Over the past decades, technology made it possible to do basically everything online. You can work, shop, pay your bills, and even have a college degree without setting a foot outside your door. Imagine having to study whenever you want – that is the dream!
Today, many schools offer online courses even for high school students. Online learning this early may sound ridiculous for some but there are a lot of things and factors that make this more convenient than traditional schooling.
You would not believe that at this time and age, bullies have gone extinct already but sadly, no. High school is a difficult time for teenagers and bullies make it feel even more like hell. Online schooling has no place for bullies. It creates a “more peaceful environment” that is more conducive to learning.
No peer pressure
High school students still get to socialize despite the increased time spent online. Only this way, they speak to their mentors and classmates virtually, i.e. phone calls, online classes, and chatting. It will keep them grounded too as they will not feel as much pressure on keeping up with the latest trends like fashion or house partying every weekend.
No specific time frame
Probably one of the best things about online schooling is freedom! Like working online, students get to study and learn no matter how fast or how gradual they want it to be. They are not forced to wake up at five in the morning, nor to study Math from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM. In some cases, students are actually able to finish their courses in a shorter span of time than with traditional schooling. More time for vacation, yeah?
No tuition fees
This is true for SOME schools that offer online high school courses. Some can come at a more pricey level, but either way, they can assure you of a hassle-free enrollment system with programs perfect for teenagers.
Each education system has its own pros and cons. With all these things mentioned, plus a little discipline, students will surely have the best high school “phase” anyone could have.
