    "I'm sorry, but I cannot figure out why some of the postings here are so negative. We have had mostly positive experiences here. There have been one or two teachers that get grading done a little slowly, but they are part-time teachers in their course. I have never had a teacher ignore an e-mail, nor have I had one not return a call within a few hours of my request. Instruction is not "solely" put onto the learning coach (parent). That's a completely false statement, and frankly, we've seen teachers at brick and mortar schools who put forth very little or no effort to teach. They could streamline some of the IT functions and protocols, but overall, we are very, very happy at GACA."

    "My daughter no longer attends GA Connections Academy and instead goes to a brick and mortar public school because she wanted to have a new experience after homeschooling prior to Connections. She has had enough however and is ready to return to Connections. She feels as though she is not challenged academically and misses the flexibility doing on line school afforded her. I am giving GA Connections 5 stars because the year we went there I found it to be excellent. The teachers responded to me asap when I contacted them and I knew every teacher not only by name but by sight. I met them and spoke with them weekly on the phone and they called me not the other way around. We had Live lessons daily and I was told that there is a daily live lesson just for math for high school students. Unfortunately students cheat in brick and mortar schools too. It is up to you to want to learn and take the honorable way and not cheat. On line learning is not for everyone. Your child must be disciplined enough to handle the level of independence and you must be willing to put in the work and time as the parent/learning coach"

    "I have read many of the reviews below and while I have experienced a few of the things mentioned, I feel they did not give a full shot. You have to be patient and ask your homeroom teacher if you need assistance and be INVOLVED. I think some parents thought if you put your child in front of the computer they will magically get the whole routine and become Einstein. This is our first year and we have a couple of months to go but my child loves it. Yes, you do have to stay very involved in their studies but I did not expect someone else to do it for me. The teachers have been absolutely wonderful when I need them. If my child has an issue about anything they have worked on, I either call or write them and they will schedule a private live lesson to go over it. He LOVES the live lessons and the teachers seem to really care. My only complaint would be that it seems for all of public school curriculum is that they go from one thing to the next and not enough time for a child to absorb what they have learned. Overall I feel if you want to be part of your child education and don't mind be a little selfless to help your child succeed you will enjoy this school. :)"

    "This is our first year and it was a little rough at first but after we got the hang of things it was a lot easier. The teachers were quick to respond to any issues and were very helpful. The only think that I don't like is that is seems like they are having state testing every other week."

    "If you're looking to actually learn something....this school is not for you. It sets kids up to fail. I am in 10th grade and don't feel as though I have learned a single thing this year. I am struggling through every class, and it is not my fault. I am an honors and AP student. My gpa was 4.2 at a top rated private school last year. It's not me, it's the school. Also, just an fyi for parents, it is beyond simple for kids to cheat on tests and such. Because of the lack of instruction and poor quality of the curriculum, when you get to the tests or quizzes it is very easy to panic over extremely hard questions that you have not been taught how to answer, which leads students to resort to cheating. However, this isn't the students' fault it is not fair to ask a kid to answer difficult questions without teaching them the material prior to the test. I understand the honor code and have seen it implemented correctly, but it isn't realistic in this situation. Thanks GACA for destroying my confidence in virtual school - I've wasted an entire year on this and I'm tired of the incompetence."
