NS High School Peer Leaders
Every year, a select group of North Shore High School seniors apply and are chosen to become North Shore High School’s Peer Leaders under the direction of Dr. Caitlin Kirmser and Ms. Rachel McAree.
Peer leaders are mentors to the incoming freshmen class. They also serve as role models within the high school community with increased awareness around relevant peer issues. This year the Peer Leaders were able to provide an in-person orientation with small groups of 10 high school freshman prior to the start of the newschool year.
Ms. McAree said, “There are 64 seniors participating in the program this 2020-21 school year; they are working hard to support the ninth graders' transition from middle school into high school, which has been more complicated this year than any other due to the pandemic.”
