The Association for Middle Level Education has joined with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, The National Association of Elementary School Principals, and The National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform to declare March the official month to focus on students ages 10 to 15 and celebrate middle level education.


The key messages for the celebration are:

  • The importance of parents being knowledgeable about young adolescents and being actively involved in their lives;
  • The understanding that healthy bodies plus healthy minds equal healthy young adolescents;
  • The realization that the education young adolescents experience during this formative period of life will, in large measure, determine the future for all citizens; and
  • The knowledge that every young adolescent should have the opportunity to pursue his or her dreams and aspirations, and post-secondary education should be a possibility for all.
