Fly through Classes
- The best part about online school is that you can go your own pace. If you get your work done early, you go to your next class.

Biology in Pajamas
- I like being able to do what I want when I want, to an extent. If I get frustrated I have the freedom to get up and walk away for a while. It's also nice to be able to work in my pjs ; )

Long but fulfilling
- I love taking classes online way better than when I had to go to school. I get to sleep in until 10. I have to log in to the school system everyday, but I can pretty much take however long I want with my assignments. I hated having to wait for everyone to catch up in regular classes! Math is kind of hard without a teacher though. Then I do a ton of stuff on my own like volunteering with kids and learning how to cook!

Boring until 3:00 pm
- Mostly my day is boring until my friends get out of school. My parents said that online high school would be "harder" but it really only takes me a couple hours in the morning to do my work. Then I read stuff online until my friends get out of school.
