Successful Mid-Year Transfers
School doesn’t have to feel so miserable/stressful/boring
for even one more day
The phone rings (or the email notification sounds) at School for Tomorrow; quite often, it is a parent seeking a solution for a teenage son or daughter who is not being served well in a particular school setting. The stories are unique in the details, but the common thread is the increasing number of students with untapped potentials stuck in less-than-optimal learning environments. Some have even reached the point of “school refusal.”
Fortunately, many of these initial contacts by parents have led to life-changing mid-year transfers.
The success stories of our mid-year transfer students is proof positive that one does not have to wait for a new academic year to improve a child’s – and a family’s – situation. Success can begin now at SFT.
Mid-year transfer students thrive at SFT
SFT’s unique approach allows students to join our learning community at any time. It creates engagement in learning and an eagerness to come to school every day. It supports a positive academic and social adjustment for every student.
SFT’s customized curriculum ensures that every student is right where he or she needs to be from the first moment. No student is ever behind when he or she joins us – at any point in the school year.
SFT is structured for each student’s success, with a learning environment that is both rigorous and flexible. Our student-to-staff ratio is 4:1 – one of the lowest in the D.C. Metro area. We get to know each student well, become a partner in the learning process, and, most of all, value what each brings to our community.
SFT helps students develop all they will need to succeed in college, the workplace, and in life, while simultaneously creating an environment where they can pursue learning in ways that are meaningful and practical to them as individuals.
Mid-Year Transfers to SFT: What Students & Parents Say
“My old school was a nightmare. When I came to SFT, it was a giant relief! The students were nicer, and the classes were better.”
“For years, we heard from teachers that our son was not working near to his full potential. At SFT, teachers have a deeper interest in his success, and the flexibility and time to support him as he finds his own way to succeed. Before SFT, school seemed to sap the life out of him. That’s changed.”
“I used to pretend to be sick to avoid school. Now, there’s a reason to come to school, and if I’m not feeling so good in the morning, coming to school actually makes me feel better.”
“[Coming to SFT mid-year] was an easy transition. I was accepted by everyone. A lot of stress was taken off, even in the first week. I felt like I was actually learning the material, not just memorizing it like before.”
“My son…came to SFT for a visit; as we were leaving, he turned to me and said, ‘I want to go to this school.’ He’d never said anything like that before. It’s clear that he feels completely at home at SFT. Coming here has been a huge, positive change in all our lives.”
