Review for New Heights Educational Group, Defiance, OH, USA
New Heights Education
This essay is going to pertain the experience that I had with New Heights Educational Group.
Before I had started out with New Heights, I was in and out of public school and charter schools. I was learning faster than other students and I was unable to go on with class assignments, or further my education on my own. I have been looking at other schools that would be able to extend my education and speed the process up with my graduation. Pamela and I have been friends for quite some time. In 2004 Pamela was my 4-H director and was able to send me on the right track! Pamela had referred me to New Heights Education in Mid-October, after she read my status on Facebook, about my experience with charter schools. I was going into New Heights Education totally blind folded and had no idea what this was going to lead me to.
New Heights Education is a very unique homeschooling program, because it allows a student to work at his or hers own pace to achieve their goals. New Heights base their schooling on “hours”, basically a student is given their subject that they are required by state to take and it is up to the student to complete their “X” amount of hours that was agreed upon to. I set up a meeting to speak with Pamela about the options that New Heights had to offer their students, and I was very impressed with her open library and curriculum that she has available for kids to borrow throughout their school year. Pamela was very understanding when it came to talking about subjects that I was not so good in. I mentioned that I was a little weaker in my math class than I was in my other classes, she arranged a personal tutor for me that I would work with a few time a week, which was helpful. The enrollment process was very fast and easy to understand, I was able to work in my assignments within a week or two. I would keep in touch and email Pamela at the end of each week and tell her what I had accomplished that week. I was able to take all of my classes that I was taking in my public school, which was such a help! I was doing at least 20-25 hours of school work every week and letting Pamela know when I had completed a course.
Pamela has helped me in a very tremendous way; I was able to achieve my goal and graduate a year early nearly making a 3.5 GPA the whole way through. Pamela was always an email a way and was very positive and done her best with questions and concerns. What I had experienced with New Heights Educational Group will forever be an amazing memory, and I thank Pamela for sharing her home school with me, it truly had a positive impact on my life and I’m glad that I took this wonderful opportunity in my life.
