How can I prepare my children to make the transition from grade school to middle school or from middle school to high school, or to a new school?

Preparing for any academic transition, whether it's elementary to middle or middle to high, is going to rely on a child’s current comfort level and increasing that comfort level. You will need to help your child to know that this is what the routine is going to look like and this is what it's going be like in middle school. Maybe going to the school and walking through it and typically schools already do this. You should also help them to understand what changes are going to happen. They are going to be more independent and so they are going to have to be able to use an agenda and support them with that by checking in on it. Are they writing in their agenda? Are they bringing home their homework? You have to be involved and know what the expectation is so that you can support them in meeting those expectations.
