Student Advisories are used on an intermittent basis throughout the year as a means of providing school-wide instructional opportunities and distribution of materials such as interim reports and report cards. Advisories generally occur between 1st and 2nd period, with the exception of the first week of school, during which the students report to advisory classrooms by 7:30am.
South River offers an enriching and rigorous academic program where students will become self-directed individuals who are able to thrive in an ever-changing technological world. We provide a safe and stimulating learning environment with an emphasis on integrity, respect for diversity, pride in education, and engagement in school and community service in preparation for success in the 21st century. We believe that excellence is achievable and always worth the investment; that the most effective learning environment is one in which staff and students are actively engaged; that students must be equipped with life long learning tools to succeed in a changing society; that each person has unique talents and perspectives that contribute to the value of the school community; that all students can positively impact their community; and that students, family, school staff, the community, and our governments share the responsibility for advancing our school's mission.
