Virtual school prepares to open in Walpole

K-12 classes offered through the Internet

A new public school opens in East Walpole next month, with freshly hired teachers and administrators, a fully developed curriculum, and a spirited academic mission.

What sets apart the school for kindergarten through 12th-grade students is that none will pass through its doors. Instead, all of the pupils enrolled at TEC Connections Academy Commonwealth Virtual School will take their courses online from home, communicating electronically with teachers based out of the Walpole building.
