"It's not bad online program but i get sick and tired of the million projects and reports you have to do, and it will send you like 5 reports you have to do, they are all due the same day and they give you like a week in advance to get it done, 7 days.."
"Do not, I repeat, do not send your children to LUOA. There are many horror stories about kids (my own included) coming out of this program. The curriculum is horrendous and does not provide much education at all. Every day of every week should have a.."
Calvert Review by Sherry
"We loved Calvert, until they changed their program. Both of my boys were confused at first when learning the new program, but eventually got it down. It’s nothing like the old program and neither is the schooling itself, it’s completely different.."
"This is our first year of homeschooling and we decided to use Oak Meadow as our main curriculum. I think it is great and we are very satisfied with it so far! It is very organized and easy to use and understand. It tells you what materials you might .."
K¹² Review by Robert Rivera
"It's been 2 months and I've been trying to get withdrawal slips & I've gotten hunged up on just because I expressed how frustrating the situation is! One specific African American lady says "I can't hear you" Then hangs up & continues to do t.."
Abeka Review by Stephen Davies
"This is the most honest review you’ll ever read in your life , We are not Christians but still chose this program in fact we started using it back in the early 2000’s and it helped us put three children into universities and two of them now have.."
"My son has autism and has been slower to learn writing and reading. We have waited until this year, his fourth grade year, to do cursive. HWT is amazing. My son always hated to write anything down. He prints very slowly and has struggled with printed.."
Alpha Omega Academy Review by a Senior, Spencer Crow
"I really loved AOA! I graduated this year and the format worked great for me. I was involved in several outside activities. It allowed me to work my studies around my schedule. The Bible based curriculum is set up so you can do lessons at your own p.."
"I used this method with all five of my now grown sons and for my older grandaughter and am coaching a daughter-in-law to use it. The book fell apart after the second child and was hard for little hands to hold, so I made cards of the phonemes and us.."
"We have just finished our first year of homeschool with 7th grade T4L program. Overall I think it helped us to make the leap to homeschooling so it was very valuable. It provided organized content and lesson planners for easy scheduling. According to.."
Calvert Review by Maire B Durkan
"This is followup to a review I posed in June after we withdrew from the sub-par OdysseyWare /Gynlyon monstrosity that Calvert morphed into. We withdrew our daughter, who is in 8th grade, from the horrible curriculum, lost 500.00, and moved on .."
ALEKS Review by Rachael P
"I am in tears as I write this. I'm 30 going back to school. Math is already difficult I have a math learning disability and this program has caused me several break downs in the last month of using it. Its new to our math department, so trying to say.."
K¹² Review by Valerie
"As a special needs parent I was not properly informed by K12 or WAVA what would be expected of my special needs son. The IEP was not reviewed until the onset of school (even though he was enrolled 4 months prior w/ K12). I called for months trying to.."
Abeka Review by Roxy
"I've used Abeka for grade 10 and going on to grade 11. I love the 10th-grade math teacher, I have never loved math except for this year, it's not that the math is easy AT ALL, but the math teacher makes it so easy and interesting to understand. The.."
"BUYER BEWARE. We purchased the 3.0 online subscription for Algebra 2 and have had many days where the website didn't even work because of heavy traffic. TT sold more subscriptions than their system could handle. I called asking for them to send me.."
"Okay, I have a lot to say about Abeka. First off, I want to say that being homeschooled was never my choice. I’ve been homeschooled my whole life.. I used to beg my parents to let me go to “outside school”. I was socially isolated most of my li.."
A.C.E. Review by Natali
"This is my 2nd year using ACE, and we love it so far. I thought kinder was going to be too easy but I think we adults are always trying to make it harder or "more challenging" than it needs to be. I've looked up my state standards and this curriculum.."
ALEKS Review by Ryan
"It is beyond time consuming, especially for students that have to work 30 hours a week to pay rent and for school. If you keep getting answers wrong on a topic, it will make you work on something else but when you finish and get back to what you were.."
IXL Review by Kelly Skoog
"IXL will punish students when they get one problem wrong after many correct answers. They will slip from an 86 to a 65 for one incorrect problem after 15 correct problems of various styles in one unit. Students with any learning disability or ADD/ADH.."
"Since Odysseyware/Glynlyon is accredited through AdvancED and Calvert Academy is accredited through Middle States, bringing your complaints to these accreditation organizations would be helpful. Accreditation requirements are very rigid, and I am su.."
