The ninth grade year is a critical juncture in a student s academic and social development. It is also a critical and difficult period for parents, as they must learn to approach their children as teenagers while still maintaining the necessary control and guidance to ensure their teenager s directed growth and success. In The Insider s Guide to High School, two veteran principals, Tim Healey & Alex Carter, with almost 40 years of combined experience as secondary educators, provide parents with an insider s view on how to best prepare, support, and coach their rising ninth graders. In this very approachable and honest book, the authors lay out six steps parents should take to prepare their ninth grade student for success in today s high school classroom. Using these steps, the book helps parents and their teenager develop a plan for success, improve communication, and learn to work together for a common goal. As an added bonus, these successful school leaders offer insider s advice on how parents can best support their child should they encounter some of the more difficult challenges of high school, such as poor grades, a bad teacher, and even a trip to the principal s office. Designed to provide real-world advice and support to those who are preparing to enter the world of high school alongside their child, The Insiders Guide to High School is a must read for all new high school parents.
