We've enjoyed using this for our first year. I like the control I have to change things how we need it, while still having it planned out for me. And my child is doing well, learning to love math and reading again.

It's a very comprehensive, Christian curriculum that is computer-based, auto-grading (for the most part), easy to use, and did we mention we love it!?! The kids love the videos and the games, along with the variety of activities. We will definitely continue using this curriculum.

SOS was a blessing to my family. My son really enjoyed using the computer and everything is all laid out for you. You can customize your school year any way that is best for your family. Subjects were very thorough and fun!

Made math easier with the help of the teaching videos. My son gets it even though I may not get something right away. He can handle this program by himself. I am just around if he has a question. Makes him use critical thinking which I like. I enjoy the multi choice idea. He can type but with this, typing is not a requirement. I like how every accessories are included. You don't have to have your own calculator, dictionary etc it's included. It also includes tidbits of other subjects such as bible, history, important facts. My son loves it. We will stick with this curriculum.

I purchased SOS 3rd grade Science and LA for my son. I was hoping for something that he could do independently. I didn't realize that the science piece still required experiments. Also he was not proficient in typing so it was hard for him to complete many of the LA requirements. Also the novelty of the computer quickly wore off and he found it boring.
