Transitioning from middle school to high school is not an easy process — for teens or their parents. Come learn some valuable tips and tools to make the transition easier for you and your teen. A healthy transition involves multiple factors, including good sleep habits, nutrition that supports brain functioning, and social and emotional strategies for finding supportive peer groups and teachers.
