Student-Driven Learning Process

On our campus, learning happens differently than at most schools. Besant Hill is not a traditional learning environment, as the average class size is ten students, teachers go by their first names, and every adult is aware of how each student is best able to learn. Classes are designed with all types of learning styles in mind. Teachers use the profiles of each student to ensure that lessons are designed with the versatility to incorporate a diversity of instruction so that all students reach their maximum potential.
