Our children went through the high school. They earned numerous scholarships and completed college degree programs. All are successful in their chosen fields in the job place.

We had 3 students in this school system and though the school is making marked improvements in teaching staff, and gradual improvements in curriculumn alignment, the process has been too slow to benefit most students. Four Blocks: The elementary school utilizes 4 Blocks which largely neglected teaching of phonetics, basic grammar, syntax, and spelling. EDM:The elementary school utilizes Everyday Math which neglected to teach students regular long division (where you end up with a decimal) or handle decimals without converting them to fractions. The EDM method did not teach how to divide a smaller number by a larger one, i.e. 37 divided by 99. Most EDM methods are so non-traditional that parents need the reference manual to teach themselves how to help their student. Our students did o.k. but only because we made sure the limited class choices at the high school level were supplimented with online VHS and/or VLACS classes. Limited extra-curricular activities other than basic sports and student government. There is no active band or chorus at the middle/high level.
