Middle School

Middle-school students must already be proficient in the foundational skills of reading, writing, and math in order to apply these skills to master grade-level curriculum within the domains of learning – English, History, Science, Math, Foreign Language, the Arts, etc.  If your child struggles, it may be because she never really mastered the basic skills and, as a result, is ill prepared for this level of learning.  Or, your child may not know how to manage her studies.  Your child may not have learned how to read a textbook, take notes, study for tests, manage time, keep materials organized, or stay motivated.  Your struggling middle school student will quickly fall behind if she has not yet developed the critical prerequisite foundational or study skills.  The sooner your middle schooler gets the help she needs, the sooner your child will be able to manage school work and the sooner your child will feel successful.
