Horrible. If you want a REAL online school program, CONNECTIONS ACADEMY IS THE ONE to go with... or K12 Ohio Virtual Academy.


Posted March 10, 2014

Absolutely worst school or home school experience I've ever had. I'm going to fail this school year (in which I was suppose to graduate) because of their lack of proffessionalism. Even when trying to enroll Id be on hold for an hour or more. After I finally enrolled and got my computer they scheduled me for a bunch of classes I didn't need and even scheduled me for a semester class for the first semester wen there was only a few weeks unt it was over!! I called daily for two months because I had issues navigating and I needed to switch classes. And when I say daily I mean DAILY. Even when they just opened for the day. All of the times I called not once did they answer. I didn't even get put on hold to wait for someone, I just got an automatic message saying they had high call volume, to call later, then it was hung up. I have two other friends that failed due to this school. It's sickening, I'm a soon to be mother and now I have to try graduating next year while tending to a newborn and with a job. Shame on these people.

I love the fact of how helpful everyone is and they want your child to succeed.

I love this school. I have two children one has graduated in 2012, and the other one has been going for three years getting ready for fourth grade. I love the flexibility of this school the teachers are very understanding of what ever is going on in your life. I love how they are teaching the children how to use the computer and the technology that our children will be using in the future.I like how they give the children the whole quarter to get there homework done. (We don't wait to do homework it is done at the beginning of the week so the rest of the week is free only thing that is left to do is to log in when they need to for each class at the time they are told to from each teacher.) They also have field trips all over Ohio like Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Toledo zoo.The Wilds, Kings Island, and Cedar Point. They also go bowling. COSI, and many others. I can say that I don't know why all schools do not go this way of education. They just make things easier not a lot of homework either. Yes there is some computer problems but they don't count it against your child They just don't have class that day for the class you can not get into.

We had all sorts of issues with this school. The server was down a number of times. If the teacher was ill sometimes they would have a pre recorded class, but usually there was no class at all. I took my child out after a very short period of time. If you are looking for an online school for your child I recommend OHVA.

ECOT is A great alternative to traditional public schools. The teachers are very good, they are easy to contact and always answer requests quickly. The students can work at their own pace and all the classes are recorded so they can view any time. My son did so well that he may actually graduate early.

Much better than spending 7 hours a day on the same curriculum as a brick and mortar 'school'. ECOT is fully accredited. Some classes are easier than other, just like in every school. Very satisfied with teacher participation and involvement. I would recommend ECOT and OHVA very strongly to anyone looking for an alternative to so-called 'traditional schools'

My son loves this school. He was enrolled in another online school which is very popular. They other school was horrible. He has excelled so much since he has been here. He loves his teachers and loves participating in the elluminate session. Yes you can do the school work on your time. You have to participate in elluminate and my child loves it. I dont understand why some of you are rating it bad because of the elluminate sessions. the session actually help your child excell.

ECOT is a wonderful school!!! My children went to the same public school until one was in 2nd and one in 5th. They went to ECOT for 2 years. The following year they decided they would like to go back to their previous school because they missed their friends a lot.( BIG MISTAKE!) Yes, back then the Elluminate sessions were having technical difficulties and sometimes the sessions even had to be cancelled. Even then, my children learned SO much more than in all their previous years at public school! This year I decided to re-enroll them due to one being bullied for absolutely no reason! The previous school failed to do ANYTHING about it! We had meeting after meeting. Now they are in 5th and 8th grade and I keep in regular contact with all of their teachers here. They are always very helpful and never hesitate to ask if my kids need any help with anything or re-explained. In order for your child to be successful there, you have to commit to be a "responsible" parent meaning you as well as the teachers should be able to help your children with their homework and anything else they may need help with. I make sure that I am here every day for their classes. ECOT is a wonderful school!!

Unprofessional, they claim to try and help students. But, they wait until it's too late. Then they block them from catching up. I will NEVER use ECOT for my children again!!

So far we are very pleased with the school. My daughter is in her second year of middle school and I've talked more in 2 wks to ecot teachers than her other school teachers in 1 1/2 years

Some of the teachers at ECOT are too pushy with the younger students. If a teacher feels you are not participating they kick you out of the class if you don't give an answer right away. This happens in the 8th grade. This current school year is real bad with computer issues and the server not letting you into class. This is not a way to go...for some. The teachers over burden the students with a lot of work to turn in. Way too much time on a computer! Where is the family time!!! There needs to be more team work!! Not dictatorship!!!! Also, you need more user friendly programs for the younger students of this school. Make learning fun for the children!!

Principals won't return students calls. Teachers are highly condiscending when the children don't grasp the work. The programs and equipment are fair at best. The counselors are simply inept. Period. Your children will not flourish under these conditions. Poor at best.

At my old school i was bullied. I am going to graduate in 2012. At first this school had technical issues and no club. In 2010-2011 school year they added in clubs(Still new) and the computer issues and servers issues have been sorted. I love my teachers. At my old public school my math teacher didn't want to help me. She said she has 120 students to worry about and she could not focus on just one student. I was getting a D. At ECOT, My Math teacher works one and one with me. I have an A in math so far! I love how my teachers can work one on one with me. I know some teachers will help people even after there office hours. I also love how i don't get bullied now and i am not scared of school. This school is a leader in a new space of Online Education and they keep improving.

Just beware if you have any aspirations of joining the military. You will be denied entry as they will consider this school on the same level as getting a GED.

This school is so terrible i was in a public school before Ecot and i tried Ecot and my grades dropped and i was an honor student. Ecot lies and says you can do it on your own time but thats a lie you have to log in on sessions. bottom line is this school is bad. only do Ecot if its your last resort.

I am a student at ECOT I have been there for two years now and love it before coming to ecot i went to a public school all my life and didnt want to give up my friends but i had to focus on what was best for me now i am graduating next year while all my 'friends' are in 9th grade still. Ecot is a wonderful school and the teachers are always there to help you and will let you try until you feel you've done your best they don't leave students behind unless you choose not to do your work. Plus it is a computer school they do have family fun night events (never been) But that's kinda what you get when your home schooled but you can always do events and organizations outside of school to find and meet new friends. I greatly recommend ecot!!!!!

ECOT has been a savior for my daughter. She a public school honor student, she transfered in her junior year and loves the school.

My daughter has been enrolled for five years now, and I have to say that ECOT gets better and better each year. You can tell that they really care about the quality of the instruction they provide. This year, more than ever, teachers are videoconferencing with their students to improve their teaching. I felt that my daughter was so unsafe in the local school. She is succeeding with ECOT!

We've been with ECOT for 6 years and it is one of the best online charter schools in Ohio. The teachers are friendly and very helpful. Their tech support team is very knowledgeable and we have had very few problems with the equipment.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
