“Traveling on a routine basis to compete at state and nation-wide gymnastics competitions was getting in the way of our daughter’s high school graduation. Prior to the summer London Olympics 2012, she was on the road constantly – working hard to make it to the team. She did not this time but we are hoping that she will make it to the 2016 team. She was really disappointed. But what would have made the situation worse was if she had not graduated with her own high school class. But thanks to online high schools like Red Comet, our daughter continued to learn and make progress. And in 2012, she graduated on time from high school making this a memorable year in a different way” said a young and aspiring gymnast’s mother.
