School not only opens doors of opportunity in life but provides students with a platform to become learners equipped with a sense of independence and self-awareness. And yet, the school environment is also one that is competitive and stressful. Students are expected to meet the demands of intensive workloads and difficult assignments, all under the burden of time pressure. This can be taxing for both students and families. Being in control, and therefore remaining both motivated and focused, is paramount to gaining the most out of high school and unlocking the opportunities of the global workforce.
