Branson school online is a great online school up to 3rd grade, the teachers K-3 are wonderful teachers and make you feel welcome and make you feel you are a student not a number, Once you pass those grades the school starts going down 4th and 5th grades your student start to hate school but once you reach 6th grade is awful, the Teachers are rude, no helpful at all and they treat you as a number no as a student anymore, they don't care about anything but themselves. The principal is nice until you ask for help then they turned their backs on you. I had 2 girls there and same experience after 11 years with them I had to pull my girls out because I realized we were just a number.

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.
