Transitioning from middle school to high school can be difficult for students, and while each student experiences it differently, there are some common themes that indicate helping students transition from middle school to high school may be worth considering. Students going from middle school to high school can experience a variety of emotions including fear, nervousness, excited, or anxious. How a student might feel about the transition process depends on many factors including the level of knowledge they have about the process, how prepared they are for the transition, and how many changes will be taking place. For students who are moving to an entirely new school in the neighborhood or transitioning from a smaller feeder school to a large integrated high school, life is going to change to some degree. Research on the transition process indicates that proactive planning may decrease students' negative feelings toward transitions and result in fewer disciplinary referrals, suspensions, tardiness, absences, incidents of hazing, and dropout rates.

As children move through the educational system they pass several notable milestones, moving from elementary to middle school, then to high school and beyond. These milestones, or transitions, represent opportunities for student growth but they also are periods of disruption in the lives of developing children. Research in a number of venues using a variety of methods describes these transitions as having a significant impact on a majority of students. Some students adapt easily to these new situations yet others struggle, and in many cases seem never to recover from the setback. The first of these "normative" transitions takes place between elementary school and middle school, this study investigates the factors that affect normative school transitions as it applies to the move to middle school. To determine what factors may affect how students transition to middle school, this study relies on general sociological theories and current research in neighborhood and school effects, and utilizes a three level Hierarchical Linear Model (HLM) method of data analysis. A rich dataset from the Dallas Independent School District is used in a longitudinal study of three cohorts of approximately 12,000 students each. These students were enrolled in 28 middle schools, and had transitioned from 154 elementary schools.

Perspectives on Transitions in Schooling and Instructional Practice examines student transitions between major levels of schooling, teacher transitions in instructional practice, and the intersection of these two significant themes in education research. Twenty-six leading international experts offer meaningful insights on current pedagogical practices, obstacles to effective transitions, and proven strategies for stakeholders involved in supporting students in transition. The book is divided into four sections, representing the four main transitions in formal schooling: Early Years (Home, Pre-school, and Kindergarten) to Early Elementary (Grades 1–3); Early Elementary to Late Elementary (Grades 4–8); Late Elementary to Secondary (Grades 9–12); and Secondary to Post-Secondary (College and University). A coda draws together over-arching themes from throughout the text to provide recommendations and a visual model that captures their interactions. Combining theoretical approaches with practical examples of school-based initiatives, this book will appeal to those involved in supporting either the student experience (both academically and emotionally) or teacher professional learning and growth.
