Five Annoying Things You Won't Have To Face In Online High School

The day-to-day difficulties and challenges of being a high school student today are a definite blight on the progress of high school students everywhere. The impact is so great that many movies and television shows depict these trials and tribulations as dramatic plots. By comparison, an online high school like James Madison High School gives students a distraction-free educational experience. Attending high school online means you'll miss out on football games and school dances, but you'll also miss out on the many other unpleasant experiences that doom students in traditional high schools. For example…

  • Carrying heavy text books all over school: When you’re completing your online study at home, your books are all online. All of your study materials are conveniently located in the same place, so you don’t have to lug them all around or worry you left them in your locker.
  • Unsavory school lunches: Online high school allows you to eat when and where it fits into your schedule. So go out for lunch or make a delicious meal at home because no one is monitoring your attendance.
  • Getting pushed in the hallway between classes: Lots of students mean lots of backpacks bumping in to you as people rush past trying to get to class on time. Rather than risk tripping or getting bruised, online high school lets you take all of your classes sitting safely at the kitchen table.
  • Listening to boring teachers: Zoning out in class is the root of all high school daydream sequences in movies. In real life, a teacher standing in the front of the class speaking in a monotone voice for an hour is enough to make anyone fall asleep. When you’re studying for your high school diploma online, you don’t have to listen to a lecture. If you do need an instructor’s help, you simply send them a message. (And you’ll never be embarrassed by asking what classmates might consider a “stupid” question.)
  • Waiting in the rain for the bus: Waiting in the rain or snow for the bus to come and take you to school is always frustrating. You take your online high school classes where and when it’s convenient for you so you’ll never have to wait for a ride.

Online high school is a convenient and alternative way to earn your high school diploma. Although it isn’t mainstream, neither are you! Do what fits in to your life and will work best for you. And remember: when you study online there is no mystery meat waiting for you, in the cafeteria line!
