Transition from Middle School to High School

By: Melissa Greener; LWLHS Math & Middle School Spanish Teacher

Finally, you are not a kid anymore; you have made it to high school. The next four years of your life, you will become independent, learn to drive, go to prom, and get one step closer to college. This is it. This is the transitional moment in your life you have been waiting for, and it is finally here. Congratulations!

Although all of those things are important when thinking about the next four years of your life, there is still the education that you have to look forward to. Clearly, it is not nearly as exciting as prom; however, the academics are what allow you to get to each of those milestones you are eagerly awaiting. The classes become more vigorous, the teachers expect more, and you are held to a higher responsibility. These are all very important parts of your education!

The transition from middle school to high school is easy in some respects, but in others, it is more difficult. Teachers expect you to take notes regularly, study frequently, participate willingly, and question continually. These are the expectations that begin to turn you into an adult, the keys to success, but more importantly, these are what advance your life in more ways than one.

At Living Word, we mold each student for success using these key transitional moments. However, we take it one step further by integrating Christ in every component of our lives. This is the ultimate success, our salvation in Christ, and the love that He has for us all as we grow daily.
