"Mommy, can I do more RemoteLearningSchool?", both my son and daughter keep nagging me. I have the reflex of getting annoyed by the nagging, but then I realize - they are not asking to play video games, or watch TikTok, or stuff like that - they are actually WANT to do something educational! Ever since we started with RLS they've been very excited about learning. They just log in on their own after school or whenever they want, and take the classes there. The classes in RLS has helped them stay ahead of the curve in all subjects offered at school, and whats more is that they have so many more special interest classes to choose from such as journalism, meteorology, entrepreneurship, etc. Also they have many other activities that interest my kid. My son is 8 years oid and goes to 3rd grade, while my daughter is 12 years old and is at 7th grade. My son has always wanted to learn to play the guitar, and he is taking the guitar classes from RLS. He is also learning to play chess online and he wants to join some competitions. My daughter has wanted to learn to play the Piano since like last year, but because of COVID we didnt want to get her to lessons. RLS recently introduced Piano classes so now she can take them. She started taking them a few weeks ago and can already play some simple songs! The classes take a step by step approach and soon she will be advancing from beginner to intermediate. They also like to participate in the various activities RLS offers. My son wrote some articles for their magazine and it was published and he got a junior reporter card which is cool. He was also 4th place in the virtual science fair, and my daughter was second place in the online talent show last year. In terms of pricing it is very affordable, you can choose between a monthly, 3-mo or 6-mo subscription, you can also purchase a lifetime membership. The monthly memberships star for as low as like $20 a month. And I appreciate that only one membership is needed for all the family otherwise this would've gotten expensive. Some programs had me pay for each child. And even though it's still just one membership, the kids still get each their own account. There's also a lot more included such as student ID card, school email account, juniorfolio, and much more. My children like the email account they've used to send emails to their grandparents who were very happy. The email comes with parental controls so I can monitor. Overall RLS is a great online school with the goal to help kids succeed in life, and I think all parents should enroll in this whether you homeschool your kids, or whether you use it as supplement to their regular school - anything less is just not enough when it comes to our children's future!
This program has everything my son needs to succeed in his education. Public school should never be enough for parents who care about their kids future. Many classes available so he never gets bored and always has more challenges. They also added a ballet and cooking class recently, all online. I also like that he gets his own free email address to use for both schoolwork and personal communication. Comes with parental controls. Also useful is the student ID which I've used to purchase him software at a discount"

Kids educational program
The school seems pretty awesome. I love the curriculum. The large number of classes available can feel overwhelming at times but it's good to have the large selection. I love the platform they use. It's user-friendly once you get over the learning curves. There's home work, projects, and contests for the kids to keep them engaged. My children's education is important and I'm glad they joined this program.
My sons love this program. One just turned 7 and is in second grade, the other is in 3rd grade. I like it that the program is self-paced and adapts to your schedule. They are also excited to have their own school email address which I let them use with the parental controls enabled. It is the first time they are using email and have already emailed their grandparents to tell them how much they loves them. Only suggestion is to make the parent portal a bit more parent friendly, however I understand they are focused on the child's learning and it is great.
Tip for consumers:
Take advantage of the school email address
Signup was simple you can enroll monthly, quarterly, or get a lifetime membership and all memberships include the whole family which was useful for me since wouldve been expensive if I had to pay separate fee for each child.
All the students also get student IDs and a free school email address. Those can also be used to get student discounts on educational software and a lot more.
There are many classes across many topics and they are always adding more.
Overall it's a very good online program am glad I enrolled my family in it, all kids are learning a lot.
Child learning classes
A virtual elementary school - all classes are online and can be taken at any time, which I found convenient. Also includes in the membership was a student ID as well as a school email address for all the kids enrolled.
What I liked best is that they don't make you pay for each kid, you buy a family membership which saved me a lot of money since I have 3 kids in my family and other online schools wanted to charge for each one.
We used RLS while we moved across country, until we could get my 4th grade daughter into a local school. We are very impressed! The classes are fun and explain things well, and the subject matter was on point. When we finally enrolled my child in local school, she nailed her math placement exam, and slid into science and social studies right where she had left off with RLS. Thank you for making this transition in states and schools so much better. Even while in public school, we plan to keep using RLS for additional classes and so that she never falls behind.
Solid online program for children. I have 2 siblings enrolled in this course. The older one, in middle school, takes this program as supplemental to his school, while the other one takes the course as a full curriculum for first grade.
They offer many classes including those not offered by other similar programs, such as virtual fitness classes, dancing, and musical instruments. My older son is taking the electric guitar class.
There's also many other cool features the program offers but my phone is almost out of battery so will end the review here thanks for reading.
Tip for consumers:
Classes are pre recorded
I was very impressed with the number of lessons and other features this school offers for the price. There's hundreds of classes for the children to choose from. It may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but there's no pressure since the students can take the classes at their own pace. And it is the variety of topics that ensures every child will find something they love - one kid may want to try the trumpet lessons, another may focus on the science classes, others on entrepreneurship and journalism.
I like it that it includes many features such as student ID card, remotelearning school email address, juniorfolio and many more. There are lots of lessons available for each grade level which the child can take according to their schedule and interest. They also learn second languages, coding, martial arts, musical instruments, and more, all is done virtually. Am using this as add-on to my kids' normal school
I enrolled both my kids who have their individual strengths and weaknesses and we use program as add-on to local school. The advisor tailored the learning portal for each kid so it matches them perfectly. Because of this they are now ahead of their class mates in their local school and other parents talked to me and I referred them here since all kids deserve a good education
My 11-yr old son actually LOVES STUDYING with this program. I can't express enough what a miracle this is. Originally, we signed up just so he can have access to the electric guitar classes, but he's sneaking into 2nd languages as well as STEM. Like I said... it's a miracle. Plus, he also now has his own school email address.
Misleading advertising: They advertise themselves as one of the most comprehensive online curriculums out there. In fact, not a single course offered by them could be considered complete. The French course comprises a total of 4 lessons. The Kindergarten Jr Math courses is a whopping 2 lessons. Ballet... 1 lesson. Korean... 1 lesson. Grade 8 Algebra... 1 lesson. There is NOTHING comprehensive about what they offer.
Fake reviews: The reviews scattered across the internet were written by the same handful of people. The vast majority of these "people" have only reviewed this "school". The photographs used by some of these reviewers are stocks photos. Alas, since the entire website, "viral" videos and instructor profiles also include stock photos this is unsurprising.
Lacks transparency: they have no sample lessons or trial period. The opportunity to try a sample, view a lesson or try before you buy is universal amongst educational sites. They refuse to answer questions on how they screen their instructors, if they screen their videos, etc. Additionally, the same "social media manager" runs an unemployment website (unemploymentpua) and a school review website (schoolrating.net). It's dishonest to not disclose these relationships, especially when you run the rating website that gives your school perfect reviews. The only interaction on social media for remotelearning.school is from the unemploymentpua account and a blatantly fake account with a stock photo.
They have now blocked my IP address from accessing their site due to my review. This doesn't look good for the company. If you aren't doing anything wrong, why would you block a user.
Before RLS, doing school with my 1st grader was like pulling teeth. NOW he wakes me up "mommy can we do remote learning school now?!". He loves it, and I love how it has given me my time back! I don't have to plan my days, he can take the lessons he wants on his own. I put in vacation dates and the curriculum is organized for the year for me. Worth every penny. A fraction of the cost compared to other curriculums out there and way more fun. It also allows us to work on the road if traveling or family emergencies pop up, we can stay on track. I'm so glad we found RL S and I'm never looking bac
We LOVE this school and the curriculum they offer. Son is in 3rd grade and absolutely loves it! He learns so much and so fast. My son struggled with many online platforms that offered curriculum and then RLS came along and everything changed for him. Learning became easy and he is now thriving. I am about to enroll my younger two in the school once they hit kindergarten age as well.
Exactly what I needed to help me make sure my kids are getting the best overall education, whole staying safe and healthy sitting these crazy times. This program gives me more confidence as a homeschool mom. Thank you for helping my kids!
I love that the lessons are available every-day and my kids can take them at their own schedule also they have the best customer service to help with any and all technical issues that may arise. The district schools program didn`t have any help and left me frustrated and stuck, but RemoteLearningSchool actually gives me the peace of mind that they are working with us for our kids education.
High quality education and friendly customer service. I enrolled my younger child here as a singular education program for homeschooling, since he is only 6 years old and has a weak immune system and am worried about him going to first grade amid COVID19. My older child who still goes to high school I enrolled him to supplement his school program because the Zoom lessons don't teach that well in his school.
In RemoteLearning school you can take classes at your own pace and schedule which I find useful in cases I have doctor's appointment or other errand in the morning.
Customer support is friendly and replies fast to any message on Facebook
Very satisfied (and so are my kids who are also learning a lot and even learning to talk French also included in this school's curriculum!)
Tip for consumers:
You can get monthly or lifetime membership
I was unable to register my son to the program because they said classes were full. I completed the registration online and paid the registration fee, then got the email that my son was admitted to the program, but around 10 minutes later I got an another email that classes are full and that to try again enrolling in 2 weeks. My fees were refunded automatically which is why I am giving 2 stars instead of 1 star. But I was really looking forward to having my son be part of the program because I've heard all the great things about it so it was disappointing to be turned away.
This is the email they sent me:
"Dear Parent, thank you for your interest in RemoteLearning.school's education enrichment program for kids ages 5-17. Unfortunately, due to high demand, the program is currently at capacity. We received a record number of enrollments this week, and we want our admissions department to give new members the full attention they deserve as a student, and our staff takes great care to assign each new student their curriculum, JuniorFolio, student ID, and more, as they begin their new learning journey with us.
We have therefore placed your son on the waitlist, and we currently estimate the wait time to be 2 weeks. Meanwhile, we are refunding any fees you paid during the registration process."
Like I said that's a disappointment since my son was eager to get his school email address and write for the school magazine and learn classes such as Korean and guitar, never seen him so excited about learning! But at least they refunded my money fast without me even having to ask. I will try again enrolling in 2 weeks I really hope I get my son in this program.
I'm doing hybrid distance/in-person learning due to high number of cases in my area and lack of mask mandate, but the way my son's public school does it is not so great and my son was having a hard time adjusting. His school district didn't know what else to do for him. My sister has been using RemoteLearningSchool for her children's education, so figured why not lets give it a go. He has been on it since August and is doing very well with it. I'm pleased with this program. It's easy navigation for both of us. The classes do good to keep his attention!
I like this curriculum because it puts my kids ahead of the public school system. They are studying through RLS in addition to their school to always stay ahead in their education, and I no longer have to worry about what happens if their regular school stops inperson studies again for whatever reason, because now we have an RLS membership and can always fall to that full time if necessary.
This school was recommended for my daughter by some friends. I needed something that she could study on her own after school especially since I had gotten pregnant with twins and was put on bed rest. This was the best choice I have ever made. She loved it, stayed in tasked and look forward to doing her work. Learning was made fun and exciting. The lessons was broken well. She now reads for enjoyment and remembers her lessons from RLS. I couldn't ask for a better school. It also allows me to get work done without staying in one place
I absolutely love this curriculum! We were faced with homeschooling during the pandemic and really frustrated with the virtual schooling provided by the district so we turned to other resources. I was informed about this curriculum through my aunt and I'm so glad I took a chance! Even now that my kids are back in school they are learning so much from this. THANK YOU!
I secured an RLS membership for two reasons: First, to enchance the education of my son and two daughters, I feel like what they learn in school is not just sufficient nowadays. Second, so that they never suffer a learning loss like what happened during the pandmic. WIth the membership I can have some peace of mind that they will always have good education accessible to them.
Easy Set up and lessons enjoyable for my children. I have 3 kids ages 14,12, and 9, attending 9th Grade, 7th Grade, and 4th Grade respectively. I very much appreciate that I only need to pay one membership fee for all kids in my household, since with other programs enrolling multiple kids can be costly, but with RemoteLearning the membership covers the entire family.
My little munchkins have been Remote Learning School students since last year during the Pandemic when public schools struggled to take off with proper remote programs. But even now, as they return to in-person school, Remote Learning School is still a must for their education. There's hundreds of lessons they can take there and many of them is stuff that is not offered at school including many second language classes musical instruments, and dance classes (all virtually, of course). My 9 yr old son is excited about learning Korean since he likes K-Pop, while my 12 year old daughter is enjoying the online ballet lessons, and my 14 year old is learning to play electric guitar. They would not have been exposed to this extra education if not for the Remote Learning School.
We have been using RLS going on 2 years. We started for our daughter's kindergarten year. We love the curriculum. We love how STEM, Arts, Civics, and much more is integrated in the curriculum. The curriculum is easy to follow and complete for both parents and students. Most importantly our daughter loves the curriculum. She loves to learn and it is always pushing her to grow.
As an independent private school, RLS is not required to follow the Common Core Standards. RLS goes beyond common core to offer a lot more. Every year, we review the RLS curriculum—every book, every assignment, every process—and modify it as needed. Our curriculum will continue to be uncommonly rigorous, inspiring, and transformative, with or without Common Core. And while our standards are rigorous, they are not rigid. We also retain the leeway to engage all different types of learners at RLS, while our curriculum so thoroughly prepares our students for all forms of standardized testing. The Common Core is focused on helping students achieve certain standards; RLS curriculum is focused on preparing students to achieve even higher standards.
RLS current list of second languages offered: Spanish, French, Chinese, Korean, with more languages to be added.
Yes, the program is entirely flexible, and the curriculum can be modified to meet the needs of individual students. The extent to which a curriculum is modified depends on the goals of the student's Individual Education Plan. For example, a student can take a class above his grade level for a topic he is particularly strong at, and could also take a class below grade level if they are struggling, and they can be put on-track to on-grade.
When a student deletes an email from his email account, it first goes to the trash folder, so I would check there, especially if it was deleted recently. After some time has passed, through, the email is purged and can no longer be restored, unfortunately. If you have parental monitors set up you can check your linked parent email account to see if there is a copy of the email there. Email our technical support department for more assistance.
RLS offers a diverse curriculum, including a lot of focus on STEM. A strong focus on STEM education is a critical ingredient for building a student's problem-solving skills and making them lifelong learners. RLS prepares students to change, adapt, and problem solve, which will ready them to face a future whose opportunities are not yet clear. STEM education is also vital due to a growing demand for workers with STEM expertise. But not only does RLS focus on STEM, we are also strong on Arts and Humanities, teaching the students empathy, ethics and citizenship.
RemoteLearning.School's Kids Education Enrichment Program (K. E. E. P) gives kids access to online lessons, JuniorFolio™, student ID, school email account, and more features to help your kids succeed and achieve their maximum potential. Our goal is to enhance and encourage learning and development and maximize the education of every child, while aiding them in achieving their highest personal potential through a remote learning program. Our lessons are best suited for kids ages 5-17. Many parents use our program to supplement their kid's regular school routine, while others use it as part of a homeschooling curriculum.
COVID-19 has brought to light the importance of having an adaptable online platform to support the children's education, particularly in times when disruptions occur to our regular schedule and routine.
The Pandemic initially forced many schools to switch to online learning. Schools were unprepared for the sudden shift of instructional methodology, resulting in inefficient teaching methods, with kids being bored and not learning much after sitting in front of their laptop for several hours. These limitations impeded student learning while also negatively affecting the development of the child as a whole.
Furthermore, it was next to impossible giving a kid the individual attention they deserve in that busy online classroom, letting some fall behind and others not utilize their full potential.
RemoteLearning.school rose to the challenge, giving kids a virtual school environment at all times, allowing them to actually learn and advance, and take advantage of their maximum potential.
As schools resume in-person studies, RLS continues to enhance youth education in parallel, ensuring that school-aged kids will never again have their education disrupted.
