"There’s no time wasted in the classroom. Everything you do is important."

— Coral, high-school student

“I’ve taken advanced classes, so I was like, I can do this, it’ll be easy. And I didn’t realize how much effort you actually have to put in to Edgenuity. I like the challenge.

— Andrew, high-school student

“On the dashboard, you can, at all times, just go in and see where you are. That helps me stay focused because if it gets red, then that means I need to start working more.”

— Kyle, middle-school student

“It’s a lot of fun, playing games to win over the kid’s mind. You’re actually learning but you don’t know it.
