Last updated 10/25/2021 at 5:56am | View PDF
Shafter High School has partnered up with the Shafter Learning Center once again to start up the After School Tutoring program.
Students have the opportunity to head to the library after school to receive help in any subject from teachers on campus and the tutors provided by the Learning Center. The high school and town recognize that academic success for all students is extremely important and the extra support will help students achieve their goals.
The tutoring is structured as an academic setting but allows room for students to work together and problem-solve with their peers and teachers. The program is centered around student needs, and they can come and go as needed.
As the first quarter of the school year comes to a close, there are many celebrations coming from the students attending after-school tutoring, Many have been awarded Student of the Month honors; a few students have all As and Bs in their classes; the majority of students are passing 85% of their classes with a C or higher. The students are becoming better at self-evaluation and reflection, and they are achieving the goals they set.
Mike Little, a teacher that helps with the program, says it is “a place where students can get help in an encouraging environment. The tutors and teachers are always happy to be helpful.”
The program’s services are open to the general community. If you or your high school student would like some extra academic help, stop by Tutoring Monday-Thursday in the Shafter High School Library after school.
