My daughter loves PAVCS. She can jump ahead on subjects she's good at, and take extra time where she needs it. She is going much better than when she was at a brick and mortar school.

This school is the worst I have EVER dealt with. From complete lack of communication, to worthless computers, to teachers that don't ensure kids are learning, to grade manipulation . . . HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE EXCUSE FOR A SCHOOL!!! If you value education and want your children to get educated - do NOT send them here!!!

My children entered PAVCS in 4th and 5th grades. Elementary, intermediate and middle school were wonderful! High School was another story. It was unorganized, teachers and administrators did not follow the diamond model. The scholars program was a nightmare. Had an administrator yell at my husband and myself in a conference, while our child was sitting in the room. Very unprofessional, and the kid was in shock listening to an administrator act so inappropriately. The principal was clueless to what was happening, When listening to a live class, 35 minutes were spent on "housekeeping issues" and not instruction. Totally unacceptable! Paid for a year book last year and still have not received it. Because we left the school we lost access to sapphire so never got a final report card, requested through FSC, Principal and with administration over summer, still have not gotten a report card even though I was promised after learning we had no access to sapphire we would get one. Have no idea how my child did on her Keystone exam last year. Totally disgusted. No problems ever encountered until High School. We took all 3 kids out, and are very happy at another cyber school.

I am a senior at PA Virtual. I have been with this school since 2002. Although it's had it's ups and downs I believe that PA Virtual is an all around good school. Most of the teachers care about the students, the staff attempts to help work around your schedule. Now, the asynchronous model this year is very biased and might have the school lose more funding, some may excel in one subject, but have another hold them back and then they are stuck in 90 minute classes all day. The classes are too close together, so the student is on the computer all day which is NOT healthy for the student or teacher.The school's problem is funding and they're always trying new things which isn't always great. Two years ago the school was working great, but now it's starting to turn. Hopefully if the school gets more money they can turn it back around.

Pa Virtual is pretty neat! We have a variety of courses, good teachers, and interesting videos made to inspire us. PAVCS needs funds in order to improve, we need more teachers and courses (we've had to cut some of both because of lack of funding), but I like the teachers that we have. Some of them are really cool.

I started this cyber school since I was in Kindergarten, I've always loved it, the teachers, students the class setup. I could be open in the class room, the teachers were always supervising what was being said and it helped so no big arguments started. A thing I would like to change is that we get more funding so we can become even better (more teachers, more outings etc..) I'm in my junior year now and I still enjoy this school.

The 2013-2014 school year will be our first at PAVCS. Since registering in March, everyone including the enrollment team, health team, placement team, ambassador team, family support team, and teacher has been responsive and helpful. In fact I chose this school over another one in PA using the same K12 curriculum due to the lack of responsiveness and poor communication skills on the part of the other school.

I love this school. Brick and mortar public school seemed like the I-can't department; everything my parents wanted them to do to enrich my education, they said they couldn't do. The class instruction was slow, which made it extremely boring for me. A lot of "busy work" had to be given because I would complete tasks so quickly. And the homework was also an issue; I felt I really didn't need it, yet they gave it to me anyway -- and it was just more busy work. In PAVCS (which uses K12) the curriculum is challenging (I can't just coast through it and get good grades like I was able to do in B&M; I actually have to work hard), and the only homework I ever have is homework I create for myself -- uncompleted schoolwork. If I get everything done, once I finish all my subjects, the day is officially over. Plus, I have learned skills I wouldn't have learned otherwise. I have learned to create and manage my own schedule and keep track of my own time, while in B&M school, the school takes care of all that. It is a big change from B&M school, and PAVCS is a wonderful school. (But minor OLS glitches, grading issues, and computer problems - minus 1 star.)

I give this school a five star rating! Two of my children have been enrolled with this innovative learning experience for 10 years. The teachers are EXCELLENT and they provide the students with professional learning discoveries and more. The principal shows extraordinary leadership. They are actively involved with the day to day schedules and their doors are open to meet and or address any concerns. I am highly involved with the parent organization we take every effort in supporting our children's future as well as implementing plans to keep our school on the move. One word of advice if you are apprehensive about enrolling related to social activities no worries this school has plenty of opportunities in all grade levels for students to meet and greet each another. I like the fact that my children are learning in a safe environment and the curriculum used by K12 is a real fun-filled educational package plan that keeps me children interested. There is never a dull moment in my kid s educational experiences. PA Virtual Charter School is the way to go!

Maybe I should explain. The grammar, intermediate and middle school are wonderful. I've had my children enrolled for 5 years and had receptive, understanding teachers. They were/are awesome and really care about the students (and learning coaches!)! Once you hit high school, LOOK OUT! Teachers become very much like brick and mortar colleagues...insensitive, inflexible and downright impersonal. PAVCS sells the "Diamond Model" and pretty much upholds it, until high school. Many ineffective and unproductive phone calls, unanswered emails and highly unqualified teachers all result in a suffering student. There are many unrealistic work expectations by the so-called teachers and the administration in high school loses their personal touch and the learning coach inclusion model is not only absent, but discouraged. Overnight it seems they began to treat their long time, loyal families like obstacles and appear to highly dislike and avoid accountability. I am not accustomed to complain, but I wish someone would have warned me too, for the sake of my children. Find a different cyber school for high school, trust me.

K12 math, L.A & science curriculum is good, but other schools use it too. I find many teachers unfit for PUBLIC school. Some just don't know how to keep their political, personal opinions separate, and teach w/o bias, sticking to facts & curriculum. I'm constantly doing damage control after a live class, correcting OPINIONS a teacher gave as fact. Most K-4 teachers seem fine, but in grades 5 & up teacher quality dwindles. They tell kids they can take tests as many times as needed to reach desired grade! How is that preparing them for the REAL world? They use the redundant & counterproductive I-ready test program that frustrates students & tells nothing of skill level. Socially, well, you read some recent reviews. I simply concur. I feel $ is a priority so they're catering to their highest enrollment demographic. I'm going back to homeschooling. I do all the teaching anyway. My kids don't need a school that only cares about looking good on paper & keeping high enrollment to get $, even if it marginalizes some. I feel for the few good & progressive teachers there who are seeing the school decline. I know it breaks their heart like it does mine. It was once a good school.

PAVCS has a great mastery curriculum. However, I agree with another review. Regarding promoting tolerance, PAVCS fails. PAVCS offers many social outings. Due to lack of programs promoting tolerance & as mentioned by another review, lack of staff knowledge on such issues, I was apprehensive to attend outings. A "very enthusiastic" parent encouraged me to attend. She said,"Its a chance to educate". She's sweet, but wrong. We attended a couple of outings. Teachers seemed polite, but distant. Many(not all) student families aren't friendly to "different" people & simply refuse to "be educated". You don't have to agree with all, but kindness is just human. Many families didn't return smiles & hellos to "different" people & tension was thick. Kindness for fellow man should be global, not regional, but maybe outings are better in S.E region, where its more diverse? It doesn't change the fact that there's a lack of school-wide programs condemning bigotry & promoting tolerance. I teach my child tolerance & I expect it taught in a PUBLIC school, which PAVCS is. PAVCS is great for core subjects. If you expect social enrichment with cultural diversity & tolerance education, PAVCS falls short.

It really upsets me that I decided t take my son out of brick and mortar school to go virtual. This is my sons first year starting with PAVCS and the reason was because he was being mistreated by his teachers and not getting the special attention he needed to succeed. Unfortunately, ever since I signed up for PAVCS its very difficult to get a hold of anyone. Additionally, I am having problems with the computer they supplied and I have been strung along for the last 5 hours, being told to call several different numbers and being placed on hold for almost 30 minutes at times and no one can help me. It makes me sick that they receive almost 10,000.00 per student per year (Don t believe me? Do your homework) and parents do most of the work and they can t even provide proper support and equipment. I am not sure I will be staying. If this is the beginning, I am not sure I can depend on this school until the end.

We love the math, language arts & science curriculum at PAVCS. Although some of the Language Arts & History lessons seems too pro-Christian. (unbiased teaching of ALL religions is great, endorsement is not). The main problem is that not much is done to condemn bigotry, promote tolerance, and definitely not enough is done to teach about cultural diversity. I mean its PA, outside of Philly, these issues desperately need addressing and the people need to be educated on cultural differences & tolerance. Teachers at PAVCS just aren't very educated on these topics. Teachers also aren't very involved, supportive or friendly once you get to upper grades. The primary grade teachers (K-4) are very good. Once you get to 5th grade, teacher quality starts to dwindle. I expected the school to get better & continue to hire great teachers especially for higher grades, but it doesn't seem that it has. Maybe its due to poor interview practice when hiring teachers, poor hiring standards, or not knowing the needs of the students, which come from a variety of backgrounds. Whatever it is, I think we've overstayed our welcome in the school, and may join others who left if things don't improve.

This is our second year with PAVCS and it seems as though the quality of their program has really dropped. The teachers never call any more to follow up with progress, we can't see any online sessions anymore. This school is a sinking ship and management better wake up fast and make some changes.

This is the first year my daughter is attending PAVCS. Prior to this, she attended a "brick and mortar" school (she is in the 8th grade). Because of a demanding sports schedule, she had to work at a self pace. When we signed up, we were told sessions would be available to be viewed after the class was already over. They call them recorded elluminate sessions. One of the very important classes (Algebra) was not recorded and the teacher was not cooperative at all. I would not recommend this school.

I have been with PA Virtual for 2 years. The teachers are very supportive and try to make sure your not having problems with your school work. The curriculum is a lot easier than a regular brick and mortar school. Teachers have office hours every Friday where you go and talk to them if you need help with anything. Their Technology Team could definitely use some work!!! The teachers even contact parents to let them know how their students are doing. Parents know what is going on, unlike brick and mortar schools where you have to wait for report cards, or go into the school to find out any information. If you feel that cyber school is the best choice for you and your family I would definitely recommend it!!!

We have been with this school for ten years. With students in 4th, 7th and 9th grades, our days are very full. I have one student in Title 1 Reading because of dyslexia. Another has different needs, both Occupational and Cognitive. In a brick and mortar setting these two would just be passed from grade to grade not expected to amount to much. The teachers and staff at PAVCS have encouraged my special needs students to excel in all that they do. Requiring their best performance in all that they do. This model includes many family support options to help keep the educational experience a good and productive one for both the parent and student. One note about enrollment. Go to the website, and enroll through it. There are videos that answer most all of the questions a new family might have. They even touch on what the expectations are when you enroll in our school.

On the middle school level PAVCS is a great school. My daughter went from being a "D-" average in her brick and mortar school to "A's and B's" in PAVCS. However, if you have a child with learning differences entering PAVCS high school will be a MAJOR challenge. I would NOT recommend PAVCS for high school students.

This school has given my boys the opportunity to excell in areas where they were falling behind in the brick and mortar schools. My younger son was a full year behind in math when he started at PAVCS and absolutely hated math; now, four and a half years later, he is a full grade level ahead in math and actually plans on teaching math as a career. What a difference caring and individual attention can make. The teachers are excellent and the curriculum is challenging; the resources are plentiful and the opportunity for personal growth for each child is outstanding. I have recently pulled my step-daughter out of a well-known boarding school to enroll her in PAVCS as well because I know she will get a better, more thorough education here at PAVCS without all the negetive aspects of a traditional school, and all of my children will be much more prepared to be independent learners for college.

PAVCS has been an excellent school for my children. We have consistently had great teachers who respond within the hour. Blackboard is a universal tool used by colleges and universities throughout the country, and successfully utilized at PAVCS. There is one password and username to enter into Blackboard for each student. Blackboard is one place where all announcements, in-school e-mail, course listings, outings, teacher and Family Support Coordinator contacts are located, as well as, direct links which are individualized for the student. The school's main mission is to see each student succeed. They have been there for my children to individualize based on his/her academic needs (either slow down or advance). New offerings are based on parental feedback. PAVCS utilizes K12, same as Agora, and the the student would have to log onto their couse listing, in the same manner as a child at Agora.

I think its a horrible school. I am always emailing my teachers reciving a 'out of my office' responce. Let me say this, if you are looking for a good teachers who respnde to emails and encourage your student/children it is not the school for you. When you student/ children are failing they will make it feel like him/her has no hope. I'm telling you. I will never ever use this schooling again. The website (blackboard) is not user friendly. It's is confusing you have to sign onto 10 different things just to do your work, remember 20 different unsernames and passwords. Now agora, great school! If your are interested in you son/daughter doing a online school I suggest Agora, you get admediate respnce to emails, the teachers set up an IM where the student, if they need help, can IM te teacher, reciving a responce right away outstanding school.

PAVCS has been a wonderful schooling venue for our family for 6 years. Our children work at their own pace at appropriate grade level by subject and accomplish self guided learning as they progress through the curriculum. These kids will be schooling in a way similar to college style learning in high school! I see this as a huge advantage when college does begin. This style of learning is so successful in teaching children how to learn independently. PAVCS uses K12 curriculum which is OUTSTANDING. This school curriculum is top notch, challenging and so thorough. Our three children are leaps and bounds ahead in so many ways. People worry about the socialization missed by schooling at homw. I am thrilled with the negative socialization missed!

My son just finished 4th grade! We had no complaints. . . great teacher support! He had conference calls twice a month. My daughter just finished 7th grade. Teacher support for middle school children is non existent, or at least for us. We got a call at the beginning of the year and at the end from her home room teacher. That was it! For my son, I would've rated it a 5, for my daughter, a 2 is as high as I can go.

In reading the previous review I have had the complete opposite experience with 2nd and 4th grade. We have participated in approximately 12 novel discussions and ALL have been punctual, thorough, well-planned, and expanded upon and aligned with the K12 lessons. We also participated in the many written composition classes, which were well-planned, punctual, orderly, and the teacher provided support outside of the set class time. Our teachers have been well-informed, professional, punctual, supportive through conferences, questions via-e-mail, etc. The reminders teachers provide concerning progress in hours and curriculum are meant to provide guidance and structure for the student so that the required progress can be made based on the student's needs and with the knowledge that the materials were received late from K12. Online opportunities to socialize are vast (chess/checkers, touch math, etc.) as well as learning link sessions which are led by teachers and support completion of the K12 lessons.

We are completing our 1st year with PAVCS. The curriculum is outstanding, but the teacher/school support could be better. Teachers had little interaction with our children (2nd and 4th grade). Most disappointing were the online novel discussions that were offered throughout the year. In only one case did the teacher show up for all of the classes. Teachers seemed to be unfamiliar with basic aspects of the curriculum and there was a lot of pressure to complete the curriculum even though materials arrived as late as 2 months after the start of the school year. Social interaction has been a difficult area. There are few opportunities to interact with other children from the school. In addition, while field trip time counts towards the required hours, on-line lessons still need to be completed.

This school is awesome! The schoolwork is pretty cool, and it's challenging. There's programs for the gifted students, and for the student with special needs. In elluminates, there's a lot of communication, so you feel like part of a group. You tend to think of your classmates as a branch of your family, at least that's what I found in my experience. There are a lot of co-curricular programs, and it's cool. At PSSAs, it's exciting when you get to meet some of your classmates. So, yeah, I totally love this school!

This school has far exceeded our expectations on so many levels. For the first time in our educational journey we can see that our son is truly challenged ! The diversity of the programs offered and student support offered is so much more diverse that you can imagine without actually participating. PAVCS works with each family to ensure the individual needs of the student are met or exceeded. In a traditional school there is no way our child could be taking Spanish in 3rd grade as well as participating in such stimulating groups as Reader's Theater, Checkers, Chess, Sudoku, Novel Discussion groups and much more all while working through traditional coursework. WE LOVE PAVCS! If you have had a less that positive traditional school experience and can make this type of commitment to your child's education I encourage you to look into PAVCS.

We have been with PAVCS for seven years and will never switch to a brick and mortar school. My children are above grade level and this school is the epitome of the 'No child left behind'. No student can advance to the next lesson until they are able to achieve a mastery of 80 % for each lesson. This way a child will never be left behind. We have wonderful teacher and school support behind every child. I am proud to be a parent of two PAVCS students.

We've been with this school for 5 years. I use it for my 2 elementary-aged daughters. It is a perfect match for both of them. One is bright and likes to move at a fast pace. She doesn't like wasted time and she enjoys exploring topics that interest her. My other daughter has special needs and we've found the special ed. dept. to be top-notch. They provide excellent related services, far better than we've received elsewhere. IEP conferences are pleasant experiences with this school! I've found that it's all about providing my children with the best possible education, not politics and money.

The K12 curriculum is EXCELLENT. The parents and teachers are wonderful.

In an age where we all worry about drugs, teen pregnancy, and violence, virtual schools eliminate all of those issues during school hours. School hours are more productive because there are no other things vying for the students attention - just academic learning. One of my children is disabled and the other had difficulty learning to read and spell. The regular school system ended up not being able to help either of them. And my children were ridiculed more and more as they began to fall further behind in academics. Learning at home through the PAVCS has enabled them to learn quickly, thoroughly, without ridicule. They are relaxed and they truly enjoy their school work. Which for me is a real but very very welcome surprise.

I spent a great deal of time researching curriculum guidelines for elementary children. I found the one utilized by this school to be excellent. My child, who is currently in the 2nd grade, is excelling in all areas. The art curriculum is well rounded. I'm least impressed with the music curriculum. Although some aspects are great, because of the exposure some music genres, I feel that it is lacking in some areas. Being musically inclined, I find myself interjecting my own influence frequetly. The teaching staff is an excellent resource. I was impressed with the history curriculum because,it began with world history as opposed to starting with America as the starting point, giving the child a concept of the entirety of the world at an early age. To feel a part of the school, you must put forth an effort to be involved by participating in school outings.

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
