Should I switch to online school?

The decision to switch to online school depends on your child’s unique needs and your family’s lifestyle. Consider the following questions:

  • Is your child struggling to thrive in a traditional classroom setting?
  • Does your child have medical conditions that require a more flexible and safe learning environment?
  • Is your child craving a more challenging or flexible academic experience?

There are many great reasons to transfer, and understanding why families make this transition can help guide your decision-making process.
