The move from middle school to high school is tough. To help ease the transition, Podium staff mentored eight students at Albert Hill Middle School's "High School Information and Writing Clinic"!
The Podium crew assisted Albert Hill eighth graders in preparing for their transition from middle school to specialty high schools, such as Maggie Walker, Richmond Community, Open High, Franklin Military Academy, and Appomattox Regional Governor's School for the Arts And Technology.
During the writing clinic, the crew guided students through mock interviews, enabling them to showcase their unique personalities while receiving critical feedback. While the group worked on personal statements, Podium staff worked individually with each student in building confidence, understanding the importance of eye contact and body language, and choosing apparel for a professional interview.
Overall, Podium agrees that students at Albert Hill Middle School are well prepared and excited for their journey to high school! We wish them all the best!
