New Virtual School Coming to Washington County

"We are very excited. We're creating the Washington County Virtual Works combining gaming technology with common core curriculum and creating new courses," said Dr. Clayton Wilcox, of Washington County Public Schools.

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Md. - Its education gone virtual!

"We are very excited. We're creating the Washington County Virtual Works combining gaming technology with common core curriculum and creating new courses," said Dr. Clayton Wilcox, of Washington County Public Schools.

Operating from Western Heights Middle School in Hagerstown, this innovative approach to education will offer students a world of programs stressing science, technology, engineering and math. 

"We're building course ware with a virtual concept. Kids can take it from anywhere when we are done with it. They could be at home and taka it in their pajamas if they wanted to," said Cox.

Students are excited about what this virtual program will bring to their future as well as what it will bring to other students' futures.

"I think it's cool because I'm very interested in technology," said Marcel Campbell II, a student at Western Heights Middle School.

AT&T contributed $25,000 to the new virtual school.
