What is PULSE?

PULSE is an acronym that stands for:




Support and


Advisory family mission: To build relationships and soft skills, and to prepare students for life in a variety of ways through the creation of small groups where students find a source of accountability and support.

These families will meet weekly, on Fridays, during our already established club/IF/pathway course time in order to participate in activities based on topics such as team building, character education, growth mindset, bullying, self-esteem, and academic analysis. Family sizes will be around 16 students to 1 adult.

We are excited about the opportunity that PULSE time will give us to connect with students outside of an academic environment, and we look forward to your support as we continue to personalize your student’s learning.
