The Athlos Distance Learning Experience: Hear it from our Families

Considering distance learning for your students this fall? Read what our Athlos community had to say about their experiences learning from home.

As a school, we recognize that online schooling cannot replace an on-campus experience, but we also value the safety of our students and the hard decisions families must make. Athlos has developed a robust distance learning program with regular virtual check-ins and engaging content for students who are learning from home.

We surveyed Athlos parents and teachers for their thoughts on our distance learning program, what they liked about it, and how we can improve. Here are some of our favorite reviews.

“I love that my daughter can do her schoolwork at our convenience… I love that her teacher had reached out and does Zoom calls three times a week. It gives us some normalcy.”

–Athlos Parent

 

“I love that it is simple for parents to understand. No clicking around on multiple and unfamiliar platforms. Very streamlined. I love seeing my students during the week on videos.”

–Athlos Educator

 

“Zoom class meetings and the teachers recording lessons/story time. I also have been SO impressed with a couple of our teachers who have gone above and beyond dropping things off for the kids and planning special events. It has really helped!”

–Athlos Parent

 

“The teachers are very interactive and make learning easy for students and parents.”

–Athlos Parent

 

“I like how simple the platforms are… They are easy to navigate and user friendly. I love that we get to see our students a few times a week, it is fun to see them and how they are doing.”

–Athlos Educator

 

“The flexibility in lessons being on MWF. Tuesday and Thursday we are taking the time to teach our kids cooking, sewing, woodwork, etc. Teacher response times to emails are quick.”

–Athlos Parent

 

“Love the amazing effort the teachers are putting into creating creative content for the kids to continue to learn despite not being in the building. We also love the Zoom class sessions with their teachers. They still get to see their classmates and have the teaching time with their teachers.”

–Athlos Parent

 

“The fact that we can share the different recordings of classes among the various teachers and the live sessions so we can see the kids.”

–Athlos Educator

 

“I love how they provide a laptop to those who did not have a device. I also love how they can video chat with their teacher.”

–Athlos Parent

 

“The students are able to work on school at any time. We are available to help as necessary, and we have opportunities to video chat with our students two times a week.”
