AAAAAAAA-MAZING! It allows my family to homeschool our daughter, but leads us in doing exactly what she needs to learn in middle-high school by supplying her the textbooks, the weekly assignments, tests, grades, report cards, testing what grade level your child is on (my daughter tested in the top 90% percentile of the nation on all subjects, but 1, math-her one weakness where she makes only b's). Kids graduating from this school almost always get chosen by their first choice colleges. I can honestly say, I have never once had the panic thought that a school shooting would take place here, either, because too many students, parents, teacher friendships happen with every student. Kids aren't fighting, no drugs are going around, no teen pregnancies, etc... Lastly, by her attending school only once a week, it allows us the chance to travel, volunteer, and be more family oriented since our child is with us 90% of the time. My daughter is sick all the time, but by only attending a physical school once a week, she can work on her assignments any time of the day/night nor does it matter what day of the week/weekend her work is done, as long as it's completed when she goes back to school.

Towle School is the ultimate oxymoron; a school for homechoolers. That said, the parent involvement is crucial, as parents are the primary teachers of their students 4 days a week. Once a week students meet for a full day of classes ranging from English to International Crafts to Pre-Calculus. Teachers send home detailed syllabi which parents and students follow throughout the week. The school offers drama, foreign languages, a yearbook, newsletter and other activities, but offerings are not as wide as those of a traditional high school. Challenging, college preparatory curriculum.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
