Naviance is a service that students and families can use to help make decisions about courses, colleges and careers. Duxbury High School 's Guidance office uses this to help students plan for their post graduate plans. Counselors use various pieces of this program in advisory sessions with students and also use the email contact information within it as a way to communicate with students. Students are given usernames and passwords beginning in the spring of grade 9. Students who have lost or forgotten their passwords should contact their Guidance Counselor.
NoodleTools is an integrated platform for academic research that provides tools for note-taking, outlining, citation, and collaborative research. Duxbury students in grades 6 through 12 are required to use NoodleTools, to varying degrees, while working on their research papers each year. Typically students create a NoodleTools account in 6th grade and continue to use that same account throughout middle and high school. In order for your account to be in the Duxbury NoodleTools portal it is important that you create your account when you are in school, not at home. If you do not know your NoodleTools username or password, please drop by the circulation desk in the school library for help.
