High school is when we begin to transition our students into college life.  A big part of that transition is learning time management.  As a teen, your student is juggling classes, extracurricular activities, athletics, a part-time job, and friends and family.  It can be difficult to remember all of the details!

A good planner works for you and your needs.  What is right for one person may not be the best option for someone else, so take a moment to investigate each option and find the one that works best for your student.

Two great planners, Clever Fox and Panda, were not included in this list because they are only designed to last six months…which isn’t enough to get you through the school year.
