What are your experiences with online high school science classes?

I'm thinking of taking some of my science classes online next year due to scheduling conflicts. Can anyone share their experiences with online high school science classes? Did you feel like you learned as much as you would in a traditional classroom?

Hello there! My child took an online biology course during their junior year. They were initially skeptical about missing out on the hands-on lab experience, but the course was well-structured with virtual labs and interactive simulations. My advice would be to ensure the online class has a strong support system – access to the teacher for questions and a good peer community for discussions. Even though it's online, active participation is key to absorbing the material. They ended up performing well on their AP exam, which showed the course's effectiveness. I'd say go for it, especially if it helps with your schedule!
