Middle school students can often find adjusting to high school expectations an overwhelming experience to say the least. Study skills, organization and time management become very important skills when adding sports, music, and other clubs to their already busy schedules. Beginning with the Brigance Academic Placement CIBS2® Assessment to uncover any areas for focus, GradePower Learning will know right where students need to refresh.

Students who do not need refresher material will be assigned enrichment materials. *There will also be transition activities offered in the school building.
