An advisor-advisee program ls one of many fundamental concepts operating in an effective middle school. To develop a successful advisor-advisee program, schools must seriously train teachers for their role as an advisor. The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a relationship between staff and students' attitudes towards an advisor-advisee program. This study included twenty-six staff members and three hundred and twenty students. Staff and students were surveyed through the use of separate survey instruments. The surveys were used to communicate their level of satisfaction toward the advisor-advisee program. Attitudes of staff as well as students were then identified and classified as either positive or negative through the survey instruments. Students were categorized by the advisor they were assigned. The results of the study showed that there was a relationship in attitudes of staff and students towards the advisor-advisee program.
