Here are some helpful hints for parents to use to assure their child's transition to high

    • Encourage your student to explore extracurricular activities
    • Talk to your student about school and their peers 
    • Supervise and follow your student on social media
    • Lend an ear — never underestimate the power of a good listener
    • Use your home as a positive gathering place
    • Help your student express feelings or concerns into words
    • Suggest trusted mentors for additional adult support

    When families are involved in their student’s high school experience, the student is more likely to have a higher academic achievement, be better adjusted, and graduate.
