Myth Two: Learning Online is Beyond Boring
Let’s face the facts: Nobody wants to sit in front of a computer all day reading large chunks of texts or watching a 30-minute video lecture. Just like you would expect in a brick-and-mortar classroom, online learning should include different learning formats and opportunities to connect with peers.
At Primavera Online School, 6-12 grade students learn using curriculum designed for the online experience. Each course is rigorous, research-based, and contains captivating multimedia elements to help you build critical knowledge and skills and become college and career ready. For example, if you enroll in our high school US History course, you will explore incredible topics such as US involvement in WWII with videos, interactives, graphics and more. You will also participate in discussion boards and complete projects to apply your knowledge.
If you were to enroll in a Primavera middle school science course, you would discover the amazing world of biology all the way from cell history and theory to organism growth. You will see numerous videos and interactives along the way, like this one, which allows you to explore different neurons in the nervous system.
More than that, Primavera Online School offers the opportunity for 6-12 grade students to connect with a diverse and supportive community. You can join a variety of student clubs and attend them on a monthly basis, meet new friends in a staff-monitored chatroom, and more!

Myth Three: Teachers Online Don’t Care as Much as Teachers in a Classroom
Every student wants to know that their teachers care. When not meeting with your teacher in person every single day, it may seem as though your online teachers aren’t “there” for you as much. But that’s simply not the case.
Primavera teachers dedicate an incredible amount of time to ensuring each and every 6-12th grade student is successful and reaching their goals. They are carefully monitoring your progress and looking at your work. In fact, our teachers are deeply invested and involved in your learning.
