The Keystone School Review by Kristtin Alexander
"This homeschool is nice because the child can progress at their own pace. Its more expensive than other programs though i paid almost 500 dollars for two classes. I would not recommend this class to a child if they have ever struggled with school. Th.."
"This curriculum was very time consuming and boring for my daughter.She found the curriculum very hard and kept failing the tests.So I wouldn't recommend this to everyone.We found our daughter excels in TT rather than CLE..."
Calvert Review by Katherine
"My child was with Calvert from K-9th grade, we loved the challenging coursework and ATS service with the advisory teachers and transcripts. Mid way thru 9th grade we found out Calvert was sold to another company. After many phone calls and poor commu.."
"Where do I start.... No accountability for leadership. Each Director is an independent contractor so no one can actually be held accountable for actions or decisions. Issues were brought to CC Corporate but they did not ever respond because Corpo.."
Calvert Review by Amna Ghous
"My daughters studied with Calvert Curriculum with ATS since KG until Elementary. I was in love with the Curriculum and they learned a lot more than the public schools. The problem came in 2019 when they switched to Online and no manual books etc. I .."
Horizons Review by Sephra
"I used Horizons for my sons kindergarten through AOA and it’s great and he has learned allot and will be going into 1st grade reading by himself. The cons are though that’s it’s allot of paperwork per lesson on phonics 5+pages front and back wh.."
Calvert Review by Sithy M
"I am writing with utter shock at the decision that Calvert made at the last second. Now I am wondering what will happen to the grades of my son’s 7th-grade coursework. When a few weeks left for the completion of year 2018/19, we got a letter with a.."
Calvert Review by Jessica
"Like others we received a letter mid-June that all coursework must be completed by June 28th due to the new system. We were supposed to have until August 1st (when our 12 month period started). It’s absolutely ridiculous! We still had quite a bit o.."
"This school and its support is deplorable. There have been so many issues over the last year that I would strongly recommend if you are looking to have you child attend this institution.To seek their education elsewhere. Unless of course you lik.."
"I have been able to over look the high cost of Teaching Textbooks and the mistakes that pop up from time to time with the curriculum. Sadly, all of that changed about an hour ago. I called TT's customer service number to request help that they have.."
Calvert Review by Denise Vanderbilt
"Bait and Switch! Do not purchase! I have been using Calvert since 2003, and the product being sold today is nothing like the old Calvert that we all knew and loved. Three years ago, Calvert sold out their homeschooling division. It is no longer a.."
A.C.E. Review by Sue Stern-Laird
"I'm using ACE for for my three boys, ages 7, 10, and 15.I would say ACE is okay for kids under third grade, but the upper levels are simply not challenging enough. ACE relies on the same old formula, and varies little in its a.."
Calvert Review by Trisha
"I cannot believe how disappointing and sneaky Calvert Academy was this year. They took our $3600.00 for teacher advisory homeschool through Calvert Academy and guaranteed us a full 12 months of access to Calvert Academy curriculum . Well, in June.."
"We are extremely disappointed with Calvert program this time. The program was all online. This made it easy for studying anywhere that had internet access, but it also made it hard to stay on track of the working progress. Some work needed to be pri.."
A.C.E. Review by Karen
"Pros: Mastery education curriculum is wonderful. It is simple in elementary so by High School, when the curriculum is significantly harder, a solid foundation has been established. Learning to love to learn, and learning beyond what PACEs introduc.."
"Aleks is the empotime of bad math teaching. It teaches you the most basic equation in the most vague way. The system counts right answers as wrong or glitches out entirely.Not only this but should you make even one mistake, it takes a point away.."
Calvert Review by Maire Durkan
"I have been using the Calvert Classic curriculum for 25 years with our 9 children (33-13). Our youngest, who is 13 , just completed the last year of the traditional ATS program. We then enrolled in the new Calvert Academy which is now jus.."
"ALEKS marks answers to problems as wrong. Then, when the correct answer is given, it is EXACTLY what you entered for the answer that ALEKS marked as wrong. Worst math program ever written and used in the history of the world! Avoid ALEKS at all costs.."
"My experience with Alpha Omega was great. The curriculum was great my teachers were amazing, and my coordinator Laci encouraged and pushed me the entire way. I am officially done with school..."
Time4Learning Review by Donald J Haase
