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.."
"Teaching Textbooks has been a Godsend for our second homeschooled teenager. When my kids were little the older one used Saxon and the younger one used Horizons. Both are hands on, challenging, and very thorough and easy to use and I recommend both o.."
Calvert Review by Maria Cecilia Gonzalez-Graves
"Like many of you, we were caught in Calvert’s unexpected, short-notice changes as they moved to their new platform. Our son has been with Calvert since the 3rd grade. He was almost finished the 8th grade when we got notice of the platform changes i.."
Abeka Academy Review by Payton Burdine
"I have used Abeka Academy for my entire school life. Abeka is a great program for those wanting to prepare their children for the real world. It includes challenges and the teachers push you to do the best work you can do. Each assignment has a detai.."
Calvert Review by christel astin
"Calvert was bought out by another company? I was not aware and have been getting the runaround for months regarding the "new platform" which they decided to inform us 2 weeks prior to June 28, 2019. We bought the curriculum in late February of 2019.."
"It seems that many of you have shared the same frustrations about Calvert/Glynlyon. It would be a good idea to contact your state attorney general and BBB about this company. If we all band together, we might be able to get some of our money back. .."
ALEKS Review by Tori
"The Worst way to ever learn math. Especially if it is something you struggle with already. The system does not thoroughly teach you things. You only get up to 5 times to truly “learn” something. They take away points if you get something wrong wh.."
"I love AOA! My middle son, developed health issues the were impairing his ability to attend the private Christian school he was previously enrolled in and then we found AOA> That was five years ago and I am happy to say that he attended AOA 8th-12.."
"Time 4 Learning is a great program to get you started quickly in homeschooling. I feel the material (when used correctly) is a complete curriculum with very little supplementation needed.After a couple of year of using this program and feeling m.."
ALEKS Review by Chuck
"There seems to be a lot of students who find ALEKS frustrating - but our son loves it. Here's our experience - We use ALEKS as a REVIEW tool, not a primary learning tool. Our son is mildly gifted in math (in 7th grade and just finished 9th Grade Alge.."
Calvert Review by Shelly
"Like others have mentioned I would be interested in a lawsuit as well. I was sold a product knowing I wouldn’t be able to use it. Please report to BBB and let’s get this company in trouble.Can anyone tell me the research that has been done f.."
"Terrible experience when the company was bought out by Glynlyon/Odysseyware this past summer. We had been loving the old Calvert Academy, but with the big company buyout, all the great things Calvert was known for are gone. They have been horrible .."
"Students were totally left in the dark - no support. A certified letter should of been sent to all families enrolled in this program - very sneaky and poorly handled..."
