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.
