How To Help Your Student Be Successful at School

  • Reach out to your student's teachers when you have questions. 
  • Help your student develop a system to keep organized and track assignments.
  • Set aside a designated work place at home during the school day and keep consistent routines with school work, meals, and a sleep schedule. 
  • Read together.
  • Talk in a non–judgmental way about school, friends, drug, alcohol, other substance abuse concerns, and anything else that might influence your student’s success.
  • Know your student’s friends and friend’s parents. Communication is a powerful ally.
  • Watch for changes in personality, sleeping habits, eating habits, clothing, and grooming.
  • Have expectations and consequences related to your student’s behavior and academic achievements, and consistently enforce them.
  • Supervise your student’s “on–line” activities, as well as his/her free time before and after school.
  • Seek out appropriate resources if you are concerned. Our counselors and academic liaisons have many community related resources that they can share.
