How do you know if a school is as good as they say? Successful schools will be able to provide authentic testimonials from current and past students who are going through (or have gone through) the school system itself. From first year students to grads, student testimonials help you to make an educated decision on a particular school based on what other real students have experienced.
When shopping around for schools, look for the online school reviews for both traditional brick-and-mortar and online schools. Online school reviews are critical for the success of many different schools, just as testimonials help local businesses to gain credibility in their community. What you hear from real online school students will come from students directly who have gone through the online school experience.
Without these reviews and testimonials, you would have to simply take their word for their accolades, but with testimonials you can see the impact the school has had on the child or family.
Particularly when you’re considering an online school for your child, a lot of different factors can make or break the online school experience. The quality and accessibility of the staff, the flexibility of deadlines and coursework, and the encouragement and support for students to self-motivate are all incredibly important, and San Diego Virtual School exceeds expectations in all of these areas.
Students who are seeking an online school experience typically have either struggled to keep up in previous educational environments or are determined to move more quickly than a traditional school allows. Additionally, we have some students who are highly competitive athletes or whose family life requires a flexible schedule for their education. At SDVS, our teachers are able to help all types of students get the help they need, expand their learning in brand new ways, and encourage success in each individual, regardless of their past academic accomplishments or challenges. Our student testimonials truly speak for themselves, and we are so proud of our students for working hard and appreciating the great online school environment that they get to be a part of.
