Visions in Education is an excellent option for those who struggle in the traditional school setting. We never thought that our son would take the initiative that he's taking to finish his assignments. He also receives more one-on-one time with his teacher than he ever did at his other high school. Considering Visions? It's worth checking out!

I could not be happier with Visions! Our CT is a wonderful man who cares about the education our children are receiving. I've had no trouble getting the materials we need and my children are thriving in the home-school environment.

Visions has been nothing short of awesome for a first time, homeschooling parent like myself. My daughter is twice-exceptional (gifted with special needs) and Visions has accommodated us well, allowing us to tailor her education to suit her intellectual needs while providing for her special needs as well. Having to commit to CA standards seems confining at first but we quickly discovered that there are ways to meet standards while still providing a quality, interest led education. The staff and our teacher having been extremely helpful when we've had questions and have provided us with the guidance we've needed to make this work. I've been able to switch curriculum as I need to when it doesn't suit my daughter's style or needs with no issue. I'd recommend Visions to anyone that would like extra support while enjoying many of the freedoms of homeschooling.

This is a great school program for college bound children and children needing supervision. For those who will go going to college it allows them the opportunity to fine tune their organizational skills now rather than latter. For toes needing supervision it is up to the parent to do that but on a week by week bases even the most unorganized student can pull it together. This is a great program but parents MUST be involved.

Terrible school as it is disappointing to say so, the vice principal was VERY rude as soon as a child gos downhill from this school they leave them for the dogs, the schools money hungry and they don't want students that need help they want students who pull As all year, again they leave the others for the dogs, very dissipointed in this school, the teacher was nice hence the second star. It's a shame.

This school is what I needed where we last lived. Public school were too over crowded for my opinion and private schools were just asking too much money. Here at VIE my children got to learn in ways that I know they would understand like hands on and take numerous field trips to show how things work. Our CT is the best, she constantly gives us the best advise and is always there when needed.

We looked into charter schools after our local elementary school suffered a violent shooting! As concerned parents, we wanted the best and safest education for our child. We found it thru Visions! The school staff, program, and overall has been amazing. Yes, they do push CA state standards, but I have found this very helpful so that I know my child is learning with her peers at the same grade level. I simply plan my lessons around the requirements. We also love the froup classes and events. Our teacher is priceless! Our child also participates in the speech therapy program as well and is improving after just a few visits. We love Visions!

I rate is four stars because Visions worked for me. The school is quite independent. I went to a little more than half of my junior year and my senior year there and I somewhat enjoyed it. My teacher was friendly and nice. It was quite independent and that's the negative thing about it. Also the academic sense was quite easy, not challenging as it should of been I think. I really did like the fact that I was in a family environment rather than a public school since i didnt like the degradation of students. Visions worked okay. I wouldn't say its really above average but I wanted to work and end school earlier and that exactly what Ive done! Graduation this summer! Thank you Visions!

We love this school and have so much fun. My daughter who is in K this year surpassed all the standards. We even got to pick out own curriculum. The only drawback is that they push to make sure we home-study families abide by CA. standards so much that it cramps my lesson plans. Out teacher was easy to relate to and to the point .All other staff we have dealt with have made things very easy and organized.

Visions has been fantastic for our family! We are a homeschool family turned charter and are not looking back. The support you get from the staff is wonderful, I've never been given the feeling that they are there just for the paycheck. All of the staff takes pride in their school, and that means a lot to the students and their families. In addition you are able to work your child on THIER level, not the one that someone set for them. I have one child who is GATE and works about 3 grade levels, another that is 'behind' due to some illnesses and they are both still loving their school. They don't feel the peer pressure that other schools have and they really are able to just enjoy learning. If you are even just thinking about a charter or HS you should check our Visions, you'll be glad you did!!!

Visions is a great school. My boy's have been attending Visions since last school year and I have seen an improvement in their grades and GPA. Their teacher is awesome. She works with them one on one with their school work. I highly recommend Visions if you are looking for a good Charter school.

The charter school experience has been wonderful for my daughter. She has been attending since Kindergarten, and it is a great opportunity for us to explore all that homeschooling has to offer while still taking advantage of some of the standardized curriculum used by her home school district.

My granddaughter went from 8th grade at Barrett Elementary- which from personal experience kept the bad element in and pushed the good element out to Visions for education. Visions supplied her with everything she needed to succeed in the academic world. Her teacher works with her on a one on one. Parent participation is a must. Don't get me wrong, she has plenty of studies to keep her oocupied. The only thing she is missing is the social life of a regular High School.scale of If your student is lucky Miss Ellis will be their teacher. Miss Ellis is very dedicated to teaching and also lifting self esteem which I feel is the main cause of failure in schools today.

I was a student at this school, and my teacher was very absent minded! Lost my work and I often had to do it over! I hated visions. I will never reccomend it for anyone!

Visions In Education has been wonderful for my daughter. We pulled her out of her high school after problems with the teachers. She is getting a much better education now. Her grades are higher and she is so much happier! She is starting college classes this fall.

Visions Independent Study High School is great! My son will graduate from Visions this year. This is our first year with Visions and I' wish that I had done this sooner. Our son is more focused and works great with no distraction unlike traditional school settings. Visions has given him a computer to work with and contact his teacher whenever he needs to. This school is awesome and I'm so glad we're involved in it. I'm constantly bragging about Visions and they are always available to talk with you or they will call you back in ample enough time to work out your problem. The counselors are much better than the traditional high school we dealt with for three years. Thanks Visions, keep up the good work!

I have recommended this school to so many parents. Parents with discipline problems, parents with smart kids who are bored in public school, parents with kids who have extracurricular activies like acting, dancing or sports, that don't have enough free time to do homework. Many students can benefit from this awesome program. Instead of spending most of your classroom time doing unproductive things like grading other students papers and waiting for the teacher to take role, through 6 classes....you now use that time to actually work and learn. Also, my son and daughter are diagnosed with ADD. This makes it difficult for them to learn with distractions, (paper airplanes flying around, kids talking about things other than the subject at hand, teachers talking about their lives instead of the lecture) home school alows your child to consentrate on the important things and get a good education.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
