Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

It's difficult to get a hold of them sometimes. Since they are "on-line", your child has to email or call the teacher and it's just not the same effectiveness.

We should have listened to someone who told us not to do the on-line school for summer school. They were right. It is the most frustrating experience we have ever been through. It might be doable for one class, but not two summer school classes. If your child is VERY self-motivated and enjoys learning new technology AND has the perseverance to get through the massive amount of content, then this school is for them. My child has diarrhea, stomach aches and headaches everyday from the amount of work that is required, plus trying to navigate around the system. It would be the same amount of work at the brick-mortar school, but you won't have the cutting, pasting, drop-boxing, snipping, going back and forth between lessons to complete assignments among other frustrating things. If your child has a question, he/she can call the teacher who is helpful (if they pick up the phone). We learned our lesson and will never do this again.

I absolutely agree with the first reviewer. If your child needs extra help and is not self motivated, this is not the school for you. I had one child that graduated from Gwinnett Online Campus and did so with honors. My other child however, isn't as motivated to learn on her own and requires a great deal of review. Needless to say my less motivated child was basically kicked out of the school. Or should I say strongly implied that she would not be able to successfully be helped in their environment and suggested I put her back into a traditional school setting even though her grades were a lot better in the GOC than the brick and motor school. (Not passing in all subjects but better) They didn't have the resources to help her achieve and be successful. In other words they gave up.

GOC is an excellent school for students who are motivated students. The rigor of the curriculum is challenging. The administration, and teachers are understanding and willing to work with each family to individually meet the needs of each student. I currently have a child who attends GOC with a IEP and I find the school is superior to a brick and mortar in educating children with an IEP. Smaller class sizes and technology are a benefit of GOC. The added benefit of face to face labs is also a plus to the online setting. Online education is not for every student but for if you have a motivated learner who enjoys learning new technology skills for the 21st century this school may be a perfect fit for your student.

This school is for gifted students only. If your child is exceptionally bright, motivated, and self-disciplined this school would want you to apply. They do not want any children who have special needs, who need extra help to succeed, or require IEPs. The special education chair is quite harsh and has been known to leave parents in tears as he directs them back to a "brick and mortar" school if their special needs child actually needs something. Teachers are good, but have little time or patience for a child that needs extra attention. The school is small and a self selecting group, so the students are calmer, more polite, nicer to one another than in larger "brick and mortar" schools. If you have a high achieving child this may be the school for you. If your child has extra needs, though legally mandated, this school will not help you. Better to go back to brick and mortar or look for a private school.
