Algoma High School has made some changes to the school day. One of those is the Academic Learning Lab (A.L.L). The lab is primarily the replacement for study halls, and offers students help from English, Math, History, and Science teachers during a 50 minute period.
Algoma High School math teacher, Jeffrey Buczek says the A.L.L. gives students a block of time during the school day where they can get help from their four core teachers.
Students may now focus on homework that they need help on. The Academic Learning Lab benefits students because they are given more hands-on time with the teacher they need help from. The A.L.L. offers students a quiet place they can use to catch up on their grades, practice tests, or get help with AP course work.
Algoma High senior Karley Wery says she finds the lab very helpful.
With the A.L.L, students are given the chance to get more work done in school rather than at home. That makes it easier to participate in extracurricular activities that occur after the school day. With all the benefits presented by the academic learning lab, Algoma High School can be an academic and athletic school.
