Middle School Services

Middle school is a transitional step for students between elementary and high school.  The importance of a middle school education is enormous as it lays down the foundation for the student to go to high school and then to college.


There is an alarming increase in the number of high school dropouts or students who quit their education after middle school itself.  This can be attributed to the fact that the students decide on their own that they do not want to spend a further four to six years getting education.  Leisure is being preferred over education in this day and age; getting the students on the road to college should be done as early as possible.
