Supporting a smoother, more successful move up.
Kells recognizes just how daunting the transition from elementary to high school can be for many students, with more challenging coursework, increased homework and new social dynamics. Sitting directly opposite the new levels of freedom they experience as high school students are the new expectations— of meeting more rigid deadlines, and assuming even greater responsibility for their own learning. Kells’ multi-level support eases the transition and lays groundwork for a positive and enriching high school experience.
An environment ideally suited to identifying and dealing with any student’s transitional difficulties before it becomes a problem, Kells’ small classes, and teachers dedicated to ensuring that every student benefits from a successful learning experience, considerably lessens the impact of the major culture shift that so many students find challenging. Our academic program structure eases the transition too, offering regular, enriched, and adapted options. Assistance with homework and organizational skills, as well as resource help, is available to all students. After-school tutorials and summer school can also help fill in any gaps in learning.
