Students in middle school are building knowledge and skills to serve them throughout their academic career and life. If they miss a crucial concept in this stage, even the brightest students can fall behind.

This method allows the school to monitor student progress toward grade-level proficiency and personalize the level of support to match each student’s individual needs.

Close Learning Gaps: Focus on Middle School

The middle school years lay a foundation for success in high school, college, and career. Students need to address learning gaps so that they can get and stay on track with grade-level content.

This lack of readiness, combined with the social-emotional changes students experience during this time, has a major impact on high school and post-secondary success.
