• How can I help my child adjust to Middle School?


    Answer:  Change for a young adolescent can be a difficult experience. There are several opportunities for your student to become comfortable with the Middle School.  They will visit Hixson at the end of their 5th grade year to tour the building and meet some key people that are important to their school day. We also offer a summer school program which allows students to be in the building without the regular schedule of a school day.  If you want to work with your child's grade level counselor or administrator, there are also opportunities to visit the school during the summer months before school starts.
