Middle School Coordination

Student enrollment across New Hampshire is shrinking.  Which means we have 14% fewer students in high school today than we did 10 years ago.  Middle school enrollment is not much better.  Fewer high school students means fewer prospective college students.  Fewer college graduates means NH's workforce struggles to fill high level jobs.  The domino continues...

  • It is more critical than ever before for New Hampshire to prepare each and every student for college and career.
  • We need to ensure every student has the tools and skills to go to college (2-year, 4-year, certificate program, etc)
It starts by promoting NH Scholars earlier than high school.  We need middle schools to spread awareness at the 6th and 7th grade level.  
  • Only 23% of 8th graders complete Algebra I.  We need to increase this number as this is the gateway class for high school students to complete 4 years of math classes.

What can you do?
  • Host 6th and 7th grade information sessions.
  • Invite a community partner or a high school rep to speak about it.
  • Invite current high school students to talk to middle schoolers.
  • Send home information to middle school parents.
