Most people only think of individualized courses when they consider online high school classes, but at American High School, we offer these and much more. Whether it is Elementary, Middle or High School, our NCAA program, International Dual Diploma program, Advance Placement or Enrichment courses, American High School in Plantation Florida has programs for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our programs are fully accredited so you will not have to worry about transferring of credits.
Are these programs right for your children? Let’s look at some of the key benefits of online programs for students.
Online Schools allow much more specified, tailored learning plans for kids who may need this sort of structure. The traditional classroom has become more flexible over the years, but there’s still no way to vary course plans in nearly the same ways, even in smaller class sizes. Instead of falling behind in areas in which they lack, or being bored and too far ahead in areas they’re already flourishing in, kids can succeed in a more personalized situation.
Naturally, this also means they’ll get much more individual attention. If they’re struggling in an area, you can spend much more time on it than they’d ever be allotted in a traditional classroom situation. They’ll spend less time correcting simple errors, and more time advancing within the coursework.
For some children, the negative social influences present in public or even private schools can greatly impact the learning environment. Whether this is bullying or any other form of social pressure, if it’s something your child may struggle with, homeschooling could be an option. Homeschooling doesn’t mean kids will have no friends – just that they’ll find them through different avenues. This could mean joining extracurricular activities outside the school such as martial arts, dance, city sports, or summer camps.
Best of all, a proper online school program can help build the bond between parent and child. Yes, there will be times where there’s tension, or you have to bring the hammer down as an educator and a disciplinarian. But through continued positivity and hard work, most parents and children find their relationship grows through the homeschooling experience.
With so many programs available, now all your children can attend online school and take advantage of all its benefits.
