"My daughter used this in high school homeschool and had great success. After completing levels 1-3 and the comprehension trainer, she was able to read spanish classics (simplified slightly for students), understand a native Spanish speaker we know, a.."
"I’m on my third child with this book. Every thing in the title is true except for “Easy”. The last 40 lessons are hard (or long) every time. My middle child needed a lot of extra help and patience learning. I added soon card and a spell to rea.."
A.C.E. Review by Amanda Johnston
"My daughter has been doing Paces for 3 years now. We first started out great, loved it. However things are starting to change for her she is needing more interaction and guidance than I can give. I work full time and I need to get something that f.."
"This site is entirely awful. My mother and I chose it in between grades for mental health problems but it hardly helped due to the fact that it is horribly downgrading and ridiculous. An eighth grader shouldn't be trying to get an education by going .."
"As a current student of SOS I have liked and disliked it at times.I've been using it since middle school and I got 1 more year left and I personally do believe parents should not get this for their kids.It does not give an explanation for a wrong ans.."
"Calvert was great in years past but has completely changed its format and has only become convoluted and cumbersome at best. when i reached out to Calvert with my utter frustration and disappointment they responded with an explanation of how to "nav.."
Explode the Code Review by Melany Nance
"This has been really great for my son in learning how the words/syllables are put together. Critically thinking in the sense of correct spelling for words that are similar, real life or fantasy, etc. Some pictures are hard to make out what it is, but.."
ALEKS Review by Bailey
"It was literally the worst experience of my life, I highly suggest ANY other program, it is time consuming, it has poor explanations, terribly designed, some of the topics are impossible to complete, and you become more stressed out and frustrated th.."
"Update to my November review. Highly inappropriate materials have been removed from the daily assignments, but are still accessable through the curriculum -as the option to click on them pops up after student views other history videos used in daily.."
ABCmouse Review by Dustin Higgins
"I began filling out the registration so we could use this for our 2 yr old son but stopped before submitting anything due to the negative reviews I had read. The reviews that turned me off from going through with registering had to do with the billin.."
"Spelling City does not seem to be free any longer. I used it a few years ago as a free resource, but switched to the paid because I wanted to use the additional features. I do find it is worth the extra $$. My now 10 year old daughter uses it inde.."
"I want to start by saying I have never gotten the chance to use their curriculum, but I do feel pretty familiar with the ethics (or lack) of the company. I ordered a curriculum (costing 172.00) on January 8, 2019. By February 8th I had received nothi.."
Calvert Review by Richard Jones
"My wife and I ...and our daughter, LOVE Calvert homeschool. My daughter has been attending for about 5 years... She is in High School Honors classes and just turned 13. She is doing very well. imagine my disgust this morning to find out, by accident.."
"I don't even know where to start with this. I'm a sophomore who's been homeschooled my entire life and switched to Time4Learning a year ago. I am so very, very less than thrilled. And by less than thrilled, I mean that if I rubbed a magic lamp and a .."
Time4Learning Review by Emily "Emi" Davis
"I am a high school sophomore doing this program for the first time, and I do NOT recommend it! Math was WAY too challenging- my mom, who is a Director of Education and in an honor society, couldn't understand it. Everything else was just plain stup.."
"The negativity in the posts I've read is incredibly inaccurate for LUOA. My oldest son was in a gifted program part of his time in public school but was taught so little that he had issues with Math and English at the college level. My younger son is.."
Time4Learning Review by familyfarmwith7
"This is our second year using this homeschooling program. I really enjoy how easy it is, no prep on my part. I can log in under the parent's account and see exactly what my child did that day. It may not be a full curriculum, but its pretty close. Th.."
Calvert Review by JennyM
"We used Calvert with 2 kids—from kindergarten-7th grade. We tried to order 8th grade today and were told it is now an entirely online curriculum. As inconsistent as their online platform is now for HOmeschoolers, I cannot imagine forcing my kids en.."
"I just wanted to point out, that the Monarch Curriculum that the AOA online is based off, allows for a two week Christmas break, a one week Spring Break, and a few days off per year. Therefore, if the Academy is scheduling every day, your workload i.."
"So grateful for this homeschooling option! Our son has ADHD and struggles with writing by hand. Not only are his quirks a bullying magnet in a public classroom environment, he is also very exasperating for the teachers overwhelmed with oversized clas.."
