How is Vista Virtual School similar to a traditional classroom setting for full-time students?
  • Students need to enroll in compulsory core courses (Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies) at each grade level
  • Our goal is to have students complete courses by the end of the school year for both the elementary and junior high programs and by the end of each semester in the high school program
  • Teachers are always ready to help and expect that students will ask for assistance regarding coursework and assignments
  • Coursework is done on one unit of study at a time in each course, submitting completed work regularly for evaluation by the teacher
  • Assignments are typically completed sequentially so knowledge gained in one assignment helps with the next
  • Students are given feedback by the teacher with the hope that they will follow suggestions to improve in successive assignments
  • Final marks are based on assignments, quizzes, and supervised exams 
  • Vista Virtual School students receive a monthly mini-report and a final report card each school year
