This program is nothing short of horrendous. The teachers are uninterested and rather unprofessional. When I'm in contact with a teacher regarding my student's work, I expect proper spelling, grammar, and a timely response, not to mention a direct answer to my question! These teachers don't seem to be slightly interested in the success of individual students and make no effort to reach out at any point. Aside from the lack of professionalism and drive I've experienced with the teachers, the actual computer program is practically useless. It is convoluted and unorganized with a disjointed layout that no teacher, administrator, or counselor seems to be able to navigate effectively. We've experience consistent technological issues in which my student would submit her work and the teachers would be unable to access it. Instead of reaching out when individual assignments were "late", the advisor contacted me days before the quarter deadline. I had assumed it was simply another case of lazy teachers taking excessive time to grade work, but none of them contacted myself or my student individually to address a problem. Unprofessional, uninterested, unorganized. Removing my student.

We started at George Washington University Online High School a year ago when our daughter enrolled in 9th grade and this year our son enrolled in their new Middle School. The teachers are genuinly interested in having the students succeed academically as well as personally. Our daughter went on one of their field trips and loved it. We are feeling part of the school community. This is the best online option we could have hoped for to help our kids excel while being prepared for success later in life. Even though the school is still relatively young (they had their second graduating class in the spring of 2013), they have experienced and well trained teachers and staff that are eager to help parents as well as students.

This school is incredible. I can't imagine a better option for those looking to do online schooling. So many options are available for courses and even clubs. Teachers/staff are always available for contact and are eager to help students should they be struggling in any way. This type of school system also makes it entirely possible to graduate and go to a great college like any other student in a "normal" school environment. Definitely an incredible experience and so worth it.

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.
