Middle School:  A Critical Age

Rapid physical and emotional changes, combined with the hazards of today’s society, make early adolescence a crucial
period for developing healthy habits. Middle school students are at a crossroads of sorts: they are too old for the day care
setting and possibly too young to participate in after-school sports and activities that often begin in high school. Cognitive
growth occurs gradually and irregularly, so most middle school students require ongoing, concrete, experiential
learning in order to develop intellectually. Many adolescents also begin experimenting with sex, tobacco, alcohol and other
harmful drugs, all of which pose serious threats to personal health.
