iForward is a school that falsely advertises how they work and the quality of content they provide their students. The courses here are entirely from Florida Virtual Schools' catalogue of classes, and most of them are severely outdated. iForward either doesn t update their courses or purposely purchases extremely old, ambiguous courses (some of their oldest being from 2003-2005, with dead links and grossly outdated content). The only thing that teachers do here is regurgitate the text from the FLVS coursework in their live lessons. Their robotic regurgitation is often completely verbatim, showing their own web browsers navigate the pages of our homework the entire live lesson. These live lessons are tedious and mandatory , yet it's rare to have even half the class actually in attendance. It also doesn't help that the teachers have virtually no personality, since their only purpose is to fulfil iForward s advertising of live classes. Overall, my experience with iForward has been completely negative. There is a very high level of incompetence, false advertising, and false hope here at iForward.

This school district runs an online middle and High School program called iForward Wisconsin. They will promise you the moon to get you to enroll but it once you are in it won;t take long to realize there are some pretty big issues. This school is on its 4th owners in 3 years. Its been horribly mis managed and now as iForward has almost NO accountability. The Principal is manipulative with students and while comes off as being a super nice guy is far from it once you take a stand or stand up to his attempts to coerce you. Then you become a target . The Administration was warned by students about this 2 years ago and chose to keep this person in that position despite the many complaints they received. This same person has threatened students to try to keep them from coming forward with a concerns about teachers . They will tell you there are lots of in person activities but they are lying. The courses are substandard with numerous issues and even grammatical errors in the course work itself. Be warned! A high number of students do not graduate on time due to mistakes the school makes but are not held accountable for. Choose another program before its too late!

Principle/Dean have their favorites, don't care about the minority or the people who need help, and when you confront them about it, they tell you that you are just trying to seek attention, and the principle will tell you, "I know what game you are playing, and it won't work here." As a former student, I NEEDED that help, and when I tried to get it, I was rebuffed. Instead I transferred schools, and since have gotten my diploma and degree.

this school emphisizes way too much on home ec., (2 hours per school day of sewing and making high fat foods, come on) also, they do not expect much from students. they pretty much get girls ready to be homemakers, and the boys to be factory workers, very sad!!

My school should be the best in the country. There is great staff, great students, and a great school.

I have found that my education at Grantsburg has prepared me aptly for the intellectual rigors of college and a career in education, and I am grateful to the community and the staff at Grantsburg for guarding that education for future students.

As we all value the resources provided to our schools, it is disturbing when the school includes ciriculum that attempts to further falsehoods, and is ultimately wasteful of our students' time and effort. Factually, we can prove evolution through the most simple demonstrations. This school includes creationism as part of its cirriculum stating that it is to be used as an 'alternative' to evolution.
