Freshman Mentor

 FRESHMEN MENTOR PROGRAM

WHAT IS THE FRESHMAN MENTOR PROGRAM?

The Freshman Mentor Program is a comprehensive transition program that provides each Freshman with a support group that consists of FMP Student Mentors, a faculty advisor, and a school counselor.  Student Mentors are “trusted guides” to Freshmen. They provide an ongoing orientation process that enables Freshmen to become familiar Wit with policies, procedures, programs and traditions at Waukesha South High School.
