46,000 students in NC Virtual Public High School
We are providing a 21st century education imbedded with technology, more career and academic choices for students of all ages--and have established a new level of accountability for our teachers and administrators.
Today, 46,000 high school students
are taking courses from the NC Virtual Public School. Teachers are using handheld computers to determine what a child knows, or needs to know, so the child can get the help needed, before falling behind and being unable to catch up.
