Going back to school can be intimidating for students of all ages. This is especially true if a student is trying something new, like online school, or transitioning from middle to high school. If a student has had a negative experience in the past, this makes back to school even more difficult.
We live in an increasingly digital world, with many people performing most of their daily work online. It follows that our students are also experiencing online education and online schools are appearing everywhere. With so much of their experience online, how can we ensure our students are getting the personal attention they need in order to thrive?

Quality education paves the way for a bright future for the next generation, but an education has to be relevant to current trends. Students and families have many choices in front of them, especially with the recent explosion in online learning. However, choosing the right school is easy with the right information. Families should ask the question,
“How will this school help each student get from high school to their career?”
Lots of online high schools are making big promises about the success of their students. It can be difficult for families and students to discern which school is right for them. A school may offer the latest and greatest in educational trends, but unless they are informed by data on the needs and wants of their students, they are not likely to find much success. Beyond being data informed, a school’s entire staff should have a can-do spirit, the kind of attitude that is contagious to their students, and should be actively collaborating in their local community.
Every Student Is Unique. Their School Should Be Too!

High school graduation is just around the corner for many high school seniors and their families. Some students have some idea of their path moving forward, whether it is college or technical training, or entering the workforce right away. However, there are a growing number of high school graduates who are feeling lost and overwhelmed when it comes to future planning. What can schools do to ensure their graduates have every opportunity to chart a path forward that works for them?
Students nationwide are preparing for state and national standardized tests, and for some, this means they are already experiencing test anxiety. Whether they are in traditional, online, or alternative schools, most students are required to participate in some sort of standardized testing. While some will exercise rights to “opt out” of testing, the majority of students will test, whether it is to comply with school expectations or to have scores for college admissions.
Many schools, educators, and parents are focused on college readiness and getting students accepted to the “right” college. A four year degree is a great path for some students whose future goals require that level of education or even a higher degree. However, there are many well-paying careers that do not require a four year degree. How are schools, and particularly online schools, serving these students and ensuring that they have the skills and background necessary for success in their career paths?
