Chalk Talk: Why Freshman Year Is the Most Important Grade
According to studies, the ninth grade year is the most important in determining whether a student will struggle to succeed or meet the challenges of success head on. It is a pivotal year for many reasons. Freshmen are in the midst of the growth and angst of puberty and adolescence. Their brains are rapidly developing, but they still lack the decision-making and judgment of adults. Moving from middle school to high school is a very big step, with additional academic, athletic, social and emotional strains placed upon them. As such, many schools are implementing freshman transition programs to help ease them into high school life. These programs often include a mentoring program that pairs older students with freshman, as well as learning materials and trainings to help develop study skills, social skills and leadership abilities. So far, these programs have demonstrated much success in helping freshmen adjust to the demands of high school.
