Is a K12-powered online high school in Texas a good fit for my student?
Each student enrolled in a K12-powered online high school in Texas starts their learning journey by working with certified teachers to tailor a learning roadmap specific to their strengths and interests. This personalized approach to learning helps ensure your student achieves their goals for high school and beyond. Online high school in Texas is similar to traditional school in many ways. Students follow a traditional academic calendar, and complete offline assignments and projects. They can explore a variety of required courses and unique electives taught by Texas-certified teachers and are expected to complete state assessments. Unlike traditional schools, students attend scheduled, live online classes. The number and frequency of teacher-led online classes varies depending on the student and the courses they are taking.
Online high school in Texas allows students to learn from the safety and comfort of home, on the go, or wherever there's an internet connection.
