Stanford Online is a marketing machine and that is their focus. Their focus is not kids. Tuition is high. $4500/class. Johns Hopkins is less than $1k. Think before you commit. Guidance is ONLY FOR FULL TIME STUDENTS! Don't think your $13,500 tuition for 2-3 classes will get you help from guidance. It will not. Your kid will not get to know teachers. How could they? It is an ONLINE school. How will your kid get good college recommendations from teachers they don't even know and might never have met? My kid is a senior and asked a teacher to write a recommendation letter. He said no. After teaching my kid 3 classes, and my kid got A grades, he said no. THINK before you commit. What makes this school worth the extra tuition? Having had classes at other online schools and at OHS I can tell you the biggest difference is tuition. At least other online schools don't pretend they care about your kid.
Review Stanford Online High School
My daughter has found her learning community- an exceptional group of students and educators pushing the boundaries of educational technology! The classes are rigorous and the students are competitive, but also kind, engaged, and respectful. While the schedule can be grueling, most students thrive in the OHS environment because they feel like they are learning so much that the hours laboring away are well worth it. Even for highly gifted students, getting straight A's at OHS is difficult. Students, however, seem to care more about the effort they put in to a class, and the passion they have for learning than the grade received. All in all, I would highly recommend Stanford OHS!
OHS is a very academically challenging school. The entire staff provides ongoing resources to make every student successful and prepared for homework, quizzes, tests, midterms and finals. Students interact on a regular basis during class and are encouraged to participate in class discussions, problems, answers etc. My daughter loves OHS!
