All students are assigned to a LEARN class during each of their grade levels here at Bala Cynwyd. The LEARN teacher assigned also serves as their RALLY advisor. The LEARN period is scheduled for 35 minutes at the end of the day each day of the 4 day cycle aside from selected Fridays each month when RALLY and Class Meetings are held.
Although the LEARN period is not a graded academic class, the time spent during LEARN is crucial to many students success while in middle school. There are two specific types of LEARN periods. The first type is a typical LEARN period in which students may use their time to begin working on assignments, visit teachers with questions, work with other students on group projects, organize their work, and make up missed work. In some cases a student may be assigned a LEARN room by an instructor for remediation or a specific assignment that needs to be completed. The second is a meeting period such as RALLY, Team Meeting, or Club/Rehearsal such as Advanced Choir or Model UN.
