Jump Start 6

In sixth grade, the Jump Start program focuses on the transition from elementary school to middle school. There is an emphasis on familiarizing the student to a new school environment and class schedule. For many students, sixth grade is the first time they have been exposed to more than one teacher, let alone multiple classrooms where schedules change daily. Moreover, recognizing and managing teachers’ expectations are challenges a sixth grade student faces.  Jump Start is designed to help students address these challenges.
