PSP Intro To Middle School Talk with Joyce Szuflita
The middle school application process is famously horrible.
It is your first real step into choice at a time when you are also beginning to worry about sex, drugs and rock & roll. I am here to talk you down and untangle the spaghetti of choices (district, borough-wide and city-wide, school based applications and charters).
I will also explain how it is a different kind of place than elementary. There is a reason that they stopped calling it "Junior High School". You may also feel that this is the start of the slippery slope to high school, but it is actually a great time to practice and make mistakes.
This talk is general information and sound advice. I won't be talking about specific schools and so it will apply, no matter what district you live in.
Here's what one parent had to say about one of Joyce's Middle School talks:
"...I was so impressed - I laughed, I cried :) - I left feeling not only informed but mentored and coached from one parent to another - I truly appreciate the work you do, the energy you do it with and the humor you bring to the table to keep us all sane."
