High School Learning Center Events

HLC Listening

On Tuesday, October 23, the HLC welcomed parents to participate in our first Listening Series of the year. Parents met with students and staff over coffee and pastries and shared some of their hopes and dreams for their children's futures. The HLC will provide parents with several opportunities throughout the year to engage in dialogue about some of the things that HLC is doing well and areas in which we can improve. If you would like to contribute, please call the High School Learning Center at 978-975-5917 or stop by at 58 Lawrence Street. We would love to hear from you!

HLC Faculty and staff

With instuction from professors at the Suffolk University Center of Restorative Justice, HLC staff members studied and practiced concepts from Carolyn Boyes-Watson's book Circle Forward: Building a Restorative School Community

 

With these restorative practices in mind, the High School Learning Center is excited to augment its Advisory program throughout the 2018-19 school year.
