Free Basic English Classes Testing Next Week

The Tomball campus of Lone Star College offers free Basic English Classes for a limited number of people from the community. If you want to take this class you MUST first be tested for your level of understanding of English so you can be placed in the appropriate class. There are always more people than spaces in these classes so come early to your testing, and if possible, come on the first day.

Resources for Homeschoolers

If you walk around to the far side of the Round Wall, you’ll find resources upon resources for Homeschooling. We’ve brought in books with ideas for students from pre-school to college prep, and for various learning situations and styles. We have help for teachers and help for students. We even have help for people wanting to consider homeschooling. We hope they are helpful!
