For the sake of consistency and travel, we are going to keep the end time the same every day. Academies have always had to be flexible because of transportation issues.  Since there is no need for kids to travel between their first block and second block we actually gain 10 minutes of instruction time every day and of course we have flex time. With this in mind, if your child ever needs to stop working on their class work/ and take time on another subject during flex time, we have no problem with that.  We want this course to work for students!
