Eighth Grade is a time to build independence and prepare for the transition to high school. Students are expected to utilize support services to meet their individual needs. They can work with Lehigh tutors, stay after school for extra help, come before school for extra help, use online resources, or study independently in a supervised atmosphere after school. The goal is to move them to a higher level of proficiency and empower them to do what they need to do to succeed. Eighth graders are split between Team Lehigh and Team Lafayette.
