Transition From Middle School To High School
Beginning high school is a major change for young people. Academically, high school requires a higher level of class preparation, study skills, and time management.
Socially, the high school years are a time of important change in the maturity of peer and other relationships. During this time, adolescents are also developing a new sense of self, an identity separate from their parents. Some high school students will also enter the work world through part-time or summer employment. The transition to high school requires increased self-management skills in order to successfully negotiate the challenges of school, work, family life, and social relationships.
