Health & Wellness
The Marlborough faculty and staff take very seriously their role in providing a safe and supportive environment in which students learn and lead each day. Those involved in nurturing a student’s academic goals, health, and well-being (parents, teachers, psychologists, and administrators) work as a team, together with the student, when questions or problems arise. Beyond that network of trusted adults, Marlborough also provides a number of resources to support students during difficult and challenging times.
At Marlborough, students are encouraged to build meaningful relationships with each other and with the adults in their lives. To this end, students are placed into advising groups and with advisors for the entirety of their time in each division (i.e. a student will be in the same advising group with the same advisor in grades 7-9 and then in 10-12). In addition to relationship building, the Advisory curriculum strives to foster the student’s awareness of her own social, emotional, and cognitive development. This program also stresses the importance of and provides assistance with the development of healthy and effective life skills such as anti-harassment skills, self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, healthy relationship skills, and overall thoughtful decision-making in the real and virtual worlds.
