"We chose virtual education for our three children for various reasons since each one's needs differ. We were unable to find help to meet our eldest son's academic challenges at traditional public and private schools. At K12's partner school, Insight School of Washington, he began transforming from a failing student into a thriving leader. Our high school freshman daughter has regained confidence and is thriving in the safer virtual environment while overcoming the effects of bullying in her brick and mortar elementary school. Our youngest eight-year-old daughter, an advanced learner, works at a more challenging level. Both girls attend K12's partner school, Washington Virtual Academy. In our experience, K12's partner schools have provided personalized, high-quality curricula with excellent state-certified teachers working with us as involved parents—a formula for student success," explained Peter and Vanita Thomas."It seemed as if I was constantly playing a catch up game in the traditional public school, which made me feel like a failure. At my online public high school, with the help of excellent teachers, compassionate staff, and my parents' guidance, not only was I able to learn, but also excel. I was voted 'Student of the Year' at graduation and carried over about 40 credits to college. I currently attend the University of Washington-Bothell. In retrospect, I can't imagine what my life would have been like if I had had no choice but to remain in my original school environment," commented Sandeep Thomas, a graduate of Insight School of Washington, a K12 partner school.
