Easing the Transition from Middle to Upper School

For some, the second semester of school is viewed as the downhill roll toward the end of the year. Not for us at Mount Vernon! We excitedly begin anew with a full half-year of learning and engagement. This extends as well to ramping up for the following year. We recognize that moving to a new level in the school can elicit questions. How will moving to a new division change my child’s experience? My experience as a parent?

We recently held a Parent University session for grade 8 parents to garner a glimpse into the Upper School and the amazing journey that awaits their child. The following presentation offers some highlights.

In addition to this session, parents may attend a curriculum night for all Upper School parents. They may also sit down one-on-one with the Middle School or Upper School Head of Learning and Innovation to talk specifically about charting a course for their child in Upper School.
