Time4Learning Review by Mia Bandini
"I'm not a parent i'm a student and let me tell you, do not use this program it is EXTREMELY outdated, like early 2000's type. The animation they use is on the verge of terrifying. The curriculum sucks. You can't save your writing assignments, so if y.."

"We are currently using TT3 online for our 2nd grader. He loves it and I wish it was available when I was his age. I might actually have enjoyed math!Here's what my son says, "I like how they give you multiple tries. What I don't like is the Bonus.."

Spectrum Review by Leanne
"I piece my son's homeschool curriculum together. We don't care for the other Spectrum subjects much but we do LOVE Spectrum math. I've tried almost everything when it comes to math and Spectrum has been our constant for the past 2 years. I didn't .."
"I use ACE math. It is definitely slower pace it works well for kids that need the slower pace math. Also the kids can test out of the pace and move on to the next if it is too easy. So people who are saying that they pace was too easy then have th.."
Time4Learning Review by Michael Close
"Time4learning has a nice presentation, reporting, parent reports, etc, and looks like it will be a great program for learning. The fatal flaw is that the video pesentations CAN NOT BE PAUSED, or REWOUND 10 SECONDS to allow notetaking.My student.."
"We've been homeschooling for 10 years and this is our first year using an online curriculum. We've never used a boxed curriculum, either. We mostly unschool in the early years. Then we used Life of Fred for mathematics, Story of the World for hist.."

The Keystone School Review by Really wish I stayed in public school
"I had to get taken out of public school due to severe depression and anxiety. This was the worst decision ever. It will suck every bit of money you have all just to have a very uninteresting and confusing as crap assignments and tests. The quizzes ha.."
"We are using the Spectrum - Grade 3 and Math Word Problems books. The Grade 3 book, has simple 1-2 page lessons in the ELA and Math sections, that make it easy for my son to catch on to the concept. The Reading section breaks down stories into manage.."
"What I liked about this school was only the open schedule, other than that I would NOT reccomend this school to anyone else. The teachers are not invovled with students unless, If any it took them double the time it should to respond to a simple emai.."
Calvert Review by Aletha Parent
"I loved Calvert. I homeschooled my daughter from 1st grade thru 7th grade using their ATS and Calvert's curriculum of books and online resources. It was such a warm, loving experience. And went corporate. They sold out to a cold corporate .."

Calvert Review by Vanessa
"We started our Homeschooling journey in fall 2018. We used it for 2nd and K. I liked the interface but the books provided were overpriced through Calvert. They could have been purchased for half the price on amazon.It was very English heavy.."
Calvert Review by Stacey Artinian
"I have used Calvert for my two children for the past three years. This year will be my last with them for many reasons. Partly because our educational needs have changed but mostly because Calvert is unrecognizable from when I started using it. I sta.."
ALEKS Review by Sandy
"My daughter just started in Aleks at the end of last month. She is rapidly progressing and all her knowledge checks show her growing. This program is no more expensive than other good ones are. She seems to like it b/c she does not like much fluff.."
