We are a Parent Partnership Program where parents of home schooled children and teachers from the Deer Park School District work together to define the educational goals and materials our parents and students use at home. The first session of Home Link started in September 2000 with 38 students. Today, we have over 500 students. We also provide core and supplemental classes at our Deer Park and Clayton campuses.

Some years ago, a program Mom told me that she wasn’t opposed to the state testing itself, but was certainly disinterested in the imposition which days upon days of testing had upon their home schooling regimen. Refused to test. Hmm…we scratched our heads in figuring out how to present the testing process differently. And then, it clicked. Testing by FAMILIES. Putting YOU first, and testing convenience second. It’s reduced the family commitment to 3 days, sometimes 4. It’s been good. Please know, we put you first whenever possible. And we know that you reciprocate whenever you can. That’s what I call a sweet partnership! Thanks, each of you, for making it what it is!
