ALEKS Review by Da'Myra Ashe
"This system is the worst math system that I have ever used. I can use the same numbers that ALEKS used and get the same answer that it got just by using a different method and it would still get counted wrong because it wasn’t done in the form that.."
A Beka Review by Sherri Huddleston
"We used strictly A Beka curriculum for homeschool. We have been told it is a lot of work, however it is worth the "work." I highly recommend A Beka. My son graduated from A Beka Christian Academy. My children are now in college thanks to t.."
"This program is hard to read and digest. It is not organized in a manner that flows. I especially don't like that the teacher is expected to read it like a "storybook, word for word". If someone needs such a restricted script, he/she shouldn't b.."
Sonlight Review by Mommaof3monkeys
"This is our first year using Sonlight for both of our boys (2nd and 4th). We definitely love the curriculum. We use D&E level in history for both boys, science D for both, L/A D&E for my 4th grader, and L/A 3 for my 2nd graders. Their books s.."
"My daughter is currently enrolled in 11th grade. She took one college class over the summer. So far, we have been pleased with the curriculum. By far, better than the public school system. We just wish the classes were by weeks like the college c.."
"I highly recommend staying away from this program. That is, unless you want to spend a ton of time(wasted time) trying to figure out how to use it, want your child to be bored, enjoy unnecessary repetition, have 8 solid hours a day to commit, have n.."
K¹² Review by Andrew
"K12 is only interested in your money. I withdrew my daughter before the start of term and they confirmed in writing that I wouldn’t be charged a monthly fee. They continued charging a monthly fee and are now non-responsive. Filing a claim with t.."
A Beka Academy Review by Mary Helen Coble
"I am halfway through my first high school semester and I think that this program is great for me. I love having the freedom to watch the videos at my own pace, work ahead, and rewatch lessons whenever I need to. The only thing I would not suggest is .."
"Classical Conversations assumes rote memorization needs to come before conceptual knowledge. After thorough research and a come-and-see, we decided this would not be a good fit for us. Don't get me wrong -- I myself was homeschooled and memorized the.."
"I used Calvert Kindergarten-5th Grade. We are in our 5th Grade year now. I have witnessed the steady decline of Calvert over the last three years. They changed their format to a more online presence. It used to be a nice blend of books and online. I .."
A Beka Academy Review by Jennifer Whitten
"My daughter has used Abeka curriculum her entire academic life. Her Christian school used it and when she started homeschooling in the forth grade we continued using it. We love it because it is thorough. She uses the DVDs and she can back them up if.."
"After spending some time in alternative placements, my daughter needed help getting ready to return to her private school with her peers as a junior. AOA worked with us to get her set up for successfully earning 6 credits over the summer. As an educa.."
BJU Press Review by Henry Mills
"While the books provide good information, the overall program is unnecessarily complicated for each subject. A program like K12 is superior in its design and execution of schooling. BJU may be Christian but I would not recommend it to other people, b.."
"We are on our second year using Acellus (now called Power Homeschool) and despite some bumps in the road we adore this program. We use it as a complete curriculum and it's short lessons are well suited for my son who has Tourette's and ADHD. His re.."
ABCmouse Review by Felix Krym
"First, I haven't seen enough educational value for my child given the monthly cost of membership. I'm also concerned that I recently found out that the owner and CEO, Doug Dohring, is a respected member of the dangerous cult of Scientology and funnel.."
"I used the Primer series (Get Ready, Set, Go...for the Code: A, B, C). My K student was struggling to remember letter names & sounds, and this was a great phonics supplement to our main program. There was a lot of handwriting practice, sometimes .."
"I thank it gets 5 stars because when there was a problem customer service was great and fast response..."
Alpha Omega Monarch Review by Kristen J Blaylock
"We used Monarch for a few months, and while I love the content, and the format, there is not nearly enough options for review of the material. There needs to be more games, or flashcards from previous lessons available outside of the lessons. I found.."
Apologia Review by abby@4onemore
"After using the God's Design science curriculum with multiple ages together in our homeschool, I needed a high school level course for my 9th grader last year. We used the Apologia Biology course and it was terrific! It is definitely a college prep .."
"We are new to Alpha Omega Academy (AOA) and as a parent with a son entering into high school; you do not want to mess things up nor fail them because high school counts. I researched many options before choosing AOA (other online schools, part time h.."
