THE TEEN YEARS

When you consider that the teen years are a period of intense growth, not only physically but also morally and intellectually, it's understandable that it's a time of confusion and upheaval for many families. I hope that we can all work together as a team (teachers, administrators, parents, and students) to make sure your student has a successful high school career. We plan on sharing with you interesting articles and research about the unique development of teenagers and the complex teenage/parent relationship. I hope these are helpful.
