Student Success Stories"Thank you VERY much, Mr. Vangalis! As usual, Florida Virtual School continues to exceed my expectations and to earn my highest regard as fabulous educational option for children. You've more than answered my questions, and I appreciate your commitment to your students' education. We value understanding over pace, as well, which is why we choose FVS for our children's secondary education." "Thank you for your recent phone call, I feel very assured that my daughter is doing well and can see (and hear) that she is enjoying your class. This is a very different experience for her, the online setting, but she seems to really enjoy being able to work at her own pace and take time where SHE needs to as well as having time to discuss topics and think things through. This is something she has always disliked, feeling pressured and distracted by the often overwhelming atmosphere in today's classrooms. I was initially concerned that, in taking the class for make-up credit, she would feel discouraged and as if the entire situation was just an additional burden for her. She seems to have none of these feelings and is actually looking forward to the course (s) which she has enrolled in for the Spring 03 session. Thank you again for your input and kind words when we talked and for your encouragement, patience and guidance in working with her. I'm certain we will talk again soon." "Your commitment to communication with your students absolutely astounds my husband and me. We are impressed.""The Florida Virtual School has been and continues to be a most rewarding experience for my wife and I as parents. I am very pleased with your instructional staff. I actually have found myself MORE involved with my son Stephen than when he was in traditional public school." "The teachers at Florida Virtual School have shown outstanding comprehension and compassion for John and it has encouraged him and helped him to move ahead and succeed thus far." "Thank-you so much for the time and personal attention you gave to Isaiah this last school year. Your time and dedication made it possible for him to achieve a good score in his college placement exam." "When Ernie stared at FLVS, he took Life Management Skills. He was so inspired with the modules on healthy eating that he began a personal fitness program. As of this date, he has lost 50 pounds." "Thank you so much for all you did for Jared. For the first time, in a long time, he enjoyed the learning process." "Just a short note to let you know how terrific this class is! The exercises I have seen Chris going through are making the subject very real with applications for every day life experiences."
