I love the K-2 math, language, reading, spelling. At about 3rd grade, the teacher help books seem to disappear and all that is available is answer keys. It seems they expect you to get the teaching DVD because there is this underlying tone that they don’t think parents can/should teach but the homeschool market is too lucrative to ignore, so they funnel you into needing the teaching dvds. Also, their sales reps never have the teacher books available to look at at conventions, so you don’t really know if you are getting what you need when you order. We don’t use any of it after 2nd grade because of these frustrations.

One last note, we found the scope too narrow and the sequence too fast in the math. Another reason we moved away from Abeka.
