Maybe this whole program isnt a real rip off, but I sure do believe that it is ignorant people with a learning disability cannot use their highschool program, to get there degree.

In fact, mine is only a small LD. As it is just in math.
Just thought I should let everyone know this is a RIP OFF!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

James Madison

AUTHOR: Moni - (U.S.A.)

I graduated from JM a couple of years ago and found the study very useful. It is distressing to hear that they refused someone because of a disability. All I can say to the writer from Pennsylvania is that if you are getting the diploma to attend college, you should investigate (((competitor's name redacted))); they DO NOT require a high school GED or diploma beause their course of study is based on competency and not grade averages. There courses are all accredited and done on line at your own pace. I am graduating with a BSc in a couple of months!

sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company, ..plus, if you post a competitors name more than likely they will show up on search engines as a Rip-off! - - your comments on this policy are welcome. CLICK here to see why Rip-off Report, as a matter of policy, deleted either a phone number, link or e-mail address from this Report. In this case we removed an alleged competitor's name

#2 UPDATE Employee

reasons?

AUTHOR: Jmhs Teacher - (U.S.A.)

It is about liability. In a traditional high school, LD students are protected by IEPs (documents that state specific modifications that a teacher must make). In the online format and possibly correspondence courses, modifications are hard to enact. There is no LD teacher to help the graders/teachers when the work is submitted. That is likely your reason.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Hmmmm..? Maybe it is. it is wrong for them not to let the LD students have a chance

AUTHOR: Lillian - (U.S.A.)

Hmmmm..? Maybe it is.

I just want to know that I work for this company. And I do believe also that it is wrong for them not to let the LD students have a chance.


This program is a rip off, but unless you have a LD you wouldn't know it!

#4 Consumer Comment

There may be a good reason for this.....

AUTHOR: Melody - (U.S.A.)

Distant learning may not be a good idea for the LD student. They may need a more interactive education. Distant learning is difficult at times even for the person with no disability...

anyway here is a quote from James Madison HS website.....

"Special Education Students:
Students with special educational needs, and students who have previously taken special education courses, are NOT eligible to attend James Madison High School. However, students who have been placed in special education for nonacademic reasons (such as health or behavioral issues), will be considered upon submission of appropriate documentation (such as IEP or exam results). James Madison High School reserves the right to cancel from our program any student with special educational needs."
