WVL is the best!! The teachers and support staff were very responsive to questions and concerns we had throughout the school year. My daughter struggled with time management and her advisor went the extra mile by walking her through different methods and tips on how to stay on track and successfully complete her assignments on time. The program itself is also very well designed to allow the students to learn at their own pace, while also providing enough structure to stay on pace. Lastly, the school counselor was supportive and patient in helping my daughter with making her after graduation plans along with suggesting different college choices. Wisconsin Virtual Learning is a top notch educational choice.

WVL has been a great experience for both my children. They have learned to be independent and organized. It has been a blessing to not have my kids exposed in the typical drama that often arises with peers in HS. I would recommend WVL, especially for those who don’t do well in situations of peer pressure.

WVL is an almost perfect hybrid between homeschooling and brick and mortar school. The staff and teachers work with parents and students to customize an educational experience that works for the individual child. If you are not quite ready to school on your own, this gives you the confidence to work to educate YOUR child, knowing that there is a team waiting to help the both of you. WVL rocks, and we know --as we have been with them for more than a decade!

I absolutely recommend WVL to the families who have children who struggle with traditional in person schooling. My daughter was bullied in third grade and again in sixth. She started online schooling and has excelled. Once she entered High School we found WVL in 7th grade It has been a true blessing. WVL invests in the kids futures by offering courses that give them the opportunity to explore possible careers. Our SLA Melissa W. has been a 😇 in her corner, we will miss her she was a friend and guide when we needed her.. Ashley Graduates this Saturday and a so grateful for all the support and kindness ALL of her teachers and support staff have given to us and her over the past four years!!!!! Thank You WVL!!!

My daughter starting with WVL in Sophomore year of high school, because she was being bullied at her normal school and was also dealing with some mental health issues. Thankfully WVL was willing to adjust to her needs. The very personal touch of having a student liaison that checks in with her weekly, the other teachers that very frequently reached out to make sure she was doing well all helped to contribute to a great experience for her. She is now graduating high school in a few days! Thank You WVL!!!
