1:1 Class Sizes Doesn’t Mean Learning Alone
Enjoy the student life at Halstrom. Inside the classroom it’s 1:1, but outside it’s anything but. When not in class, students have many opportunities to work and socialize together through activities such as field trips and student government, and a variety of clubs including leadership, yearbook, dance and theatre club.
It’s School Work, Not Homework
This is most helpful for students and parents! Because the majority of student work is done outside the classroom, Halstrom provides two designated spaces at each campus that students can call their own. “HangOut” offers a relaxing atmosphere to socialize with friends, watch TV, play music and work on group projects. “The Study” provides workstations and a computer lab to finish assignments and study for tests. Each Quiet Study is staffed with a tutor to help students master the content outside of the classroom. This frees your student up from homework and you as a parent, do not need to struggle spending time trying to understand what is required.
Our students really do come from varied backgrounds with a wide range of abilities and learning styles. The benefit of teaching One-to-One means that learning is customized to them and for them. The small, nurturing environment at Halstrom Academy has provided a safe and socially engaging setting so our students make connections and lasting friendships. “At Halstrom I definitely feel like it's just one big happy family. Even in the first week, I met people that I already knew were going to be friends with me for the rest of my life.” Rachel S., Halstrom Student.
