This has been a wonderful alternative to regular school for my gifted daughter. The teachers have many years experience teaching in real schools, but many were fed up with unruly kids and parents that didn't care. I have constant contact with her teachers who are concerned, pleasant, and qualified! There are assignments that involve talking to other students, so you do get to know your classmates. If you are fed up with the poor choices of schools we have locally, I would highly recommend BVS.

I am a student here at Broward Virtual. I chose this school because I was bullied at my old school, like many of the students that go here. The other students are really nice and the staff is wonderful. I interact more with my teachers here than at my old school where my teachers were directly in front of me. I have a flexible schedule and learn faster without distractions. We have school days where we (once a monthly) can meet other students that go to this school. We also have many field trips and community service opportunities that are not only fun, but educational. At first my mom had her doubts about sending me here, but when she agreed to let me learn here, and when she saw how much my grades were improving, she had no regrets. And at the end of the day, when I am done with my schoolwork, I actually have learned something. If I were a parent, I would choose this school for my child.
The substantive courses are excellent as are the very dedicated teachers. If you want good, thorough courses with one-on-one communications between student and teacher, this is the school. The principal is also one of those, "Okay, let's figure out how to make it happen," people. And it is free. They are also well into new service and social organizations. If you have a fast learner, an athlete, artist or child with another special talent this is the program that allows your child to practice their talent.
