Testimonial Thursday

It's August 16, and today we have another testimonial from one of our students.  Jessica from Illinois writes, "I really liked how the instructors used my name when they wrote comments, whether the comments were good or bad.  They seemed very personable, and I liked it."  Whenever we survey students or students write to us, most of them say their favorite thing about the American School is that we offer them the ability to work at their own pace.  After that, they share Jessica's opinion and value our handwritten, personalized comments.  No examination in any print-based course is graded by machine.  All print-based course exams are graded entirely by hand by one of our qualified instructors.  They write detailed feedback on each exam and, as Jessica said, call students by name.  It's our way of making distance education as personal as possible, and something of which we are very proud.
