Halstrom Academy is a private, alternative high school located in Manhattan Beach. A student meets with a different teacher, per subject, each week. The student must demonstrate a minimum mastery level of 80% in order to proceed to the next assignment.
Students demonstrate mastery through oral and written assessment. The student?s ability and interest drive the course. The student and teacher determine the depth of study for each course based on the student?s goals, interests and abilities.
Halstrom Academy offers a range of courses. Students are prepared for a variety of choices after high school; therefore the course selection reflects all levels including college prep, general and workshop.
Halstrom Academy can instruct a varied range of student abilities. Some students are just not comfortable in a large high school setting. The year-round open enrollment and flexible scheduling allows part-time students to gain credits they might not have been able to complete at their current school.
Students do not attend all-day or everyday. This allows flexibility in a student schedule for work or athletic commitments. Students may be scheduled for morning, midday or afternoon classes.
I invite you to visit our school and see the success for yourself.
