  • Horrible Horrible school. I am a student with 2 fully accredited high school diplomas one from Tucson, AZ and the other out of state. And this school was so incompetent that I talked to them on the phone for 5 minutes 4 of which I was on hold and when I hung up I thought I was just on a reality TV show. They provided no help, they had no answers, the principles wouldn’t even get on the phone with me and when I tried to do the classes online they told me it was down and could be for a whole week but they don’t know. And I’m not the only one who thinks the school is a joke, ask anyone who goes to it, or use to go to it which is usually the case. Or just call the front office and prepare to be amazed!

  • The people who don't like this school are the people who were too lazy to even try. You sit at your desk all day playing games or falling asleep. I graduated to years early so it obviously isn't as terrible as your making it out to be. Grow up and don't blame the teachers for your lack of motivation. Maybe if you tried, you wouldn't all be such losers.

  • I think highly of the school. Because of it I am graduating 2 years early. It's nice how it's self pased as opposed to public schooling where your learnign rate is at the hands of the weakest link in the class. It is also nice that the days are shorter and it worked out nicelty with my work schedual because of the flexable hours. I also like the fact that you have acess to the web, for those days I just wasn't feeling so motivated I'd just look up cool stuff on the internet or search for pictures online and draw them in class. But probably the best part is that the school is driven off self motivation. This is a school for those mature enough to come in everday and work, because there won't nbe someone standing over you and baby sitting you. I think anyone who doesn't like the chool is just being naieve because you don't get to do every little single thing you want. Well here's a news flash to you: SCHOOL isn't a concerty or trip to the mall, rules and regualtion are a guarantee every where you go. In my opinion, it has it's flaws much like every school. But overall I like it very much, and am In class right now as we speak.

  • This school blows!!! the teachers are retarted and have no common sense, the princeables are ridiculessly stupid, they susspend for lame reasons, they look to get there students in trouble, the only good part about this school is you can graduate as fast as u get the workd done, however many other schools are like that, bet probably have a lot more helpful staff. if you are thinking about enrolling in this school i hope you have a lot of paitince because your going to need it dealing with the staff here.
