3 reasons You Need MindPrint for a Struggle-Free School Year

The school year has just started and it didn’t take long to remember your student struggles with learning. In fact, it may feel like you are struggling as you learn how to assist and maneuver your students' education. Sometimes students have a bad year, a difficult teacher, or hard a class but if you leave it up to the student they frequently realize this struggle too late.

 

A recent national survey from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and the Yale Child Study Center found of 20,000 + U.S. High school students, nearly 75% of the students reported feeling negative about their school experience. Almost 80% of students feel stressed about school in general.


Middle and High School is hard enough for your student as they learn to work their way through friendships, sports, and learning the latest TikTok trend. Now is the time to help them unlock their best learning potential.


Below are 3 reasons you should sign your student up for a MindPrint assessment.
