Stanford Online High school has offered my daughter a level of academic challenge she has never experienced and she is loving it! The teachers are enthusiastic and caring. The course material is well thought out and students will definitely be prepared for any future academic endeavors. Stanford is also doing a great job at focusing on the social-emotional aspects of high school life with great advising, counseling, and mentorship as well as a plethora of club and activities. It's an excellent school that I wish we had found sooner.

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.
I'm a fourth-year part-time senior at Stanford OHS, but I always feel that OHS is a full-time job. Academics are extremely rigorous, but so many resources are available, from instructor office hours, the internet, our peer tutoring system, etc. The key to succeeding at OHS is being a self-motivated learner and taking advantage of those resources.
The only major issue I perceive facing OHS currently is the administration; admin roles have been somewhat in flux in recent years, resulting in poor communication between admin and the students. Hopefully, admin infrastructure will be able to restabilize soon.
That being said, OHS students are some of the most diverse, intelligent, driven, ambitious, but also kind and friendly people I know. The OHS culture is not cutthroat competition; we support each other and believe that building each other up rather than tearing each other down is how we will succeed. I wouldn't trade my OHS experience for anything.
