I pulled my two children from our local 'Excellent' school because they were getting failing grades, while their OAT scores were above (often WELL above) average. There were constant issues with discipline, and a disturbing lack of any support from the public school teachers or principal. IT was always the children's fault for not meeting the expectations. After a quarter at ECOT, their grades are nearly 100s in all subjects, and my daughter finally doesn't feel like she is too stupid to do math. I can track what they are doing constantly, and I can intervene to make sure they can 'catch up' where they've missed or forgotten something, and enrich the program where their interest lies. And not one teacher has ever told me they don't have time to work with my child because they have too many other students.
I am a student at this school and highly recommend it to anyone considering k-12 online schooling. I am able to graduate a year early and take challenging courses that suit my needs. You can either use their computer that they give you or the computer you use normally. I use my own computer as I like to use Google for more information if I want it, and can talk to my friends on instant messenger while doing homework. The teachers are all very nice and respond to my messages swiftly. When I was in public school my grades were poor because I was distracted. Now I have A's.
This school is horrible. Computer never works. Always have to have them replace it, there system is always down, needs lots of improvements.
Flexible, professional, challenging. Great teachers who get back to you very quickly.
This is our first year at ECOT and we are more than pleased! The education is excellent and I am able to see exactly what my children are learning. The teachers are very helpful and plan interesting lessons so the children are not doing the same old thing everyday and every week. I wish I would have taken them out of public school earlier.
My kids grades have gone up and so has there confidence. I do not regret pulling my kids from there public school and putting them into this program. I have 2 kids that need special education and the staff here are fantastic in seeing that we have everything we need. There is constant parent teacher communication and they are always there to help when needed. I would recommend this program to anyone who is thinking about putting there child into a program like this.
My four children have been at ECOT for two years. I am not impressed. Quality of their programs is mediocre. Availability of extracurriculars is minimal. Level of parent involvement is dependent upon each parent. Teacher involvement is minimal. This year has been a worse experience than last. High school teachers are assigned 200 students per semester! No wonder they can't keep up with grades or messages. We're looking for a new option next year.
It is an excellent school for any age student. They are also very good for special needs students. They have an excellent program.
I am a student at ECOT. I was going to drop out of my other school since I became pregnant and the teachers and students at the other school were harrassing me constantly. I just wanted to give up. I ran across ECOT. It has been great! I am now getting all A's and B's and I also have moved up a grade. I am doing very well in my classes. The academic programs are great. The classes are still a little difficult but not too bad. It's not taking the easy way out. The work is just like in regular school. There is a high need for parental involvement. You can space you time out how you need to. Teachers require check-ins weekly, and you must turn in work on weekly-basis. I recommend this school to anyone struggling in public schools. Their is also a guidance counselor for everyone.
I am a student enrolled in this school. I've been in this school for 4 years know I love this school and i would rather work with ECOT then go to a school to deal with the harassing and all the other garbage that goes on at a school. I have always had timely responces from teachers and all admistrators I've never had a problem with shipments being late or anything like that they have been great for me and I reccomend them to everyone and anyone that doesnt like school give ECOT a shot and its free.
ECOT is a wonderful school! My kids would not attend any where else. My kids concentrate on their school work, not on the other kids or what they are wearing. Although they don't see the other kids on a day to day bases, they have Prom, online chats, and parent teacher conferences. As for the computer system going down, it happens rarely and thats bound to happen when using the internet. My kids teachers have constant communication wether through email or phone calls. My kids love it and so do I. You never have to worry about your children being in harms way when they are on a protected internet in the saftey of your own home!
Ecot is awesome! My kids hated school and were ready to drop out. Now, they have passed there tests and are staying in school. The teachers are the most caring I've ever worked with. They always work hard to fix the problems. Ecot is the best.
My son has been enrolled in ECOT for 3 years. We have never had any problems, and my son is doing great. Not only did he pass all of his proficiency tests, but he scored advanced on his Math, Science, and Citizenship tests which are taken in person. They arranged a nearby location that was very convenient for us to travel to. I think the cirriculum is great and exceeds that of the public school in the district where we live. Lori Cox
ECOT (Electronic Classroom Of Tomorrow) is terrible. Their network is down frequently, teacher to student communication can be very poor, and it can be near impossible to solve and problems. Their shipments are usually late; they can be up to 6 months late! Their mail packets (they are used when a student cannot access ECOT through the computer) are sometimes incomplete and even the wrong subject. They use the 'Honor system' to deliver tests. Very few people stick to that system. I would never recommend ECOT to anyone!
We have 8 children 6 of which are enrolled in Ecot. My children are recieving the best education of their lives. The teachers are absolutley wonderful. I would recommend this school to everyone I meet that is interested in a charter and /or homeschooling.
