I had 2 children enrolled at IQ when the year started, but ended up with only 1 enrolled. This school is an EXCELLENT school for the advanced, self-driven child. In comparison to TXVA, I have found IQ to be far superior. I was literally able to tell my child where to log in, go through a brief "here's how this website works," and I have had no other input into her schooling other than to help her prioritize her day. The teachers responded to all her questions via email within a few minutes, and her grades have been excellent. For the child we "un-enrolled", we did so due to her learning disabilities. She wasn't able to keep up with the school work, and I was spending several hours a day in addition to her school time with her teacher just to help her get through it all. If I am able to, I plan on re-enrolling her with an IEP or 504 plan in place to help her out.. IQ has been a godsend for our family.

We've had issues with study island not recording the work the kids do. After they have completed and attempting entering it 5 or more times, it's hard to talk them in to trying "just one more time". I don't feel like the customer service is all that great. Teachers don't respond to emails in a timely manner. When you want to take issues up a step, seems nobody wants to provide you with contact information to do so. I just want my kid to finish the year and be done. I do think that this is a great program for folks that have the time; we just don't. I would think that a parent communication page for parents to correspond and swap success stories, tips, etc. would be a great tool to have, as well. My kiddos have always excelled in TAKS, so that isn't an issue with us.

My son is doing excellent at IQ Academy. He also passed the TAKS scores with flying colors.

I love IQ! This is my son's 2nd year and my daughter's 1st year, and I have no complaints. They have all the tools they need to be successful, and it is a very flexible alternative to "regular" school, but without the huge responsibility of homeschooling. My kids both passed the TAKS tests with flying colors, so I know they're getting a quality education as well.

So far, it's been a month since I contacted the school, and my daughter is still not enrolled. Excuses ranged from, "we left you phone messages," (no missed calls or voice mails on my phone) to "our email must have ended up in your SPAM (nope, I checked). Now they are blaming the weather. I would not recommend IA Academy to anyone.

I was so excited to find IQ Academy when searching for an alternative educational option for my 12 year old. Unfortunately, after over a month of trying to get my child enrolled in their program, I have become so frustrated and concerned with the feedback I have gotten from them that I have decided to withdraw my daughter's application. They were not very accommodating or helpful and though they are friendly and pleasant when I call them, they don't seem to be organized or professional enough to deal with issues that are out of the ordinary. I would think that most students interested in an online school would have special circumstances so I am perplexed by their attitude.

My daughter just completed her first year with iQ Academy. In the beginning it was a little rough since it was their first year, but by October things were running very smoothly. The teachers are awesome and work very hard to make sure that the students have the tools they need for success. The office staff is always available to answer questions and point me in the right direction. My daughter was a little behind in math and they even set up a special course to help her get through the TAKS and she passed with flying colors. It's great to be able to work ahead and most importantly have my daughter at home away from all of the drama in the local school. We're looking forward to another good year!

I Q Academy Texas is a school that I would not send my child to again. I made this mistake. Once the communication about getting your child into school is over, it is totally over. There is no professionalism in the workers that are employed and they only look at getting thier funding from the state. Your childs education is not the most important concern. The pricipal is virtually non existent and very hard to get a hold of. You would think that the state of Texas would hold thier standards regarding our childs education a little higher than this school. I will never make this mistake again.

About the tests

TAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
