WEB - Where Everybody Belongs

STUDENTS HELPING STUDENTS SUCCEED

More and more studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in middle school, their chances for success increase dramatically. Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) provides the structure for 6th graders to receive support and guidance from 8th graders who have been through the challenges that middle school poses and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.

WEB is a yearlong transition program with three components that contribute to its success:

  • Middle School Orientation - WEB Leaders and 6th graders start building the mentor relationship and receive information about how to be successful in middle school
  • Academic Follow Ups - WEB Leaders support 6th grade academic success and character development through classroom lessons
  • Social Follow Ups - WEB Leaders and 6th graders connect outside the classroom at social events to increase student engagement and promote a positive school climate
