Differences between FLVS Flex and FLVS Full Time

By on June 8th, 2018

“Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.” – Robert John Meehan

Florida Virtual School began as an experiment to see if online learning could be tailored to students’ needs to help them succeed. Today, FLVS offers two distinct programs with the same shared goal: addressing the unique learning needs of every child.

As school counselors, we are often asked about the differences between FLVS Full Time and FLVS Flex. Parents want to know which option is best for their child. As they are very different programs, it’s important for families to understand their options and choose the one that will best fit their student.

Congratulations, Graduates!

By on June 7th, 2018

This post was written by 2017-18 FLVS Full Time Senior Class President, McKenzie Underwood.

Class of 2018, we made it! After counting down the days until graduation all year, we finally crossed the finish line. There is not a single person who did not work extremely hard to get this far. All the late nights studying, the DBAs, the live lessons, the collaborations, the final exams, they were all worth it. Be proud of yourselves, you didn’t get here by mistake.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge some of the amazing people who helped us get through the past four years of high school. Continue reading

Celebrating a Year of High School Success

By on May 24th, 2018

As the FLVS Full Time High School Principal, I am happy to report that we saw more student success in our courses this school year than ever before.

For both students and staff, the beginning of the 2017-18 school year was not quite as expected. We had a visitor named Irma that was intent on making our start anything but smooth. Irma did present us with some challenges, but our students stood tall and persevered through it all. Continue reading

This is exactly what some of our Mega News Network student-journalists experienced on Thursday, February 22 when they participated in an online chat with Olympic athletes live from South Korea! What a great way to celebrate Digital Learning Day!

New Course and Certification Opportunities

By on August 9th, 2017

Many don’t like to see stores stocking back-to-school supplies as early as mid-July.

I personally love it! As a parent and educator, I believe it’s a fresh start for students and teachers. Here at Florida Virtual School, we have students who take classes year round in our Flex program, but we also have students who follow a more traditional calendar with our Full Time program. Full Time students will be returning to school this month, and I want to share some of the exciting things happening this school year.

I’m particularly thrilled for FLVS Full Time students to come back this fall. If you’re attending FLVS Full Time this year, find resources to help you start the year off here! Continue reading
