Stars On Point
A multi-tiered system of support for students and staff
As part of North High’s commitment to student success, NHS reinforces the pillars of success, trust, ambition, respect, and spirit for all students and staff.
Students are taught these pillars in a series of lessons throughout the year; are rewarded for demonstrating these pillars on campus; are offered opportunities for reflection when pillars are not upheld; and are given opportunities for intervention when necessary. This system encourages positive behavior both on campus and beyond and creates a culture of positivity at North High.
At the most basic level, Stars On Point aims to teach students expected behaviors on and off campus and acknowledge when positive behavior is demonstrated. Students have the opportunity to earn “Star Bucks” in class and around campus which are entered for raffle prizes each week. In addition, teachers acknowledge a small handful of exemplary students quarterly who model the STARS pillars on campus.
Tier 2: (Intervention)
For students needing more support, intervention services are offered that include small group sessions to help students thrive at North High. These group sessions tackle issues including:
Anxiety, depression, grief
Anger, and more
For students whose needs cannot be met by the group interventions offered at Tier 2 alone, one-on-one counseling and referrals to outside services are available with our school social worker. These “Tier 3” services will only be required by a small handful of students, but it is part of North High’s commitment to ensure ALL students can be successful and thriving.
✩✩ Please reach out to your student’s counselor if you are interested in referring your student for Tier 2 or 3 services.
