Gearing Up for Middle School

Entering middle school is a major transition in the life of a student and his or her parents. That's why Gearing Up for Middle School offers educational classes that prepare parents and their student for success in school.

Parents will focus on:
  • The physical, emotional, social and cognitive (brain/thinking) changes in their student.
  • The importance of a home and school partnership to ensure academic (school) success.
  • Their changing role as parents of an adolescent.
Students will focus on:
  • Choices, opportunities and responsibilities that await them in middle school.
  • The transition; people, places and expectations of middle school.
  • Their new role as a middle school student.
