School briefs - Performance Learning Center
Every student in the Performance Learning Center (PLC) has his/her own reason for enrolling. As many may already know, the PLC program is for students to have an opportunity at a smoother, less tense school environment. I have found it to be a very efficiently run school and a place where I can concentrate.
We asked four students questions based on their experiences with the program. Each student is in a different phase of their high school career.
Besides the opportunity for early graduation, what was the main reason you decided to enroll in PLC?
Tiarra: I decided to attend PLC because I was able to work at my own pace. At my home school, I would sit in class and zone out as the teacher was speaking, so when she handed out assignments, I was lost.
Jordan: To get myself straight. This keeps me motivated to do some type of work every night.
Courtia: There was too much drama in my regular school, and the crowd was big.
Kareema: I had family responsibilities that kept me out of school. I came to PLC so that I can graduate in June.
What do you like most about the program?
Tiarra: I like the support. The teachers and the administrators go out of their way to help you.
Jordan: It’s online and you can work on it 24/7.
Courtia: I like that you work on your own pace, and it moves fast.
Kareema: I like that you can work at your own pace.
