Blog 6 Ways to Help Your Child Succeed This School Year

Academic success is measured in various ways depending on the school: many schools use traditional letter grades (ABCDF), some value a grade-free approach and still others practice a ranking system based on a curve. No matter what type of grading system a school uses, every child has the opportunity to succeed. You can prepare your child for success through a number of different activities, beyond studying every night and completing homework on time. This school year, your child has the opportunity to succeed, and you can help him or her in many ways. To give your child the boost he or she needs to thrive this school year, here are six ways you can help.

These are only a few things you can do to help your child succeed in school. According to the Center for Public Education, two-thirds of teachers believe that their students’ performance is directly tied to parent involvement, while 72 percent of parents say children of uninvolved parents miss out on a vital part of the education process. No matter what you do, the most important part of helping your child succeed in school is staying involved, even when you’re busy.
