Taking it in Stride: Successful School Counseling Strategies to Help Students Transition from Elementary to Middle School

Transitioning from elementary to middle school creates unique demands and/or implications for a student during a pivotal time in his or her life. To address this important issue, implementation of a comprehensive transitional program at the middle school level can promote positive transitional results in school and at home. A structured, comprehensive program is essential for the success of any student‘s transitional period. This thesis explores how a program to support the transition between elementary and middle school might successfully impact student achievement, motivation, and behavior through the implementation of a yearly transitional program through use of a comprehensive guidebook.
