IVS Summer Courses posted a 96% Student Success Rate!

Illinois Virtual School isn’t successful unless our students are successful. The numbers have been finalized from the Summer 2016 terms, and IVS students have reach a 96% success rate! That means 2,088 students earned a 60% or higher in their IVS Summer Course. We would like to congratulate all of our successful students who have displayed the motivation and dedication it takes to learn online. We would also like to thank the parents and local schools that work to keep their students motivated, and the IVS teachers who work tirelessly to ensure their students’ and Illinois Virtual School’s success!
