    Overall Experience: Visions in Education is the best homeschool charter school because of its flexibility between its teachers and students. Teachers and students actually like to spend time together and develop long-lasting relationships. And let's not forget the stipend of $1800 given to students that can be used of educational purposes!

    Overall Experience: I really enjoy this school because of its many different vendors. Through this school I was able to do many unique extracurricular activities such as horseback riding and gymnastics. In addition, our CT was the greatest. She was always on time to our meetings and just about the nicest person. I would definitely go to this school again!
