I am a mother of four kids and all of them are home school. I love the cyber school and the curriculum that they offer. I would say it is the best choices I made for my kids because it give us flexibility to get ahead or catch up on each subject. But I must say it is not easy to do homeschooling. It takes responsibility of a parent to make sure that the kids do what they suppose to do. Parents need to be 100% involve if you looking for a positive result. It needs dedication, planning, responsibility, decipline, focus, motivation and etc....but if the parents and the student have the same positive goal for what they want to accomplish in terms of their educations ,, everything is beneficial for the student. I love it and I will stay at cyber school because I can see there is a bright side for what I am doing for my kids. It is takes a lot of sacrifice but its all worth it.

I have been working at this school almost since the beginning. It breaks my heart to see what we have become. We no longer enforce attendance, and as a result many students have missed well into the 30 day range. Students often times log into class and then walk away without truly being engaged. Cheating runs rampant and there is nothing the teachers nor supervisors can do to stop it. We are beginning to let down future generations. We are not teaching responsibility, accountability, or high expectations. Every year students are worse than before. Morale is at an all time low, the VC department has unionized due to many of these reasons, and it fells like things are falling apart. These students are not being prepared for college or for life. The truth hurts to hear, especially when we never used to be this way.

Students have to be VERY productive and stay in task. It is very difficult and I went from a 96% at my old school to a 70% in PA Cyber. It is not easy, and the wording is increadably hard. It is also hard to locate the lessons and the tests. Some teachers and IS's are impatient, and it is VERY easy to fall behind. I do not recommend this school.

If you arer willing to commit to the work, PA Cyber offers a great experience for parent and student. Make no mistake, you must be motivated to stay on task. But, that could be said of any learning situation. The flexibility offered at PA Cyber is excellent, and it is great to have a choice of curriculum. Also, we have had very positive experiences with our Instructional Supervisor and all other PA Cyber staff. I am grateful we have this school as an option in our state. It is a wonderful opportunity for students and their parents!

I have been using PA Cyber for 5 years now. If you really put the work in, your child WILL learn by leaps and bounds--if you are lazy and do not put time into your child, they will suffer. This school has been amazing and a God-send. I LOVE it--it's so rich with opportunity and support. I don't know what I would have done without PA Cyber!

I only went to this school for 8th grade. If any school is average, this would be it. It definitely had great qualities, but nothing I couldn't get anywhere else. The fact that I was online doing school was a big transition. It's just not for everyone, but those who travel a lot I understand why they would want to attend a school like this. Although it gives you little to not human interaction with other students. There are few class trips, but not enough to have close relationships with the other students. Depending on who you are, you're discipline levels either increase or decrease. I wasn't doing self paced, but I still had trouble engaging in the classes. Every student is difficult, and I know I blame myself for that. However, if you were struggling I never felt the teachers really truly tried to help you. I didn't learn very much, and it was almost like I had a year off of school. I did like that the teachers voices were over the intercom. I also liked that they told you about themselves and their lives, while also teaching. There are pros and cons to this school, like all.

My daughter began PA cyber last Fall for her junior year of high school. Although I am happy to have had the cyber school option, we have been less than thrilled with PA Cyber. We have been accused of lying when she had an extended illness last year that required emergency surgery and had to fight with the principal not to fail her out of classes. Our Instructional Supervisor was rude and unprofessional, often times telling us that my daughter would never get into college and would need to go to a tech or community college. THERE IS NO SUPPORT AT THIS SCHOOL. They do not assist you with SAT prep or educate you on what's available in your community. The transcript office forgot several times to forward her records to requested colleges where we had paid for/completed applications. Thanks to them, at least one college never received her information and we missed the application deadline because. All of this being said, my daughter was able to keep her QPA up, did well on her SATs ON HER OWN and has gotten into every other college and university she has applied, all First Tier top 200 colleges. In retrospect, I wish I would have homeschooled her or chosen a different cyber school.

This school gets two stars because of what it USE to be.. It will not get 5 because of what it has become! I was a student at PA Cyber for 5, almost 6 years. Through those years I've had my ups and downs with this school but no matter what I always said to myself it was better than public school. I did start to slack when I first started but my IS quickly got me back on track, I've been through several Instructors over the years but while some were quite stern not one of them prepared me for my most recent and last Instructor. She threatened to kick me out of PA cyber for not abiding by the rules that she set forth. I did what the school required, but she wanted more. She wanted things done her way and only her way. I didn't stay in PA Cyber long after she became my instructor, and no she didn't have the chance to kick me out because I dropped out to get away from her. Word of advice to parents.. If you don't like your instructor or the instructor is making it hard for your kids in school, call the higher ups.. You can get a different IS. If anyone from PA cyber may be reading this, look into what your IS's are doing. They're digging PA Cyber into an even deeper hole!

I am in LOVE with PA Cyber and wonder why I didn't do it with my kids. I had one borderline student and one with severe allergies. I brought the first one home because she was getting ill every day. It went so great that I added my next child the following year.. both are now honor students excited to learn.

This school provides excellent opportunities for anyone that has the desire and the drive to learn and succeed! I am not surprised by some of the negative comments because some people choose cyber schools thinking that they will be the "easy" route for their children. But like brick and mortar schools, PA Cyber requires hard work and dedication if you want to succeed. One of my children has graduated from PA Cyber and has been accepted into a university honor's program. Both of my children work very hard and are driven and determined. They have taken advantage of every opportunity that PA Cyber has extended to them and they have benefited greatly from their experiences here. We have never had a problem with communicating with teachers and/or administrators. All of our phone calls and emails have been returned in a timely fashion. We came to PA Cyber because we wanted MORE educational opportunities than what we were receiving at our local school ... and we got it! Cyber school isn't for everyone but for those that are driven to excel and succeed, it's a great place to be. If you are looking for an easy pass through the educational system, this is not the place for you.

I absolutely loved PA Cyber. I had some really good teachers, especially for Chemistry and Physics. Then I also did the self paced option for English, and History, which was really nice. For math, I was always behind in math in the public brick-and-mortar school. PA Cyber provided a private tutor for me that helped me catch up, even during the summer. I even became part of PA Cyber's first group of National Honor Society students. I am now going to be entering my junior year at Penn State University. I also found that working on a computer all the time greatly increased my computer skills and have been valuable to me ever since. Yes, I had a couple computer issues, but nothing I and the tech support team couldn't handle quickly. Do not let the low star reviews scare you away from this opportunity. This is a great school!

I have been in PA Cyber for three years, and I can tell you it has been the best three years for me intellectually. They have many courses to choose from, and I have a wonderful Instructional Supervisor. Every teacher I have had in Virtual Classroom has gone above and beyond. They're witty and make learning fun. PA Cyber also offers a scholarship program to high school students (which I am a part of) and it is really a great way to get your future started! Tech support has always been helpful to me, and I've also never had a problem getting ahold of my Self-Paced teachers. :)

My sons (grade 9 & 12)have been with PA Cyber for 7 years. Due to health issues(my youngest missed 17 days during his last year in public school-reoccurring strep) & school bus issues that were unresolved by the school principal; I decided I needed to make a change. Our school (PA Cyber) isn't perfect. My biggest complaint is "the impersonal" interaction with the staff. I miss talking face-to-face with the teachers. They can be reached via phone or email and are happy to help with any issues at hand. My sons have a great curriculum coordinator(IS); he has been a constant help over the years we've been with PA Cyber. There is a degree of time that is needed from the parent(s) to insure that your child is staying on track. It's not for everyone. Lastly, I like the fact that my kids don't have to conform to what other kids think of "cool": They can be themselves and no classmate of theirs will mock them in class for being themselves. There are benefit but they don't come trouble-free. You, the parent, have to be there for your child and it will work.

To new people, your first year, more like your first 6-7 months, will be a bit problematic. Once you get past that time period, it's pretty much smooth sailing.* Once you enroll, you HAVE to be invovled. It's not enroll, and then just let your child do the work . PA Cyber's staff isn't perfect, the ISs, Tech staff, and teachers. The teachers have multiple classes, with 20-25 students a class. The ISs have many students under thier supervision. Tech Support has thousands of calls a day. Okay, Now on to my expierence. They're great. I'm an 8th grader, and I can see myself graduting in PA Cyber. My brother, who's in college, graduted from PA Cyber. We have been homeschooled, and he's been in public school as well. We both agree that PA Cyber was/is great. We don't agree on much. *You will have tech problems they're just less frequent.

We began PA Cyber this week so take this review for what it is. My children were in Catholic School until this year. I have one 10th grader who is very self-motivated and a 7th grader who isn't. I have 5 other children in the home that I am homeschooling for the first time. So far, there have been many computer problems. There was some security problems with passwords so we couldn't log on for day one of school. My younger child's computer broke the 2nd day of school and neither laptop would work with the printer they gave us. Both my children are self-paced but I'm finding us sending a lot of emails to the teachers because the 3 question exams at the end of each lesson don't match the material they read. Lots of times the links to videos/podcasts to watch won't work. There are many old messages (2 years) on a lot of the teachers' webpages. My oldest child doesn't like it so far. We were told by our supervisor that we would really have no access to the teachers but should go through him. One teacher we emailed did get right back to us but it's beginning to be a pain. I spend a lot of time working with them which takes away from my time with the others. Time will tell.

This school got too big too fast. Disorganized. Has a few great teachers but most are average and a few are really lacking. Teachers go on vacation or get sick and have no substitute just a 2-20 minute pre-recorded class. Curriculum is slow and the paced classes spend too much time showing the kids how to work the computer or equipment. Technical issues dissappeared when we joined a different cyber school. The asynchronous program is like a correspondance course..GONE WRONG. PhysEd and Art Program are boring. Great school for the underachiever. Do the research.....other cyber schools have much more to offer if your child is motivated. The only plus is their Schoology program is easy to read and follow....if only all teachers would post information and homework the same way but....that's where the disorganization comes in...It's a business..in need of some reorganization.

I love this school! My daughter is excelling and loves to work at her own pace. Parents need to be involved in their child's education to make this work but that is one of the perks of this type of school for me. I enjoy seeing her learn every day. She also takes advantage of the flexibility the school has and has been to New York this year and will visit Chicago and Myrtle Beach next month. She has already finished 6th grade early and is working on a 7th grade class. PA Cyber also offers art classes and field trips. I could go on and on.

The last few reviews are right on. My kids have excelled in PA Cyber and are happier than ever. If you do not want to be involved in your children's education than this is not the place for you. We are self paced and love the flexibility. We have a wonderful IS (Instructional Support) who is constantly giving us class options to further their education. We won't ever look back to traditional school.

I just started this year. I am in the 10th grade, and I really quite like PA Cyber. I do mainly self-paced courses because I can't stand to be held back by other students. My grades are very good; I should have a 3.8 GPA this year, compared to public school last year, which was a 2.6 GPA... My only complaint is that a lot of the other kids are boring. They aren't really interesting. Though, this could have to be with me being quite out there and wild. The Virtual Classroom classes are a bit boring, but that is because they go at a monumentally slow pace. The school does not offer AP classes, unfortunately. This is not something for an average kid. I decided to do this because my local high school is extremely dangerous, and I did not feel safe. If your child is not willing to work, then don't bother.

PACYBER is a great choice to have for educating your child. Reading many of these negative posts are quite interesting. When enrolling your child with PACYBER-- you, the parent, take on a responsibility to ensure your child stays on task and understands the routine and material. If you think, you are going to enroll your child and be done with it---you are wrong! All children, no matter what school they attend, need parent involvement and assistance. Traditional school proved not to be the best fit for us with a gifted child who was ahead of her classmates for 3 years. PACYBER was a great option to have. Your child can do everything that they did in traditional school without having to deal with all of the negative things that happen in traditional school settings. Are cyber schools good for everyone? Of course not--just as traditional schools are not good for everyone. In our opinion---CHOICE is a good thing. I don't understand why some think it should be all one way.

Wow! I am surprised at some of the low ratings of this school! I don't know if these unfortunate experiences are due to wanting to be 'spoon fed' or if they ran up against that one percent of teachers who might be new or incompetent. (yes, they are out there!) This is unfortunate and I would ask these people to please make phone calls and get the right info and help you need from this school. It is out there! Sometimes you have to make an effort to find it at first.

My son used this school several years ago. We didn't really understand the methods such as being part of a virtual lecture and didn't get any real help. He wasn't doing his work and there was no assistance. He was on his own. He had Aspergers syndrome and was being bullied and had difficulty in regular school but this didn't work for him. There was a theater program they had opening locally and we were told to come in and talk to someone about it. No one told us this was an audition. There were people sitting there behind laptops just staring at him and he froze up and wouldn't say anything. The guy in charge of the program was a jerk. Per PA law they discriminated against him due to his disabilities. He didn't get anything out of his experience. A waste of time. Some of these 5 stars ratings look fake.

We switched our son to PACyber this year from another cyber school because of PACyber's unique "virtual classroom" option. We now deeply regret the decision. Now on our third week of class, they have yet to do any actual work, and classes are focused on "how do we use this online tool". Teachers miss class, with no substitute. There are frequent technical problems with the online classes with kids and teachers dropping out of class for 5-10 minutes at a time. The technical support is a complete joke. My son was shipped a laptop with a broken sound card, it took tech support almost a WEEK to return my phone call, even with repeated calls asking for an update. It took another week to ship the laptop back and get it repaired, meanwhile being lied to about its status. Claiming it was shipped out when it was actually shipped out 4 days later. There are approximately a dozen different websites used for various classes, and virtually no direction on what each one is for, with duplicated or contradictory information given on each one. Looking through the course material we received, it is inferior to the k12 courses he was taking at the previous school. PACyber is disorganized and a JOKE!

My boys have been in this school for 4 years and we love it. My boys previously went to a Christian school and loved it as well but due to my boys learning difficulties we decided to make the switch to Pa Cyber. What a great choice it was for our whole family. Prior to the Christian school my boys also briefly went to our high ranked Moon School district which though academically great did awful with the safety aspect. My son was put on a wrong bus when he didn't even ride the bus. No issues with Cyber school knowing WHERE your child is, no issues with paying a huge tuition either....back to school shopping consists of buying little to nothing as everything is provided and my youngest who was supposed to be held back and was failing is now straight A's. If other schools are doing so well....why does Pa Cyber have thousands of kids enrolled....they are doing something right. And my boys are living proof of that...thank you Pa Cyber!

I find it hard to believe with such a low standard rating. This post has so many positives about this school. We have been in it for 2 years. The Principal is a joke and DOES NOT return phone calls or helpful. The tech support is a joke also. Days will pass after you have to leave a message. You have no time frame to expect a return call back. Our situation seemed to always have missing documents for the school work. Even after resending and resending the same ones over and over. As for their trips. If you don't mind traveling 2-3 hours away and 2-3 hrs back home. Then it may be great field trip / meeting times for your child. As for check in by the educators???? This was extremely rare happening. Now at the end of her 4th grade year. We have to fight for her grades. And will be turning the principal in to a very higher source. Principal leadership is a mockery of our education system. And she should be fired!!!!!!

I would never recommend Cyber School to anyone. Stay in a brick & mortar school at all costs. If you must do cyber school for medical reasons, as was our case, than only choose a virtual classroom. Do NOT attempt self-paced. You are completely on your own to read, understand and learn the material. There is no support. It is isolating and lonely. You will lose the friends you had in traditional highschool because they're not seeing you daily. Cyber school is not the ideal world people make it out to be. Get out of the house, get fresh air, meet & interact with other kids and have face to face relationships with your teachers. Statistically most people do NOT stay in cyber school and now my family understands why. It's a bunch of hype how connected you'll be to the teachers & how easy it is to obtain tutoring & how you'll meet other kids. I had to hire private tutors @ $40/hour to teach my teenager the material. I am a fulltime mother, but not an educator. Even an exceptionally bright student lke mine needs a teacher! I am glad our short stint with Cyber is over. We are overjoyed to be back in the real world enjoying the human experience as it should be.

As a student who has graduated with PA Cyber, my only regret is I didn't do it sooner. I attended Pa Cyber from 8th-12th grade and graduated in 2010. The Virtual Classes are incredible you have hands on experience with a real teacher real class mates and there are always tutoring sessions available. I went from being a C student in a "brick and mortar" school to a A-B student just by the classroom environment and hands on learning. I highly recommend PA cyber to any one who wants the most out of their high school education.

The school lacks teaching science as a hands on subject. The omit labs, which can hamper a child if they decide to go into science as a major. They do not review the scientific method or have the child apply it any way. The test in all subject lack guidiance in what a child should study for the exams. Basically you are givin 4 units in the book and the questions are random for you to answer.

PA Cyber Charter School allows children to learn at their own pace using state of the art technology. Through virtual classes kids can learn via powerpoint presentations along with teacher discussion and lessons.

Our youngest child attended PA Cyber for one year and we would never, ever send her back. They never did her IEP regardless of numerous phone calls from us asking that it be done. Never once did they reimburse us for our internet connection even though they were supposed to. Her computer was constantly on the blink which lead to assignments not being turned in on time and repeated calls to tech support. Tech support would take days to respond to tech issues, often taking over her computer while she was in the middle of a class. The final straw came when children were assigned a letter to write as part of their English class. The letter was a plea for money for the school which was being sent to congressmen and state representatives. We don't send our child to school to write letters begging for money.

This is the first year we have been at Pa Cyber. My child is in 9th grade and He has never been happier. He is a great learner and this way of schooling is perfect for him. He is excelling in all of his classes and He is absorbing the information like a sponge. I am so glad we have a choice. We were very unhappy in the public school system.

During the short time my son was a student we have never dealt with more incompetency than at this school. The supervisor was supposed to contact us on a regular basis and we had to contact her. My son never recieved his french book even though it was promised to be sent on a weekly basis, even the french teacher gave up in frustration. even now afterwards trying to deal with this organization(and I use the term loosly) trying to get his transcripts seems like a nightmare of sometimes daily excuses for their inability to send them for one reason or another. I havent found this level of incompetency anywhere else.

This is our second year with the PA Cyber Charter School, and we could not be happier. When my son was in public school, I had always wished that I could observe his classes each day, thereby being able to build on the teacher's lesson, if necessary, when it came time to complete homework. Now I can either listen to my son's class as it's in progress, or watch a playback later. All teachers from PA Cyber that I've observed have been both kind and firm; NEVER have I heard a teacher from PA Cyber scream at my child, which I cannot say for those at his previous brick-and-mortar school. These teachers are also GOOD teachers. The kids get to talk to each other in small groups in each class. The curriculum is challenging. Our son is doing extremely well at this school academically, and he is HAPPY.

Im a student and I love it Im getting a better education than I was getting in the public school that I pulled out of. The teachers are always there for you and tutoring is opened everyday to help with what ever you need. The teachers I dont even have are more than willing to help. They go above and beyond any expecations I had when I enrolled. A+++++ =]

I was concerned that keeping a students computer up and running efficiently would be an issue, but the help desk technician I have been working with is exceptional. Sean Hamilton has provided quick, courteous, and professional support everytime I call. I have spoke with other technicians and they are almost as knowledgeable and are a pleasure to work with.

This is our first year with PA Cyber and so far we are very pleased with the experience. My daughter is in fourth grade with all on-line classes and her teachers are wonderful. We had previously home schooled the old fashion way and my daughter is so much more happy with this. She loves the interaction with the other students and the positive reinforcement from her teachers. The testing and grading sites are easy to use for kids and parents too. We had one or two tech issues but they were resolved quickly. I would recommend this school to any one who is thinking of home schooling but is doubtful of their own teaching abilities.

Easily the best thing I have ever done. I tell everyone I know to do this if they can. The books and supplies are all you could need, the support from my IS is constant and being able to teach my kids as I see fit is beyond my expectations. The field trips are great. I am glad this is a growing trend as parents are the backbone to their childrens' education and this allows us to take control back.

PA Cyber has been a great experience for us so far. We our currently in our second year and I am still amazed at how helpful and accomodating they are. The Calvert curriculum is wonderful, although a little overly-thorough. It is definitely appropriate for many levels of learning. Last school year it was determined that my child needed a specially designed curriculum. The staff at PA Cyber made the testing and IEP implementation process painless and have been excellent about provideding whatever materials are needed. Our Instructional Supervisor is extremely easy to contact and work with. I feel like I simply coulnd't ask for more.

PA Cyber is great if you don't ever need anything. They are looking for families who go with their program, don't ask any questions, and don't make any requests. Lincoln Interactive is cumbersome, most of the links don't work, and my child's assignments were never recorded, according to the school. We are withdrawing from the school.

Our experience with PA Cyber this year (my son's first year) has been excellent!! The teachers are wonderful and accessible always. Minor techinical problems with virtual classes at the beginning that made it a little stressful at the start, but overall, I am so pleased with my son's progress there!! Our IS (instructional supervisor) is there ever step of the way to help, which was especially important when starting the first year of homeschooling my son. Compared to the years in public school, there is so much more teacher contact and involvement for us in his learning process. Could be a little more specific in terms of art and music involvement however. With art classes, I am able to do his lessons with him, but music needs a little more attention (my opinion). It would also be nice to have more extra curricular activities available in our area, but educationally, wonderful!!

This my daughter's first year at Pa Cyber and I give it 10 stars. She is a fourth grade student who attends virtual classes. She loves it because it is just like sitting in a regular class room with other children. If she is having trouble I am aware of it immediately and can contact the teacher at my convenience and not her's as with the 'home' school.

I can tell you that this has been one of the best school experiences yet. We have home-schooled and we have been in the public school. This is a great combination of both. The teachers,I.S. and technical support are great. Our kids have enjoyed this first year. Thank you again for a great experience! Katina

I am a student at Pa Cyber and all I have to say about them is Great. They gave me a computer to use for school and the curriculum of my choice. I do what is called V.C. (virtual classes) Where I get on the computer at certain times a week (I also got to pick my schedule for that from a list) and am teacher by a credited teacher. I liked this way of doing because I know I have to get my work done but there is also teachers there to help me. Hope this helps.

I really like the fact that I can have total oversite with my childs progress. No more waiting weeks to receive a deficiency report when I know exactly when and what assignments are due. My son enjoys studying in a non-distracting atmosphere and is even receiving positive feedback from his guidance counselor. I had a slight learning curve to figure out the processes, but he has been there two years and loves it. He still gets his social time in with a job and positive local organization. His physical education has probably increased as far as activity level because he's involved in activities that he initiates, he's not waiting to be picked for a team by a group of 'cliquey' jocks. The teachers are responsive and knowledgable. He can meet classmates through field trips. We love this school!

I have 3 children in this school. I think this school is the greatest. My girls are in second, seventh, & eighth grade. I would recommend this school to anyone. They give one on one tutoring on the computer when needed. You have all the help you could ask for. The children are able to excel to the rate they are capable of. If they need extra time on any paticular area. They can take that time to really learn it. I would encourage any parent out there to look into this schooling. I would certainly give it 5 stars!

We are the parents of a 5th grade elementary student who has an IEP. The school has provided us with customized Calvert School curriculum, computerized tutoring via SkillsTutor(R), and support services. We are well pleased.
