Home School Cool

“Every day is different and I like that”, says William who has been homeschooling for over four years. His parents teaches math, science and history at home, during a hike or while traveling. His grandmother is from Austria and teaches him German. For music, computer programming and other subjects, there are many options for homeschool students to attend classes. Plus, it’s a great way to make friends.
