YS Virtual School

An online school for the highly motivated.


YS Virtual School offers a variety of resources for making online learning a fun engaging experience. Currently, we have the following features available with more in development

YS Workshops :  These are a great way to get introduced to new areas of study and gain fresh perspectives on familiar ideas. The typical workshop lasts 90 to 120 mins and uses visual learning tools like simulations, puzzles, animations, activities and more.

YS Courses: For those that require a more rigorous treatment of the study material and desire a structured learning program over a longer duration. These courses provide a guided exploration of concepts beyond the standard curriculum available to students and aid in college preparation..

YS Recordings: Is your timezone is preventing you from attending the scheduled sessions? Don't worry, we record our sessions in HD quality.You can pay and take these sessions at your comfort, along with your family members and sibilings.Parents can accompany the children and supplement their learning.

YS Worksheets & Infographics :  These supplemental materials are crucial to increase the efficiency of learning. The live sessions inspire and provide new avenues for learning, and the infographics and worksheets provide concise explanations and exercises that reinforce the concepts discussed.

YS Facilitators: We draw from a diverse pool of science and technology enthusiasts who pledge to make learning fun and accessible for all! They are funny, simplify complex ideas, make science relatable, and welcome questions from the kids with honest answers. We do not introduce stress in education by enabling competition between students and arbitrary deadlines. Each child learns at their own pace and our goal is to maximise the efficiency of this process without compromising on the joy of learning.

YS Learning Quotient: This comprises a comprehensive set of tools and metrics that give insight and a measure of one’s learning progress. This is meant to motivate the student and track their personal advancement. The efficiency of Learning Quotient relies on the enthusiasm with which the students provide feedback by engaging with the facilitator and the learning tasks provided.

How do you ensure the learning outcome of a student?

Learning is a personal activity and an achievement which cannot be guaranteed by anyone else. We, as educators, can pledge to provide rich learning environments, every opportunity to gauge one’s understanding and resources to supplement one’s knowledge. We aim to teach students how to teach themselves, to become better learners and find joy in this process. The YS Learning Quotient comprises a comprehensive set of tools and metrics that give insight and a measure of one’s learning progress.
