Thanks to all our parents! We would not be where we are today without you!
The CONNOR GRIFFIN FAMILY TESTIMONIAL
In 2012, our son, Connor was twelve years old and beginning his sixth grade year in mainstreamed elementary school. Every day, we dropped him at the curb to go to class, was a kick in the gut. We would wait to hear who said or did what when he would trudge to the car in the afternoon. Connor is aspergers, and although on the mild spectrum, he suffered daily from that ‘handful’ of kids that just couldn’t seem to keep their manners in check. Many details and stories that I wouldn’t waste time or energy telling anyone about, but the time had come. We had to find a better fit for him.
Our search began in our hometown. Looking for specialized schools that would fit his needs, and yet not make him feel like an outcast. We were willing to drive however long and/or far necessary and pay what we could to try to make his education a fruitful one, hopefully with some fun and friends thrown in. Needless to say … nothing ‘fit’!
At the end of our rope, a friend recommended a school that was brand new to my ears, and eyes! WiloStar3D! An ‘on-line’ school. “Hmmm, well let’s take a look. Thank God”, literally!! Our son’s education took a turn we never dreamed of. This was something completely out of our wheelhouse. We never dreamed that we would be able to receive this kind of connection (no pun intended) . A connection with teachers, classmates, and a new kind of education that was a fit from day one. Hands on, and a new learning adventure everyday!
That was seven years ago. Our son is now nineteen, and graduating with his class of 2019, with pride and dignity. The help he received from everyone at Wilostar3D, from classes that were tailored for his needs, to a staff that goes so far above and beyond to make sure that, as long as the effort is there, failure is not a word in their vocabulary! Strange, that even though he hasn’t ‘yet’ met anyone face to face, he has friends and a support system that we believe will go far beyond his graduation. He’s ready to take that next step – becoming a fully functional part of society. We’re all ready for that next chapter, but “WOW”, what a ride! Thank you Wilo, thank you ……….( long list of AmAzInG individuals) for helping to make Connor’s school years a time to treasure!
With Grateful Hearts! The Griffin
I cannot say enough good things about the team we call Wilostar3D. My son’s light bulb is just now starting to glow thanks to the his hard work and the many Wilostar3D team members that have supported him during his first year. This team includes the students themselves, as my son has called on many of them to help him during the building phase of the assignments. He has made many new friends and actually looks forward to going to conference. His teacher answers his questions in a timely manner and directs him instead of giving him the answer. She is very patient with the teenagers and allows them to speak their mind as long as it is respectful. She encourages the kids creativity and actually comments on almost all of the assignments. Thank you WiloStar!
WilosStar3D is a major blessing in my son’s and families life. A few years ago he became sick with a severe spinal condition that kept us in an out of hospitals. Our lives changed dramatically. This made his academic life hard to manage as well. We both began to research schools again. I feared going back to a public or private school would only set him back. We were already nearing another school year and I went to several schools and just felt aimless in my search. I decided there has to be something else and kept searching. That’s when I stumbled upon Wilostar3D Academy. It had everything that matched my son in one total package. I rushed with my laptop in hand to show my son what I was seeing online and he even couldn’t believe it. We sat down together and dissected WiloStar3D’s website. I was amazed. I had to think a day over it and reread the mission statement thinking this was too good to be true. I decided to call WiloStar3D and was surprised to get Janet Hale, founder and president, on the phone. Mrs. Hale was wonderful at answering all my questions. I was very impressed by her passion, professionalism, and vision. I was reassured that Wilostar3D was the right fit for my son. Not only am I impressed in what the school stands for and the teachers involvement, but how it has made my son change tremendously. Not only is he academically challenged, but he uses all the computer essentials that will aid him in the future. WiloStar3D is just an exceptional school for any child regardless of a medical condition. WiloStar3D takes homeschooling to a whole different level. We appreciate everyone that makes WiloStar3D happen!
This is our first year with WiloStar3d Academy and we couldn’t be happier. We have homeschooled since the beginning and wanted to find something accredited and challenging for our daughter to do for her high school years to help prepare her for college. Being artistic and creative, she struggled with standard school curriculum. She always did well, but never enjoyed school until now. Since enrolling in WiloStar3d, she has blossomed and thrived. Believe it or not, because of their creative approach, she is actually retaining the things she’s learning! She has thanked us time and again for enrolling her in WiloStar3d. Their creative and hands-on approach to education is truly a breath of fresh air.
Not only are we thrilled with the unbelievable education she is receiving, we have been pleased with the administration and how quickly they handle our questions and concerns. They have worked with us on every level and have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help us.
For any parent with a student who enjoys learning in a creative, exciting and nurturing environment, WiloStar3d is the place for your child. Thank you WiloStar3d for helping to make our daughter’s education an extremely positive experience for her. Words cannot express our gratitude to you.
Wilostar3D has been a God-send for our family. For years, we have tried a variety of schools, public and private, trying to find a good fit for our son. Although he is very smart, it was difficult for him to learn in a traditional school setting.
The structure of Wilostar3D, along with the ability for us to monitor the assignments regularly, were just what we were looking for. In addition, since our son is such a computer oriented individual, we knew this would be the perfect fit. Our son’s grades have turned from D’s and C’s to A’s and B’s. Grades aside, our son’s attitude and confidence have improved beyond our expectation. The constant battle over homework is gone. In addition, we finally feel like he is learning instead of constantly trying to find a way out of school work. This last summer, our son used his 3D building skills to build worlds for an online game. Although my husband is a high school teacher, we will be continuing our son’s education through graduation at Wilostar3D. Thank you Wilostar3D for providing a successful yet fun environment for our child to become the star we know he is.
