My son is currently enrolled in Penn Fosters online HS program. We made the decision to home school him for HS. There were many reasons. Our local HS has over 1200 students. The students to teachers ratio is way too high. Peer pressure is crazy, and even though we never home schooled we felt it would be better for him than going to the HS. He is in 9th grade. It is January and he started in September. He has already earned 5 credits of the 21.5 needed to graduate. He was able to choose a regular HS diploma or a diploma focused on a trade or career he is interested in. So, his electectives are all focused on the career path he chose. So far we have no complaints! I researched online HS's. You have to be careful because most of them are not accredited. Penn Foster is. Therefore, he is able to use his diploma to get into college. He is doing well, and is much happier being home schooled than going to HS. I would recommend Penn Foster HS to any parent who is concerned about their child going to HS with all of the issues going on today. As I stated, I researched for months and this is the school that came out on top.
this schools the best
They're really helpful. My parents did not want me to attend a traditional high school due to the massive issues present in them. It was hard to find an all-girl high school, and at the same time, my parents didn't want to deny me my education. Then, as if a message from heaven, my mom met a women whose daughter was enrolled at Penn Foster High School. I then called the girl and got the information I needed. Penn Foster High School has been a very pleasant experince for me. I learned a lot of things, and the student services are great. I would recommend Penn Foster to anyone who wants a decent education experince while at home- I have actually recomended it to two of my very close friends and they too loved it.
So I have not been the best student and fell under the spell of peer presure lots of partys and major lack of interest. After speaking with friend in a moment of clarity at a meeting I realized I could continue to be dumb and go no where or do something about it. With some help I contacted Penn Foster High, they quickly help me figure out what classes I needed to complete my diploma. The cost was reasonable and I felt proud that I did do something about my life other than be a loser. I worked hard to get on a better path and Penn Foster was there for me. I thank them for that.
With my Penn Foster High School Diploma I was easily accepted into college without any problems. My experience with Penn Foster was wonderful. The instructors were always there when I needed them. The program material was always sent out in a timely manner and taking the exams online was really easy. It was exciting to get the results right away. I enjoyed the program and will recommend it to anyone who might be interested.
