TEMPLETON —On Tuesday, March 7, Templeton Home School, located at 964 Old Country Road, held its annual open house.
The free event, taking place from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., was open to everyone in the community — new and returning homeschool students and families alike.
Geared to the needs of homeschool families within the Templeton Unified School District, the open house gave parents the opportunity to interact with friendly, knowledgable and experienced representatives and faculty members.
Typically, students of Templeton Home School meet with their teachers once per week for an hour to discuss their upcoming curriculum objectives, home school teacher Donnia Callahan said.
“We sit down with the students — and their parents if the kids feel comfortable — one-on-one and figure out what works best for everyone,” Callahan said.
While Templeton Home School works in collaboration with other local schools in the district, they are especially unique in the sense that they offer elective courses including ceramics, art, Spanish and several others on an almost daily basis.
“We encourage a can-do attitude and want kids to have the opportunity and be able to take advantage of their preferred areas of interest,” Callahan said.
Templeton Home School is a great overall program for those students who feel traditional school systems are not for them. Whether children need to focus more on a specific subject, require more personal interaction or simply prefer learning on an individual basis instead of as a group, Templeton Home School offers completely individualized programs to meet each student’s specific needs.
