Parents, teachers, and students of Bannister Academy share their thoughts regarding a unique and important part of the school’s way of teaching—the mentoring. This is a unique part of the school’s way of teaching, but very effective and beneficial to the students and even the parents.
Each student has a mentor, a teacher who is tasked to guide these students and help them in various aspects of their lives, whether that be academic or personal. Mentoring encourages students to talk to their mentors about their daily lives, their personal problems, academic achievements and more. In turn, the teachers can offer guidance, a piece of advice or comfort to their students. Through mentoring, teachers have the chance to help students beyond the usual classroom setting.
