    "This is "out-of-the-box" learning when compared to the traditional school building. This is a great option for families. This is a model of learning that allows parents to have a more hands on approach with one-on-one time. It is a partnership of parents, teachers, weekly traditional classroom learning, daily one-on-one learning at home and weekly web based classroom all combined for the benefit of the child. The curriculum is also very rich, it includes: Math, Grammar, Composition, Literature, Spelling, Vocabulary (Phonics for younger children), History, Health, Science and Art."

    "CVCS is a school of opportunity, and not just for it's student's but for the families and surrounding communities. We are a part virtual, part brick and mortar educational institution. We offer all students regardless of ability or disability grade K-12 a non traditional way of learning. We hold parents accountable for there role and responsibility in their child/children's education. We work together (staff/families/student's) building creativity as well as individuality in each student. When our student leave CVCS after 1 year or 12 years, they leave with a better learning foundation, and our parents with a sense of pride and self accomplishment. I don't know of another public school(brick and mortar) that's does that. Educating in the traditional way was good for earlier generations, but the world we now live in is inundated with every form of technology imaginable, so why not incorporate old school methods such as knowing how to "WRITE" a letter or do hand writing in cursive with new forms of technology such as power-point presentations along with research tools for use with any subject. Chicago Virtual Charter School offers the education of the future right here today!"

    "Pulled my child out of Blaine for numerous reasons (really didn't like being hit up for $$$ all the time "can you DONATE $2500 and an additional $2500 on behalf of a family that can't afford it, no typos, yes, $2500) and tried the RGC at Pritzker which we grit our teeth through 4 years and finally could not tolerate the bullying and time and attention it took just to make it clear to CPS that my child was not to be hit, kicked, bit, scratched, punched, hurt, etc...had to deal with retaliation to our family, both parent and student, and have finally found CVCS to enroll in. The people at the school are friendly and do not turn you away. There is a parent area. The history was broken down into 3 categories and was impressive in design and more than I expected my child to receive in the next 4 years at Pritzker. You are able to supplement your child's lessons and go deeper into material if you desire. At first I was apprehensive that my child would be on the computer all the time and the lessons are really not like that. The hybrid material requires some computer time but lessons are from books and written work is nicely guided. So far so good!"

    "Truth be told, I was skeptical at first of the idea of a hybrid model school for my child. We are all conditioned to think that attending the public school is the best way, until now. The school in our neighborhood was not very supportive, lacked in many areas, and had 32 children in kindergarten with only 1 teacher and no assistants. It was a difficult last year. I researched this school for about 10 months before we decided to enroll. The time commitment is definitely something the parents need to consider before making this decision. Once you are in, it's work but I can tell you that its worth the time and effort. Our son has been doing so well with this curriculum and is excited about learning more, attending the learning center, and looks forward to special projects. We got a routine now, and he looks forward to the one-on-one sessions, doing science together, math, phonics, language arts, social studies, even history and Art. The k12 material is phenomenal! I can't stress that enough. My child has more material, resources, tools and attention than he ever received at the local public school. The teachers at CVCS are excellent. You don't need a fancy building to LEARN."
