School Reviews

  • Recommended June 01, 2012 - My daughter has improved 3 math grades in one year. Wonderful teacher involvement for an online school. The only public online school to get passing grades on coloradoschoolgrades.com. The student teacher ratio is low too compared to other online schools. The big ones have nice advertising because theyre a big business look at the statistics here. This is a small school with caring teachers and great support. They spend their money on educating your child not advertising to get more students. - Posted by Parent

As a result, House democrats have taken up the issue in a new bill that would ban all forms of corporal punishment nationwide.
