Every Darrow student has a faculty advisor who supports the student in navigating academic and personal challenges and understands the student’s total experience. The advisor also corresponds with parents to update them about how their son or daughter is doing. Faculty advisors provide a critical connection between parents and the school community. A Darrow advisor is a mentor, counselor, and advocate all rolled into one.
