I have been on and off the phone with so many different counselors/faculty and heard different stories every time about what needs to be done to get my kids enrolled. All of our documents were turned in and one of my kids already has a schedule... I finally got a hold of an email for the person who is "over it all" and emailed her my questions. I just received an email from her telling me that they aren't accepting new kids right now and that the high school isn't even open at this time....WHAT??? My kids are going to be very disappointed when they hear this. It would be nice if everyone here was on the same page and knew what they were talking about. VERY disappointing!
I have 4 children in Elementary, and the curriculum is phenomenal! We have been in for 3 years, and each year gets better. The teachers have all been extremely helpful, prompt , and and are so great with the kids. It is overwhelming work with 4 gifted children all in elementary, but if you want to be a huge part of your child's education, this is definitely the school for you. Their success depends on your dedication, at this stage.
If you want incompetent teachers and your student to be ignored then this iis the school for you! I have never seen such an incompetent school. My son went through 3 math teacher last year. They left and not a word was given to us that they left. Emails would go on unanswered. The principal is very snippy if you call her on this.
This school is ok if you have elementary aged students. The teachers in high school seem overwhelmed and inadequate to respond to student's needs and don't seem to care about individual students. The technology factor of submitting tests and assignments seems to fail and the teachers to don't follow up with their students. If the teacher doesn't receive the test, the student gets an F. No inquiry to see if they tried to submit the test and it didn't go through. Also, the school events they hold are aimed towards younger students, so jr high and high school students won't be interested.
My daughter is in her second year at U.T.V.A. and we love it. The curriculum is great, using the lesson plans you can go at your child's pace. It's a lot of work to start but WELL worth it!
K12 has been the BEST school for my autistic son! They give him the materials that are at his 'grade level' academically. It is at his 'pace". It is tailored just for him, and they give him material that he understands. They also have social outings, so he can still socialize with other kids. It is an AMAZING school!
