Getting Ready for High School

For eighth graders, third and fourth quarters are extremely important. This is the last chance for them to prepare for high school. Oftentimes, middle schoolers struggle with organization and/or motivation, and transitioning to high school can be quite difficult. If you are concerned about your son or daughter's transition to high school, we would be happy to help! Our goal over the next two quarters is to help our students be at their best in time for 9th grade.

Have a great week!

As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
