Recommended Posts

If any of you are worried that the subject material that you child is learning in a Filipino School are not quite up to par, here are two links that you might want to check out.

IXL Math and English costs about 74$ a year for your child to access all the required material of his or her age group. You can tailor the standards based on a particular US state, DOD Schools, or if you must, common core.

 

The exercises and tests are interactive and keep track of your child's strengths and weakness and how he or she is progressing.

I have purchased a year membership for my Filipino American son at IXL Math and English because I don't feel that the quality of education that he is receiving in the private school he attends is up to international standards.

 

When my son is ready for grade 9, I plan to enroll him at IUHS, so that he may have a US High School diploma and attend college in the US.

too bad its not Purdue instead  lol (purdue grad here)        but seriously  they can be good but it takes an enormous amount of family and personal discipline to finish online coursework.    If you have that discipline then great.  

 

Florida has one too

Thanks. This is really good to know. As the kids get older, I do want to expose them to other educational systems. Might be distance learning, but I'm kind of partial to summer abroad or other types of experience that offers a real international experience. I think Australia and Taiwan were getting very big on distance learning as well.

I have read on this forum that some members are considering home schooling. If they are, what better way to do it than a tested, quality program that results in an internationally recognized high school diploma that would enable the child to be accepted to colleges worldwide?

 

A few administrative errors I made that I'd like to correct. 

 

1) The price for IXL math and English is $79.00 a year not $74 as I had previously stated.

 

2) You can tailor the content, curricula and academic standards for Australia, UK, Singapore, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India, and EU member nations, as well as the US.

 

Disclaimer: I don't receive any commissions and or discounts on my son's fees, if you decide to give it a try.
