Senior: I really enjoy the one-on-one classes. It enabled me to graduate early. The teachers and the administration are caring and supportive. The only downside for highschoolers is the lack of social life; however, I am very involved in community service, work and have many friends outside of Halstrom, so this doesn’t bother me.

Senior: I participate in the full online program, and I love it! The schedule is extremely flexible and allows for me to do most of my work at home. If I should need help with something I can go to their 'Cyber Café' to receive tutoring from my teachers. The curriculum is mostly average. AP classes or accelerated classes are available for online as well. One thing I wish was changed is that the online students aren't really kept in the loop for when sporting events and pep rallies take place, so it is hard to really be connected to the rest ignoring the student body. The dances are always a blast at Classical. The teachers are AMAZING and I wish I could bring them to college with me. There is definitely school spirit but nothing crazy. There is little to no bullying and there is some diversity. Everyone I have met through Classical is very nice and welcoming and I would definitely recommend this school to anyone looking for a good, small charter school.
