What parents are saying about FVS:
In other news, my other son (one of your former students) is now in 7th grade and took the SAT in January as part of Duke TIP. He got his scores back yesterday and got a 1200: 450 English, 750 Math. I cannot overstate the impact that you and Fulton Virtual have had on his development. Finding Fulton Virtual is truly one the best things to happen for my boys and my son's score on the Math part of the SAT is a testament to that.
Thanks for all you've done!
Thank you for being there for my daughter; with your guidance, assistance & cooperation she completed her goals with this class. I can not begin to say how wonderful this opportunity was for her. She learned more than ever with this program set-up & guidelines. I do not want her to have to repeat any course again but if so; this is the way I want her to go. The instructors and information presented were better than any face to face instructions. I commend whomever recommended Virtual Campus instructions and learning techniques.
Thank you so very much for being a part of this school system.

Our son is having a GREAT experience with the FVS program. He came home jazzed about his cooking project for Spanish 2A. He researched a sweet food (his favorite food group) and we got the ingredients and he cooked them first thing last Fri night (even before dinner:)) and they were DELICOUS (he picked churros -- and we did not even have a deep fryer and I thought it was going to be a disaster). Ha!
We also learned why churros have the shape they do (experiential learning:)), the typically "star" or pointy out shape is clearly to allow for more surface area, which allows the churro to cook faster inside without burning:). Our son had talked us into buying a cheap pastry bag and shaped nozzle and the ones we cooked using that gizmo came out so much better than the others that we did when we were feeling lazy and just putting chunks of batter in the oil. (those were mushy inside).
Our son was "turned on" by the assignment and is blossoming in this course, as he loves going fast when he wants to and slowing down when he needs too, makes him feel he has extra time to do the assignment "right" or taking his time to have fun.
Just wanted you to know what you are doing is really positively impacting his education (so much so that his sister has now moved to a virtual Spanish class, given her background/situation it is perfect for her too). I am not discounting "real classroom" interactions - real classes are important, however when you have a child that doesn't exactly fit the mold in a particular subject this is an incredible option. I thought it would be inferior and I am thrill that the opposite is true.
Additionally, I appreciate the level of communication you have provided! Thank you for all you are doing!
