Supporting a Successful Middle School Transition

Transitioning from Lower School to Middle School is an important milestone in your child’s life and educational journey. Middle School represents a time of tremendous growth and change - physically, emotionally, and cognitively.  A successful Middle School transition can usher in a positive Upper School experience stretching all the way through the end of high school. This period represents a developmental milestone that requires special recognition, support, and consideration from parents and teachers.  Our teachers incorporate social development, academic challenge, as well as and targeted, individualized support to ensure that students get what they need, when they need it.

This Parent Guide will help families parents and teachers at The Hebrew Academy work together to help prepare 5th Grade students successfully transition from Lower School to Middle School.
