ohva in the beginning was a great school ..offered what i was looking for my child..but starting going down hill .with all the new rules and regs..and one of the draw backs i feel with ohva .and why i feel it is not working is that ohva is more geared for younger students .there is little social contact and the f2s are not really planed for older age students ..and i believe unless they start working on some of these issues there will be a higher percentage of children leaving

I have gone to OHVA for 5 years. In the beginning, things were going pretty well. As others have said though, it is totally different now. The teachers are rude and have hung up on my mother many times. I am sick of the lackluster teaching and how long it takes to get any help or a reply. My grades are slipping and there is very low student participation. I was once in high honors and now I am without the help I need. They won't respond to our emails about acquiring a tutor. The offices are a complete mess and I still haven't received my report card after months of waiting, plus they can't find my records. Thanks K12 & OHVA, for making my school experience miserable.

I have been with this school for over four years and I agree what I saw another parent write. Something has definitely changed with this school. I enrolled my H.S. student and they never gave her a schedule and without any notice whatsoever she was withdrawn and got lables requesting to send the materials back. I now I am having another teacher threatening me with truancy about my younger student who started school late and is almost complete with all his assignments except three and he has over 550 hours as far as attendance goes and he should only have 510 before the end of January and he is far above that. It is awful and when we leave this time we will not be returning. Warning to any parent thinking that you will be allowed the flexibility you need to homeschool your child at your own pace it is no longer like that so sad but true. Truly has gone down hill.

Amazing school! My child is able to work at her on paste. Enrolling to this school was one of the best decisions I have made.

I started my daughter in Kindergarten this year. I was originally intending to do straight up homeschooling, but as I am not a teacher I was nervous about picking out books and worksheets on my own. So I picked this as a middle ground. I like the fact that they supply all the books. I did not like how my daughter was never assessed at the beginning of the school year in order to find how to place her. I asked the teacher about it, because she was too far above the lessons on her plan. The teacher told me to just make her take the assessments, but then it was daily test after test to the point that my daughter was crying and refusing to go any farther. After her first Aimsweb I talked to her teacher who did do an actual assessment on her, and she got moved up into their 1st grade coursework. Now, my daughter has more initiative. I am glad they did that, but it took almost two months into the program. I also feel that they advertise for this "work at your own pace", but it set up as a Mon-Fri thing. It pops up attendance notifications if you decide not to do lessons on a weekday, even if you catch up on Saturday. Plus there is a lot of repetition...way too much repetition.

My husband and I enrolled our son in the 8th grade. He is now in the 11th grade. Best thing we could have done. He was in a Catholic school, but was very unmotivated. He felt left out of all of the circles and cliques and was really struggling. Once enrolled in OHVA he turned around. His grade point is now 3.8 and he ENJOYS learning and studying. He said he doesn't have to worry about what other students are doing and/or saying and appreciates the fact that he does not have to deal with "all the crap" as he puts it, in high school. I highly recommend this school. They have made the transition from regular school to online school easy and it is the best decision that we have done for our son's education.

Positive turn around for a struggling student! In October of 2012 our son was being suspended for a second time from the local school district. As I was walking him in one of the final mornings I heard a group of girls say, "I thought we had gotten rid of him." My son had not heard these comments as he was ahead of them. Over the rest of the school year with OHVA, I watched my son bloom with confidence and ability. He had to work and I had to push but together I found a stronger, happier and better rounded student and son. OHVA was helpful, but parents must be on board with education. Wife and I both have teaching certificates. OHVA is not an answer for everyone but is beneficial for those suffering with peer issues. Our son ended the school year with academic honors for his hard work, finishing the years work in 3 -nine week sessions.

This school has been a wonderful choice for my daughter. She is a straight A student and she enjoys working independently. She has enrolled in many honors classes, and they have encouraged her to take post-secondary classes her junior and senior year in high school. My daughter is looking forward to her next two years of school with OHVA.

OHVA is an absolute joke. The teachers and advisors dont care and really do not know what is going on with you. Just to get awnsers you must chase down your teacher or advisor and then send them 20 kmails asking the same question until they finally tell you what you need to know or you get fed up with the constant circle of babble. This school is great for someone who plans to drop out because you dont need to learn anything!! They will jast graduate you for breathing!! They would pass along my dog in this school because they do not care. I would not recomend this program to any one. So far this year do you want to know what I learned? I learned how to cheat and not to ask my teachers or anyone for help.


Posted September 14, 2012

This post applies to those searching Eschools for your child with special needs or struggles. Before enrolling, take a look at the state's database on complaints. While my 4 children had attended, it was great for general education on a 3 star rating but for my special needs child, who is very high functioning, it was an utterly nightmare. You are told they can serve your special needs child but it is evident that they have not been successful by any means in their 10 year history. Beware of, "yes, we can serve your child" because it is law that they can't deny enrollment to any child. Do your homework. There are massive amounts of articles written by attorneys and investigators the like on their failure, money driven, FOR PROFIT, school.

I LOVE this school! We get to work at our own pace, take time where needed, and even split up the grade levels. (My son is in mostly 4th grade and 2 of the third grade classes) - which play to his strengths and areas that need more improvements. The class connects are wonderful, they provide EVERYTHING you could think of, and if we need time off or want to work over the summer, we can. We love this school and highly recommend it. (Also, they offer many field trips and opportunities for the kids to mingle.) PS - My son's teachers have gone above and beyond for him in many areas - and make him feel like he's really part of a class.

OHVA is the best virtual school I have used for my kids so far. The teachers are very involved with the students and they provide numerous class connects for each subject. I also receive constant Kmails from them with updates on the childrens progress.

Last year was our first year with OHVA. My son attending traditional school from preschool to midyear 3rd grade. His teachers were having difficultly with his lack of attention and completing his work in class. He no longer enjoyed school and I began to consider alternatives. I decided to make the leap to eschool in January of his 3rd grade. The curriculum OHVA uses with K12 is so empowering for children. My son went from feeling "dumb" (his words) to now feeling very good about his education. He is not only grasping math but is learning Spanish, History, Art History and Science at a depth traditional school can not reach at this grade level. They also have the courses set up to relate to the same subject matter throughout History, Art, Science and Language Arts so the learning process flows from one subject to the next. As his learning coach I have a flexible plan to guide his coursework and monitor his success. I was very concerned that I might be making a big mistake but it was, without doubt, one of the best decisions I've made as a parent. We have all our materials for 4th grade and he is already asking me when we can start.

OHVA has been a fantastic school for our family. Our 11 year old daughter and 7 year old son have both been in since kindergarten. We have a two year old who will be enrolling when she's old enough for school. We've had nothing but great experiences with the teachers. They are there for as much or as little help as you need. They are simply an email or phone call away. The curriculum is amazing. It is challenging, engaging, and well organized. Using the combination of books and online work it keeps the kids from getting bored. We love the flexibility of the school, allowing our kids to work at their own pace in all their subjects. When they need more time on an assignment, we can take it. If we have family emergency, we can take care of what needs done and still get school work done. We're able to take a vacation when it fits our schedule and the kids still can keep up on their school work and not have to worry about missing school. We have regular group activities with school friends, like bowling, field trips to museums, anything we feel that would enrich our kids' educations. We wouldn't do anything else.

We have been with OHVA for 4 yrs and it has been WONDERFUL! The teachers are awesome and my kids LOVE school now! They do their work and classes and don't have tons of homework in the evening. We also get to see their grades and progress right away and don't have to wait for a teachers conference. Our son with Asperger's is doing fantastic and is finally enjoying school. Our daughter that is "gifted" feels challenged and enjoys learning with the K12 program. They have many school outings and activities for the children to participate in and meet other OHVA families. The online classes are fun and interactive. If my children have any problems, it is very easy for them to contact their teachers for help or additional one on one classes. The kids are testing very high on the state tests without all the stress. They can go the bathroom, eat, etc whenever they want to without waiting for a convienient time for a teacher. They can have a peanut butter sandwich and do math problems all at the same time or do it outdoors when the weather is nice. We love OHVA and it has been a huge blessing to our family.

Being a fifth year parent with OHVA I am very pleased with the school. The staff is helpful, caring and always willing to answer any questions we have. I have two boys that are working with intervention specialists and the school has placed us with a wonderful speech teacher and a wonderful occupational therapist. I don't know why we waited so long to come to OHVA. There are always ways to connect with other parents and students. With my oldest son being bullied in the brick and mortar schools. He was getting depressed and not wanting to go, with this school he is doing better and able to connect with other kids his age. My oldest daughter graduated this past June and was so happy to hear that she didn't have to retake the O.G.T's because she passed them with flying colors the first time in the 10th grade. I love this school and the staff. Parent from Cincinnati, OH

Our experience with OHVA has been positive since her first year (we have been with OHVA for 3 years). My daughter is 15 and will start her junior year in a few weeks. After 3 years with OHVA my husband and I thought it would be good for her to switch back to a traditional school, only because of the student interaction that she currently lacks, but she strongly refuses to even consider the idea. On the other hand, I had to consider the fact that: her report card shows straight A s (except for one B+), she has been taking English & History at a higher level (11th grade History & English in 10th grade); she rated advanced in all areas of the Ohio Graduation Test; and that she will be taking Advance Placement and Honor classes this coming year. So after considering how well she s doing and how much she likes OHVA, I won t bother her with a traditional school that doesn t even offer honor classes. Instead, we ll work on finding more activities that will allow her to meet other like-minded teenagers. I must say that OHVA is not for everyone, but it s the right school for my daughter.

OHVA HS believes that students should have an easy time at math. Therefore, they routinely issue the same subject materials for outgoing 8th grade students and incoming 9th grade students. It doesn't happen for every course, but if it happens for just one, it is too many. Exposing children to typical learning materials for their grade level isn't something that OHVA gets, so if you're considering enrolling your child, be sure to ask questions about placement before you end up with a big surprise. Not all courses have physical textbooks, so beware. If you don't need them, great, but if you travel withouth computer access or if your child needs to hold what she or she is reading, you may find yourself disappointed in science, for instance. Some veteran parents who have used the program for a number of years will staunchly defend OHVA's less-then-desirable practices. Take their advice with a grain of salt as many have no clue what how a high school curriculum should progress simply, because they've never experienced or researched anything else. You may find that OHVA is OK for K-6, but not beyond. Do your research and don't be pulled in by the hard sell and advertisements.

I've attended many high schools trying to progress in my life, and this has to be the absolute worst of them all. They do not care about their students. They will not help you in anyway other then playing phone tag with you. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I spoke directly to the principle to have him sign one piece of paper allowing me to withdraw from the school and obtain My Ohio GED, And he treated me as nicely as possible when he was on the phone with me. Then would not hold up to his word whatsoever. No one in the administration would help. They have no problem not helping specific students. In the end , the only way I was able to withdraw was refusing to log on daily. And now, Trying to contact their records department , no one returns phone calls. even after days of leaving voice-mails. If you are even considering this school Don't.

I absolutely adore OHVA. The support getting everything set up was perfect, the teachers we've worked with were sublime, and the curriculum goes above and beyond to be relevant and engaging for even the younger students. At every turn, I have felt support and direction, 24 hours a day. I was worried about the social interaction my daughters would be missing by not being in a brick and mortar school, but my fears were quickly laid to rest the first time I looked at the School Calendar. With scores of fabulous outings to choose from, we found ourselves out and interacting nearly every single week, and we've made some great friends as well. This learning experience has truly been a blessing for me, and a huge blessing for my daughters who now love learning once again. I am so thankful we chose OHVA and look forward to many more years working with them. This program is fantastic.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The OAA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

The different student groups are identified by the Ohio Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
