Tips for a Successful Transition to HPMS

Parent Information Folder and Welcome Video
Please take time to look through our parent information folder and watch this video about Highland Park Middle School and all we have to offer for our students!

Relax
Middle School is an exciting time and most students have fun and succeed in their classes. Students also like the new independence that comes with middle school. This is the first time when students get to work with multiple teachers and move independently through the school building.

Ask for Help
Our school has many support systems in place. Students and parents can get extra help from homeroom and team teachers, their grade-level counselor or administrator, and the school social worker to name a few. The key here is not to be afraid to ask for help.

Homework
Incoming 6th grade students are not usually accustomed to the homework demands in middle school. Be sure to review all course syllabi and ask teachers for clarification when necessary.

Stay Involved
Just like in elementary school, parental involvement is directly linked to student success. Parents should stay in contact with teachers and help their child keep track of their homework and tests.
