Columbia Virtual Instruction Program Reviews
My complaint largely is not with the teachers or the information provided within the courses, however it can be hard to reach teachers at times. The repeating issues I had with the school was with the guidance department, as upcoming tests such as EOCs and information regarding such was often late or inaccurate. Information on SAT testing dates, in order to have the test completed, scored, and available in time for dual enrollment deadlines, was also left out and lead to many problems to work out for me and my parent; a friend of mine had the same problem. I would say the school provides a great opportunity in the arena of education and mobility, and most of the teachers try hard to give multiple opportunities to help their students succeed, but the user friendliness and competence of the administration could definitely use some work.
As far as the curriculum, it was pretty good overall, I believe it taught what was expected and reasonable. The course load was reasonable/average to slightly heavy. The beginning of the school year would start with a very light course load and would progressively get heavier, as I would expect, but continued to the point that I struggled to complete a day's tasks and started falling behind schedule, which is not the usual for me. The schedule is flexible, as should be for the point of such a school. Many classes are available, I had more to choose from than expected. Teacher help is generally readily offered, individually or during the regular week lesson summary live lessons or options of help class live lessons, however getting in contact with teachers may require lots of effort and with much time in advance.
Some teachers were easier to get along with and more welcoming than others, but this will be true any time you deal with people. There were some more strict than others, as well as those simply with higher expectations of their students than others, but I never had a teacher that I considered honestly mean. The teachers often had multiple ways to reach them, however, partly due to the nature of the school being online, there were times they were not reachable when needed.
