Back to Basics K-12 Private School is designed with your child in mind:
My child struggles to pay attention in a crowded classroom. Can a 1-on-1 school help him focus?
In a 1-on-1 setting, students have the constant attention of the teacher, so that they can listen and speak with much more comfort than in a group situation. Each child’s strengths and non-strengths are addressed more fully — without the distraction of other students or the teacher’s compensation for a variety of skill levels in one classroom. Plus, each student can go at his or her own pace and benefit from each teacher adapting to his or her individual learning style.
My child has been identified as gifted and is simply not challenged at his current school. Would a 1-on-1 environment help?
Your child may benefit from an innovative 1-on-1 approach to learning. Since students are able to move at their own pace and teachers are not focused on a range of skill levels found in a traditional classroom, the sky’s the limit! In addition to core curriculum, your child may want to explore a broader range of electives or Honors courses not offered at the school he is currently attending – from Mandarin Chinese, to Anatomy, to Art History.
My child is currently pursuing a future career while still in school. How can a 1-on-1 school help simplify our hectic life?
If your student is actively pursuing a career in acting, modeling, dance, or sports, congratulations! Hard working students like yours have a host of additional challenges when enrolled at a traditional school, the least of which is simply scheduling. Back to Basics’ 1-on-1 setting can allow your child to more easily fulfill school requirements while juggling auditions, work, games, practice or travel. School hours can be adjusted to outside obligations, so that no assignments or class time are missed. And, because Back to Basics K-12 Private School is a Delaware Department of Education-approved school, seniors graduate with a high school diploma.
My child is socially immature. Would a 1-on-1 school be a good fit?
Every student deserves an environment conducive to him or her. The experienced instructors at Back to Basics join forces to create a unique environment where your child can learn — and feel good about school. The results can be transformative! After one to three years, Back to Basics K-12 Private School students confidently return to a traditional school setting or graduate.
My child is coping with a medical issue. How would a 1-on-1 school benefit her?
Whether your student has a chronic condition, emotional challenges, or has a short-term medical issue, a 1-on-1 school may be the answer. Back to Basics K-12 Private School offers a uniquely caring and supportive academic environment with scheduling flexibility to ensure your child’s academic success.
