    "My children entered PAVCS in 4th and 5th grades. Elementary, intermediate and middle school were wonderful! High School was another story. It was unorganized, teachers and administrators did not follow the diamond model. The scholars program was a nightmare. Had an administrator yell at my husband and myself in a conference, while our child was sitting in the room. Very unprofessional, and the kid was in shock listening to an administrator act so inappropriately. The principal was clueless to what was happening, When listening to a live class, 35 minutes were spent on "housekeeping issues" and not instruction. Totally unacceptable! Paid for a year book last year and still have not received it. Because we left the school we lost access to sapphire so never got a final report card, requested through FSC, Principal and with administration over summer, still have not gotten a report card even though I was promised after learning we had no access to sapphire we would get one. Have no idea how my child did on her Keystone exam last year. Totally disgusted. No problems ever encountered until High School. We took all 3 kids out, and are very happy at another cyber school."

    "I am a senior at PA Virtual. I have been with this school since 2002. Although it's had it's ups and downs I believe that PA Virtual is an all around good school. Most of the teachers care about the students, the staff attempts to help work around your schedule. Now, the asynchronous model this year is very biased and might have the school lose more funding, some may excel in one subject, but have another hold them back and then they are stuck in 90 minute classes all day. The classes are too close together, so the student is on the computer all day which is NOT healthy for the student or teacher.The school's problem is funding and they're always trying new things which isn't always great. Two years ago the school was working great, but now it's starting to turn. Hopefully if the school gets more money they can turn it back around."

    "Pa Virtual is pretty neat! We have a variety of courses, good teachers, and interesting videos made to inspire us. PAVCS needs funds in order to improve, we need more teachers and courses (we've had to cut some of both because of lack of funding), but I like the teachers that we have. Some of them are really cool."

    "I started this cyber school since I was in Kindergarten, I've always loved it, the teachers, students the class setup. I could be open in the class room, the teachers were always supervising what was being said and it helped so no big arguments started. A thing I would like to change is that we get more funding so we can become even better (more teachers, more outings etc..) I'm in my junior year now and I still enjoy this school."

    "The 2013-2014 school year will be our first at PAVCS. Since registering in March, everyone including the enrollment team, health team, placement team, ambassador team, family support team, and teacher has been responsive and helpful. In fact I chose this school over another one in PA using the same K12 curriculum due to the lack of responsiveness and poor communication skills on the part of the other school."
