• 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 6th grade year to tour the building and meet some key people that are important to their school day. We also offer a transition class as part of the summer school curriculum.  In addition the incoming 7th grade students will visit Hixson right before school starts to walk their schedule and become more familiar with the building.
