Classroom-Based Instruction | By design, the Traditional Classroom Program (TCP) is a small, intimate learning environment. TCP class sizes average 20 students, as opposed to over 35 in many district schools today. By keeping the teacher to student ratio low, we create close-knit environment where students benefit by receiving personalized instruction.
Even though the classroom setting is traditional, the instructional approach is innovative and engaging. The TCP instructors take advantage of the small classroom environment by providing meaningful conversation, debate, and student interaction. Students are given collaborative learning and project-based assignments which make the curriculum more relevant.
The TCP Academic Advisor meets with each student individually on a regular basis to plan for their high school success and college preparation. Students work with the advisor to optimize their academic program based on specific college and career goals. The advisor periodically meets with students to review progress, assess aptitudes, and make recommendations.
