As someone who currently struggles with the amount of work given and a lack of responsive teachers, I can clearly advise anyone considering this for their child to GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Save your self/kids the stress and unneeded work; choose a private home school.
I'd like to thank my parent for their constant involvement in not only making sure I have a great education, but taking the time to read the sections of the textbooks to teach me things my teachers refused to educate me on. (Most topics)
With the mandatory "class sessions" that require you to download a file every day to connect to the class, an unbelievable amount of printing and scanning daily, and atleast 3 of my own personal classes giving me upwards of 7 (yes, seven) quizzes a day, I can very clearly state that yes, despite being advertised as a more approachable/organized "public school", it has too much work and causes myself, and other students to stress constantly.
Having to persistently complain and contact teachers about what you'd think would be simple solutions really does help me learn what persistence is. Grit? No. Determination? All the determination I've gained is that of my learning coach (my parent) and watching them as they stay determined to actually accomplish anything with K12's system or contact anyone within the school as to why teachers refuse to use the very contact system put into place by K12.
In all honesty there hasn't been an opportunity for me to learn anything other than how to print and scan paper assignments- despite this being an 'online school'. Improve communication between teachers and their pupils and then come talk to me about whether or not I've learned anything from them.
As stated before, this school has little-to-no credibility or responsibility whatsoever. With a lack of student-to-teacher communication and a clunky/outdated system, this school could care less if your student passes or fails.
K12 curriculum is perfectly sufficient but TXVA doesn't agree so they force student to attend their connect session which are waste of time for the most part. Khan Academy and other online service provide a much better value. TXVA also require student to use Google form to fill out weekly questions even if they've completely mastered their Unit Reviews.
