Overall

It is funny because the complaints on here are very representative of the problems we experienced with our public high school teachers and office staff. :-) I am thankful American School gave my child an option besides being another public school dropout. The work was harder than she had in public school and she liked working her own schedule. She especially enjoyed the extensive feedback on her assignments. People complain about the turnaround time on paperwork but that is to keep kids from trying to complete a course in one week. The teachers even pointed out when she went too fast. We also experienced a lost test, missing assignment, etc. but what we experienced wasn't a big deal. She completed the program, graduated, received her transcript and went on to be a 4.0 student in college. Public schools aren't a good fit for everyone and this program was much better than going the GED route.

I graduated 2 years early "attending" this school. Although it did take a little while to get papers back I had no other problems with them. This is a correspondence school so yes, you will need some self motivation but the rewards far outweigh the problems caused by the lack of patience a student may be feeling.

This "school" is terrible. The staff answers your call and you can hear the mood they are in. Today one of the bitter ladies hung up on me without asking if she had anything else she could help me with or even before I could say good-bye. I have been getting the same work sent back to me without any direction on how to fix it or what is expected of me aside from the word "Redo". My best advice is to look elsewhere for homeschooling. If you have any doubt I recommend you visit the office and meet the staff ....you'll be repulsed at how disgustingly they treat their students and leave.

Do Not Use This School

My Husband and I are both degreed professionals. When are son became ill and needed to complete courses at home his High School recommended The American School.We have experienced lost exams, undocumented grades,allegations by administrators and complete unprofessional conduct.Our son's school has now said other students have experienced the same. The American School's accredidation is under investigation. We still need transcripts for graduation.Wish us luck!I wish you luck if you chose this school.

Overall
Not Reccomended

I recently graduated from this home school program a year late with a 3.0 GPA. I transfered with a 3.8 GPA from public school with a year and a half of school left, hoping to graduate early. Several of my friends have used this program, and have experienced 2 and 3 year delays on graduation. The correspondance is extremely slow - they want you to only send in one exam per course at a time, waiting until it comes back to send in another, and generally take 1-2 months to return it. You can call in for help with your work, however, most times you call there won't be a teacher available, and they will rarely call you back. Most of their textbooks are comperable to a regular school system's books, however, the mathematics books are extremely complicated to read and understand. Like most home school programs, you must have excellent self-discipline, as well as the ability to comprehend concepts from written text. That being taken into consideration, overall, I have not been pleased with the experience of the American School's homeschool program.
