    "This is an amazing school because the teachers really do care, they are always striving to keep students involved and keep parents involved, they have various clubs and school activities aside from school work itself. No school is easy, so I'm not sure why one person is bickering on the work load. This school is amazing because students are entitled to a flexible schedule that works personally for them, while even if they miss out on class meetings they can still view recordings of them. Teachers and staff here work very hard to help students become the best they can be whether that be through k-mails or phone calls, they really do genuinely want the students to succeed."

    "My children have been enrolled at COVA for 9 years. The curriculum is rigorous and challenging and will give your child an excellent education - but it takes hard work on the part of the child and the parents. In the last two or three years and now that my kids are in high school, the staff has tried to be much more hands on and group participation is required. This is not our style so we will be looking for something else next year. If you put some effort in and are willing to work within the rules - your child will get a superior education at COVA."

    "COVA is by far the best choice when reviewing virtual schools in Colorado. Do not be confused or fooled by the statistics reference above, as a majority of kids (like mine) choose to attend COVA when they have tried making it work their regular school. What these websites should post is the number of times my son was bullied, beat up, or came home from school in tears last year compared to this year now enrolled in COVA. I can tell you, you'd be reading a very different overview of what this school continues to do for families like mine. My son is not afraid anymore. He enjoys interracting with his classmates. You should be ashamed of yourselves if you support the requset to deny a supporting charter, as you are denying the 4600 students who came to COVA for situaions like my son's. In addtion, I'd totally agree with those who state "you get what you put in". For High School students who are used to easier open book multiple choice exams, this isn't comparable. The curriculum is rigorous, and challenges both my son and I on a daily basis - in a good way."

    "After doing this school with 2 of my sons, one in middle school and one in high school, I can tell you it is NOT going to provide them an education. It will give your student an excessive workload, and basically prevent them from getting an A in anything because of faulty test questions that you have to complain to the teacher about to get the grade corrected (if you get lucky enough to have a teacher who will take the time and has the cognitive ability to review the question for correctness - good luck with that). Did this happen once? Yes at least once on EVERY quiz and test. This school is not for anybody."

    "This is my first year with COVA, and so far, it has been a major disappointment and an overall headache. I am a junior in the program and I can honestly say that this is one of the worst schooling programs that I have ever been involved with. I have been to private schools and public schools, as well as being homeschooled, and COVA is at the bottom of the heap. All throughout high school, I was an A student. I was in honors classes, I was excelling, and I genuinely loved school. This all changed when I started COVA. The teachers are not helpful, let alone friendly, and the majority of them seem to not even know what they're teaching. Many of the "computer scored" tests are faulty and the Spanish language program is an absolute joke. This curriculum has caused more grief between my parents and me than anything else in my life. I went from straight A's (and one B) to mostly B's. The workload is stifling. This is especially bad because this is my junior year and this is the year that colleges are looking at. I pray that this all works out. Please go with some other program, I beg you. I would NOT recommend COVA to anyone. This is absolutely my final year."
