    "The school really got me ready for college because I had certain classes on certain days of the week and then getting the work done was on me. They were open everyday in case students needed help, so the way they care about their students really touched me. It was unlike any other school I've ever gone to."

    "Speaking by the teachers I had, they always went the extra mile to keep students on track. If I missed a day, they emailed to make sure I was okay and would let me have a meeting for a fast version of the lesson and give me my work. They would make sure to answer student questions completely and treat students like adults. They respect students and love their jobs which causes the students to love them."

    "Science and Spanish great, English and History bad"

    "The biology class was incredible, and the teacher inspired my passion for science that still drives me today. The Spanish teacher was also very engaging and I value my experiences and learning from it. The social scene was somewhat dull, as many students were uninterested in learning and were often quite sheltered in the way that small-town-raised children often are. (I was lucky enough to have friends outside the school who shared my passion for learning and relative social and religious open-mindedness.) One main benefit of the school was its acceptance of out-of-the-box learning trajectories--they were willing to give me credit for subjects I learned and activities I did as a homeschooler, rather than ignoring them because I did not learn them in a traditional schooling environment."

    "My experience with the teachers was quite mixed. I was homeschooled completely up until 9th grade, and beyond that I was homeschooled for subjects for which I and my parents thought the teachers at Valley Oaks were sub-par. Namely, the history teacher was quite inept, and although the English teacher was engaging she was hindered by a required curriculum that was far below my reading and writing level. So we did those subjects at home. The science and Spanish teachers, however, were wonderful, and the math teacher was decent and teaching and very engaging."
