When preparing kids for middle school, parents should keep in mind the social, academic, and practical concerns of their student.
Transitioning from elementary school to middle school can be daunting for an adolescent. Adjustments that seem minor to an adult, such as learning to use a locker, may be a considerable challenge to a young person entering their teenage years.
Alsion Montessori suggests parents consider each child’s personality when preparing their kids for middle school.
An anxious student, for example, may need reassurance that middle school is an opportunity to make new friends and participate in exciting extracurricular activities.
The easygoing student, on the other hand, might need an explanation of the importance of keeping to a schedule and studying hard in anticipation of high school.
Middle school is less stressful and more enjoyable when young people know what to expect during the upcoming school year. Parents can ease incoming students’ concerns by planning in these critical areas:
Attending summertime orientation sessions and back-to-school nights with your child is essential. Orientations familiarize students with the campus and the adults with whom they will interact during the day.
