Happy Student

Study Hall

A proctored study hall gives students a chance to complete some of their CHEC homework or out of CHEC work during their school time in order to allow more time after school for extracurriculars and sports. At this age, students tend to prefer working independently alongside their peers and are motivated to complete more work in less time.
