My experience with JMHS was Phenomenal, the staff were great. Since graduating from their fine institute, I have received more job opportunities and advancement in my career to benefit myself. I would highly recommend those who are serious in making a change to attend JMHS.

We have home schooled fora few years through various programs. This is by far the absolute worst program I have seen. The customer service is terrible. It takes a minimum of a week to get anything resolved and the typical answer is "the system will not allow us to do that." My son was in the middle of Spanish II when they took his course off line. After two week, they loaded a new course and said they changed the book so he would need to start over! That was after working on Spanish II for 6 weeks! After arguing with them for numerous days, they finally transferred his work over to the new course so he didn't have to start over. When we contacted his math teacher for help, she referred us to a power point that she had done.
When I contacted her and said we couldn't hear her speak, she doesn't speak on the power point videos because her dogs are too loud. So the geometry videos have no sound. Run as fast as you can from this school.

My overall experience has been great! I started this program long ago while I was a minor, fell behind on my payments and halted my education. Months later of Having my daughter I immediately wanted to continue my education, I needed to prove to my daughter that an education is very important. Once I renrolled everything went great, the teachers were fantastic; there was maybe two teachers that I had trouble with getting in touch with in a timely manner but that issue was resolved. The school prepares you for college and I cannot thank James Madison High School enough for their awesome faculty geered to help their students in any way. As excited and proud that I am, I am a JMHS 2019 Graduate. I recommend this school to anyone looking to continue their education, though times may be overwhelming but it’s well worth it.

The school itself isn't bad at all... The only problem (which isn't really a problem) is that the classes aren't live, they don't even have live lessons once a week anymore.

Update - I am happy to say that JMHS really jumped in to resolve our issue. Thank you! Timely response online and they did everything they could to locate our transcript (which had been sent but without student ID number... so slowed down the process).
We are a little over a week into our JMHS experience and it has been highly disappointing so far. We have been trying to track down a transcript that our prior high school confirmed was emailed roughly a week ago. JMHS agents are rude on the phone and do not provide any assistance, they simply say wait 48 hours - yet still no feedback. Ticket was submitted but is unanswered. We have emailed our student's advocate and will give them a day or two to respond and then we will have to consider withdrawing and requiring a full refund.

After several weeks of waiting for my child's entry exam to be received and graded, I called James Madison, to speak to yet again another customer service rep that didn't have any knowledge of what was going on. I was placed on hold for them to come back with "call back on next week", "call back on Wed. we may have it then" "give them a week to grade and put it in the system". Lie after life after lie. Another week pass, I call, and I get the genius name Lewis a very rude, argumentative customer service rep. Einstein thought he was really telling my mom off and refused to help her resolve the ongoing situation with the entry exam. On top of that, after several calls to add my mom, they added a wrong name and Lewis gave my mom the business when she called to check the status of the entry exam that they didn't get after 3 and half weeks of waiting. (And these are the people that are supposed to assist with our problems...) Nevertheless, this pitiful excuse for a customer service rep Lewis, had absolutely no idea how to help me resolve our ongoing problem with the school receiving a piece of mail. In the meantime, we're sending email after email to their register, because that is the only form of communication you have, when we are transferred to the register dept. all we get is hung up on. No one answers the line no matter if they dropped the ball on their end or not, you can only send a email. The register dept email you back and say the issue is resolved even if it's not. These people don't care about your child learning. Every customer service rep has a different protocol that they follow. Looking at how many times we've had to call the school, and not one thing has been corrected, it looks as though there is no protocol. They say what they think sound good. Finally, I was able to speak to a supervisor named James, he was concerned about all the wrong things. No one at James Madison wanted to accept the fact that there is a serious problem with the way they have messed up and how they have handled ALL OF OUR ...CONCERNS. I mean ALL OF THEM! Now they want us to pay for a notary for my mom to be added to the account when the other customer service rep put in the wrong name, the name they have on file, no one in our family have that name. My mom was placed on the account over 2 months ago...

This school only cares about money and they are a scam.
Review by MrMulti1 year ago
The online diploma is not accepted by any colleges or military. This is a useless program, don't waste your money. There are outrageous cancellation charges. You have 5 days to cancel, however it takes 10 business days to review a transcript from another school. Then you pay $200 to cancel a month after you pay $350 to enroll!!

Great experience! Very easy to contact instructors. Test results are sent to you immediately after test is sent in. Highly recommended
Review by Kirklin1 year ago
The school work itself isn't bad, but good luck trying to get someone to care about your concerns on trying to finish quickly. It takes 7-10 days just to get someone to assess a failed course, and then 5 more days to remediate and god forbid you need help in that time, 5 days for a ticket to be found, always shutting down, always same excuses when needing things to be expedited. There is good people at this school, but the school setup completely sucks.

It's a great school program , just as credited as any public highschool. Tutors and customer service are very nice. Recommend it but pay attention to your grades , they count for college.

I love the idea of work at your own pace. Our lives are busy. Trying to fit in something extra can be difficult. I wish the website was more compatible with apple products. I found that the site doesn’t always work or if it does not able to pull up everything I need.

Review by Sovego Swentzel1 year ago
James Madison High School is the biggest trap you can get yourself into. No one answers your questions right or on time, everyone gives you different information and numbers, they are rude and not helpful whatsoever. I only needed 4 credits to graduate and they made me take over 20 classes and spend over a grand just to waste my time and money and not teach a thing. The "school" is a joke and their staff treats it like one.
Review by Letitia Filusonoks1 year ago
James Madison not only helped me reach my dream of being a high school graduate but it also allowed me to work at my pace.. Fast or slow. The teachers and staff are all amazing and very helpful!

Review by Gygla Hydrant1 year ago
Prefect if you are looking for a school that is based off of your on schedule this would be the right school for you. I transfered my credits over had to repeat a couple of classes over bit because I am self driven I flew through all of those courses. The courses our challenging but simple to understand so you are learning here I enoyed the classes that you have to write papers on but for people don't like this they have grammarly app that get you through the processes smoothe!!! I did all of this while working a full time job so it is very well possible for working people as well as stay at home parents etc.
