Lessons are taught at home through videos sent home by teachers, and homework is instead done at school, giving teachers one-on-one time to help students out.

Science teacher Matthew Stratmann says it's becoming more popular.

"I used to feel like I lost a few kids every year and now that I'm not shackled to the front of the room, I'm not tied down, I can actually move around and spend my day talking to kids," Stratmann said.

Twelve12 core classes are using flipped learning at Temple High School.

Officials are hopeful the number will grow.
