Virtual Learning Engages Students Online -- Plus In-Person Learning in Bronxville! In addition to offering engaging, real-time remote instruction and support to students in all locations, FlexSchool is pleased to offer a hybrid learning model featuring in-person instruction at our Bronxville campus.

Enhanced Remote Learning FlexSchool has always offered a robust and engaging Cloud Classroom experience -- and, now we’ve made some exciting upgrades! Below we highlight what students can expect from remote learning this year:
Flexible synchronous learning. Students can have the security of a structured, reliable online schedule, while at the same time having the flexibility to have modified screen time and other accommodations.
Always-on, real-time executive function and social emotional support system. Our tools empower students to take charge of their own success, at their own pace, with as much or as little support as they need.
Remote learning is helping our gifted community stay connected! Jacqui Parr Byrne wrote this really helpful article about how to accommodate IEP/504 students while teaching online.
Our robust, dynamic online learning environment was fully established and thriving years before the Covid-19 epidemic. That’s why, as the rest of the world scrambled to go digital, we were able to seamlessly transition to a rich remote classroom experience on day one.
We know that relationships become even more important during uncertain times. Our caring faculty and staff remain a reassuring presence in our students’ daily lives, conducting our full-day class schedule in real-time, and providing students with the stability, structure and sense of connection they need to feel supported and secure. At the same time, friendships first forged on FlexSchool campuses continue to grow and strengthen in our virtual classrooms.
Every FlexSchool course is already designed to keep our cloud campus students just as engaged as those in the physical classrooms, through multimodal instructional strategies that make learning accessible and exciting -- no matter which way your child learns best.
A cornerstone of the FlexSchool experience has always been FlexFriday -- a weekly opportunity for students to apply their classroom learning to the real world through experiences such as field trips, service projects, hands-on activities and live interactions with professionals in the field. FlexFriday options each week may include:
In-person option: An outdoor opportunity for students to connect in person for fun, hands-on, experiential learning activities, while practicing mask-wearing, social distancing and other protocols.
Virtual option: FlexSchool’s virtual speaker series features exciting activities such as live, guided tours, learning activities, speakers from a variety of fascinating professions and more!
Academic gifts are frequently accompanied by learning and social-emotional differences. Throughout this transition, we’ve continuously provided a safe space where our kids can flourish with the all-day, real-time support of our highly trained staff.
