Mentoring Program at Buck Mountain Central School

This semester the Math Peer Mentoring Program has started at Buck Mountain Central. Grade 10 and 11 students are participating in this extra-credit program designed to increase numeracy skills at the school. These high school students are mentoring grade 8 math students during the flex block that has been implemented as a part of the high school redesign project. Not only have these students been in the classroom, helping with homework and working on mental math skills, they have also gained training about what it means to be a good mentor and role model within the school. 

This is an excellent opportunity for all students involved.  It reinforces Buck Mountain Central School's goal of striving for excellence and builds positive peer relationships between students in different grades.
