Link Crew     
Some schools have established link crews where juniors and seniors are trained to work with freshmen. The upperclassmen are assigned a specific number of freshmen, usually fewer than 5:1 and meet with them prior to the beginning of school and orient them to the school. During the school year they make sure the freshmen are attending school and try to get them involved in school activities.

Camp Everytown
Nine schools have sent at least one team of 60+ students to Camp Everytown where they participate in a four-day intensive camp that focuses on building tolerance and acceptance and eliminating all types of racism.

School Psychologists
The district employs school psychologists who work with school staff to assist students having academic and social problems.

Medical Clinics
Independence and Andrew Hill have medical clinics on campus staffed by medical professionals.
