If you’ve got a tween on your hands, you know that middle school is no cake walk: Multiple teachers, personal schedule responsibility, and long-term assignments all require more independent thought and focus. In ninth grade, that reality gets kicked up a notch.
Instructors, assignments, and expectations in high school change from difficult-yet-guided to less forgiving, less hands on, and more pressure-packed (especially with transcripts and college applications to think about). On top of that, your teen’s schedule begins to overflow with friends, sports, and jobs, not to mention all of the additional time he or she will need for studying. The transition to high school can be a real shocker for unprepared students and families, but it doesn’t have to be.
