Spectrum School, an independent, progressive school offering the regions first self-directed high school, has become an Illinois Virtual High School member.
Spectrum students can now take a variety of courses offered through the Illinois Virtual High School. All awarding of credit is done through Spectrum.
The Illinois State Board of Higher Education administers the Virtual High School. Certified teachers, trained in online learning strategies and tactics, teach IVHS courses.
Spectrum School, established in 1967, serves just fewer than 200 students ages 3-14 from Rockford and surrounding areas. Guided by the principles of multiple intelligences, active participatory learning, and an arts-integrated curriculum, Spectrum has received accolades for developing a conscientious program and integrating the study of all major academic studies. Spectrum School is recognized by international educators as a foremost example of progressive education, focusing on the intellectual, social and emotional growth of the individual and his/her development as a lifelong independent learner.
