If your child’s needs aren’t being met in school--academically, socially, or emotionally--your first action can be to work with the school to adjust your learner’s experience. Unfortunately, some schools may not offer the wide range of classes, extracurriculars, or peer groups needed to help your child grow.
If that’s the case, the school may not be a good fit. By transferring schools mid-year and trying a new learning environment, you’re offering your student a chance to develop and reach goals you may not have thought were previously possible.
Changing their learning environment could go a long way toward providing the type of motivation and fresh start needed to get back to enjoying and looking forward to learning. A change of setting can bring a new perspective that fosters the independence and focus needed to move on to college or career success.
