Are Virtual Elementary Schools Good for Kids?

Many kids benefit from attending virtual elementary schools, though they are not good for all children. Kids who rely heavily on socialization and in-person contact don’t do well with online classroom settings.

Other children learn best when on their own or in a quiet, private setting. These kids do well with virtual elementary schools where much of the work is done with a computer. Children who attend virtual elementary school read books, use workbooks, and take quizzes and tests at local testing centers. Virtual schools are a convenient option for many families and keep kids away from bullies and other issues they might have had at a traditional elementary school.
