Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School Reviews

Our son was the youngest student in his brick & mortar preschool. While he was extremely smart he was socially immature with an ADHD brain to boot. Because of this he did not fair well in a standard classroom setting. We considered holding him back a year but didn't want to hinder his lightening fast brain from academic learning. That's when we chose PA Virtual. After a year here I can confidently say it was THE BEST decision for us. He has flourished & is even smarter now! Without the endless distractions he faced at the brick and mortar school his focus has been laser sharp.

Miss Housam is FANTASTIC. She is highly gifted at teaching little children and capturing their attention, all while staying on track! We've enjoyed being a part of her class so much.

All in all we highly recommend PA Virtual. It's made our child smarter and has given him the opportunity to develop a healthy self esteem without worrying about the not so important social stuff.

I have been a student at PA Virtual since Kindergarten (now in High School) and must say that this school is the epitome of an A+! The curriculum employed by K12, while rigorous, puts education first and foremost while teachers are responsive and engaging. Furthermore, the A-synchronous / Synchronous freedom of choice provides students with the most beneficial capability to learn in either environment that works best for them. In addition, the variety of school clubs, outings, extra-curriculars, and numerous volunteer opportunities characterize PA Virtual as a dedicated school to its students, regardless of the grade. Certainly, PA Virtual is a school that you'll never forget!
The school gives students a lot of flexibility. However, it provides a minimal k-12 academic curriculum. The math courses gloss over many areas that are included on the Keystones and SATs. The science courses are basic at best. The health, gym, and sex education courses are lacking. The culture of the school is conservative and quite focused on giving parents access to/control over their children's academics through high school. This may be a good fit for some families; I came from an abusive household, so it was detrimental to me. The conservative culture creates a lot of bullying; students are punished for pushing back. I am a transgender man and faced severe bullying and discrimination at PA Virtual. At one point, I had to get the ACLU involved. There are no consequences for racism and religious discrimination. The school is biased towards Christian religions, and as a Jewish person, I was excluded. The voices uplifted at PA Virtual are white, Christian, cisgendered, and straight.
