It all comes down to the student. If they are keen to learn and want to make something of themselves, regardless of what school they go to whether it's online, at home, private or public, they will do well academically or at least try their hardest. Of course, in schools it's much easier to get distracted, get bullied, etc. I don't think it's fair to measure someone's intelligence on what school they go to - I know plenty of kids that go to public schools that are smart as hell, but either don't have the opportunties to move school due to expenses or because they like the friends they have at their current school.
