Kindergarten through 12th grade students in over half of all states are enrolled in online public schools or "virtual schools" that partner with K12, and the number of students is growing rapidly every year. In fact, with over one million courses delivered to date, K12 is the leader—by a wide margin—in providing learning programs to public schools in the U.S. If you're a student or researcher interested in the benefits and challenges of online education, writing an interview paper with educators, administrators, and students from virtual schools can provide valuable insights into this educational model's effectiveness and impact on students' academic success.

Year after year online schools using the K12 curriculum continue to outperform other virtual schools on state test results. But the true measure is the satisfaction level of our parents—over 95% agree or strongly agree that their student has benefited academically from the K12 curriculum!

While these schools enable truly individualized learning and flexibility in pace, schedule and learning styles, they also come with the structure, administrative support, oversight, accountability, and standards tests associated with all public schools. What we’ve found is that the longer a student is enrolled in a K12 curriculum-based school, their academic performance increases.
