Our Experience with Primavera
How This Online Pioneer Changed Education
Students Who Benefit
What types of students attend an online high school? The answer may surprise you. Geographically, 75 percent of Primavera's students are located in Phoenix area with other student populations representing the smaller cities of Tucson and Prescott. A significant part of the school's student population also resides in rural areas. The reasons students choose Primavera are just as varied. Whether it is a desire for accelerated learning or in response to bullying, overcrowded classrooms, behavioral issues or a life changing event - every student has something in common - the demand for an alternative quality education.
Teachers With A Common Philosophy
Primavera also boasts of an excellent roster of teaching professionals, each highly qualified and accredited by the State of Arizona. In fact, 73 percent of the school's teachers have a Master's degree or higher and each receives extensive training and ongoing professional development. Many have extensive classroom experience but were drawn to Primavera's online model because of the unique teaching benefits it offers. Each enjoys the extensive personal contact they have at Primavera and many credit the school's educational philosophy as a key factor in their choice to teach online.
Inspirational Academic Choices
Many of today's brick and mortar high schools offer a selection of academic courses that may be limited by budget, space or teaching expertise. Primavera overcomes these obstacles to provide students with a selection of hundreds of courses, from general education requirements to exciting electives, each in alignment with national standards. Students receive meaningful personal attention from experts in the field in variety of subjects in an engaging environment that inspires lifelong learning.
