On behalf of the Greater Ohio Virtual School, I would like to welcome the students and parents to our school. In 2001, ninety percent of school-age children used computers, and nearly three in four used the Internet to complete school assignments. Virtual schools are shaping K-12 education by breaking down barriers, creating interesting ways to measure subject-matter mastery and serving the diverse needs of today’s students. Virtual schools represent a renewal of education systems that will help give every member of the digital generation the skills needed for success in the 21st century.
Greater Ohio Virtual School’s mission is to provide students with a highly personal and continuous connection to learning through an online based education. The school deems that this quality instructional alternative will serve individual needs and prepare the student to transition into their next phase of life, be it entering the work force, military, or continuing their education.
