Brooklyn Schools join Virtual High School program

E.B.C. High School is one of 8 high schools in Brooklyn where students take some classes through virtual high school, or V.H.S., as part of a pilot program.

V.H.S. Is a global network. Students at client schools share projects with students from other countries. They post their thoughts about what they are learning.

The involvement of the Brooklyn schools is financed through a federal grant, and aimed at schools that need to improve student achievement. The investment will be evaluated after this school year, but V.H.S. says their website gets results.
