Leaving grade 8 and entering high school for the first time is a huge step in your life.
It’s an exciting time to be sure, but understandably, you probably have some questions about how all your social, emotional and academic needs will be met.
To help you make a smooth and successful transition into your new school, the DSBN has developed a comprehensive transition plan to support the needs of each individual student.
From the time you begin thinking about high school, to choosing your school, to selecting courses and becoming comfortable in your new environment, the Grade 7 -10 Transition Plan has strategies to help you along the way.
Talk to your teacher or guidance counsellor to see what resources are available to you.
