I started with American School later in school year, but quickly managed to catch up because of their easy to use online system. Functioned well on browsers, organized, with many add-ins that helped a lot to track progress and plan study. The level was normal.
Most of the teachers are v. helpful, prompt to answer, genuinely interested in helping the students (esp. those in math-based courses).
Improvements: I feel, in the online system, the students should be able to move from one exam to the next, even if the teacher has not graded the last. It is a problem when one cannot keep going at their pace, and have to lose the rhythm, because many teachers grade slowly (because they have a lot to grade). This may be ingrained online and impossible to change, but worth mentioning.
I feel that at least the maths should be offered with a book included. Doing everything online for mathematics based courses isn't the same as for others, and would be vastly improved by the addition of a textbook!

American School constantly works to better their curriculum - these efforts can be seen and have added tremendously to their success. I would also say that their instructors, administration, and counselors have become more accessible over the years that I have been in contact with them. American School definitely played a huge role in who I am today, so much so that my two siblings have gone through the program as well - one who will be graduating shortly! I highly recommend the college preparatory program from the American School.
I liked being a part of American School because it gave me the flexibility of being able to school whenever I wanted. This allowed me to work other things that were important to me, like work and spending time developing hobbies, while still getting school done. It helped prepare me for college because I had to be disciplined and work on my coursework without anyone else telling me to do it, as that’s how it works in college.
