Great school...if you want your kids goofing off online and looking at porn all day. My kid earned ONE HALF of a credit all year. After all the arguments, he told me they would use "proxy" sites and surf wherever they wanted...and nobody cared. Occasionally kids got kicked out, but THEY DO NOT MONITOR YOUR KIDS ONLINE. The first time it was brought to my attention about only having a half credit was two weeks before school was out.
My daughter does not fit in with traditional schools. She has ADHD and Aspergers and keeping up with all of the directives was tough. At Mountain Rose, she stays on track, gets the work done at her pace and passes her classes. I closely monitor her work and it is not easy. She is forced to read, write papers, and go through and learn lots of material. It is a perfect solution for her unique challenges. It is an outstanding solution for kids that need an alternative setting for school.
I am a student in mountain rose academy, I've been in and out of schools not because i was a tourble maker but because I WAS NOT HAPPY at all. All my others just didnt understand me AT ALL. i was in a point of giving up and droping out but my mom made me go to mountain rose if i wasnt underage i wouldnt of came, but i was glad i did. the students there dont bother me, the teachers never leave your side untill you understand. the best part is that you get to pick a time to come in. the times are 7am to 12pm, 12pm to 5pm, 5pm to 10pm... if you are unhappy in a normal school then maybe this school is for you..the only thing left to say is.... THIS SCHOOL IS AWESOME!!!!!!
The reason I love Mountain Rose High School, is because we moved to Tucson, Az., 3 years ago and my son who was then 16, really had no interest in school. I was determined that he should get his high school diploma and found this high school. The interest that the teachers take in the students is amazing. My son's attitude towards school changed and even though he was seriously behind in his studies, the teachers motivated him so much that he finished high school at the time that he should have. This was even with his father passing away, a few months before graduation. What is my son doing now? He is attending Pima Community College and will be getting his Associates Degree next year in BioChem and he is hoping to get accepted into the UofA premed program. All this from a teen who hated school and had gotten behind. Thank you Mountain Rose for motivating my son and making him believe that he could do it!!! I am forever in your debt.
