Online learning is a tool in many Rhode Island classrooms. But a charter school opening next fall in Providence takes high tech to a whole new level.
The Village Green Charter School bills itself as Rhode Island’s first virtual learning school. The high school will be located in Providence, near Classical High. Students will spend 60 percent of their time online or in small groups; 40 percent in traditional classroom time. School superintendent Robert Pilkington says applications for the 9th and 10th grade are pouring in.
