Self-Management Skills for High School Students

By 12th grade, Executive Function skills are needed for a smooth transition to college, where heightened school demands compete with new freedoms and extracurriculars.

Parents and teachers may notice:

  • Organizational challenges: The student has difficulty organizing class materials, keeping track of and turning in homework, or approaching writing assignments and long-term projects
  • Behavior or emotional management challenges: The student may have poor relationships with teachers, be unable to resist distractions, have difficulty settling down to do work, or give up easily on challenging or tedious tasks
  • Time management challenges: The student leaves work until the last minute, causing panic and stress at home
  • Academic challenges: The student lacks persistence or often not start or complete assignments, may do poorly on tests due to ineffective study habits, may lose credit for late assignments, may not know how to take notes

Beyond BookSmart coaches help students uncover their individual motivators, develop strategies for success, and ensure that they are equipped with a toolkit for the world beyond academics.
