetings at key junctures, as well as other communications about your child’s progress. Your dean will provide you with a comprehensive and informed perspective about your child’s life at Poly and is the person you should call whenever you have a question about any aspect of your child's school experience.
An advantage of this dean system is to make the college planning process a four-year endeavor. While each student will have a dedicated dean as their main counselor, the entire dean team will meet weekly to review, strategize, and support your child so that every student benefits from each dean’s collegiate expertise and their collective wisdom.
