What Is Success Bound?
Success Bound aims to redesign the middle school experience to include explicit goals and skill-oriented student preparation for high school and beyond. The program emphasizes changes in schoolwide conditions for learning and adult support for student transitions across the whole school community. This is done by placing greater value on counseling during the middle school years, strong adult-student relationships, and a collaborative approach to instruction between counselors and teachers. Success Bound addresses these core factors by equipping school staff with FREE resources to set students on a path of success.
