Transitioning to Middle School

Moving from 6th grade to middle school is an exciting time for students, but it can also be overwhelming and students are sometimes anxious about what to expect. As parents, we often wonder how we can best prepare our children to make the transition from elementary to middle school and how to support them during their first year in a new environment. On this page you will find information to help you get your child ready for this change.

In April middle schools hold an orientation for students to introduce them to their new school, walk them through what their day might look like, and explain all the great things middle school offers. We encourage you to read through the following information to learn more about how to navigate this transition.
