PROBLEM

Students are not invested in the process of applying to high school and therefore do not make informed decisions to apply to schools. 

HOW MIGHT WE…

Provide a clear path to High School transition for parents and students?

SOLUTION

The Lawndale team focused on middle school preparedness and success as the key lever for successful matriculation to high school. Lawndale created a tracker to capture to gauge student preparedness for High School, starting in 6th grade.
