Original review: Nov. 8, 2018

I didn’t like the public school system that my child was in. I didn't like the way that the students were treated or the way that things were dealt with in that facility. We tried K12 but they were so rigid with the times and they scheduled times when you had to be in class. And at that time, I worked outside of the home and that didn’t work for me because I wasn’t gonna be there for my kids when they had to be online. So, I decided to go with Epic because they give you a true homeschool experience where you do things at your own pace. Their enrollment process was done online and wasn't hard at all.

My child is currently enrolled with Compass and Greg, her teacher, has been amazing and extremely helpful. Any time you need help, he’s right there. And if you ask him something and he doesn’t know the answer, he will find out and get back to you within minutes. Also, the quality of education that Epic offers is great. We've been with them for more than five years now and I’m happy with them. I recommend them all the time.

My child didn't like the public school and he wanted to do online school. He re-enrolled at Epic and they succeeded on it. I also agree with the education that they provide there and it was good. The staff at Epic has always helped me really well and the enrollment process was easy. Epic provides a great opportunity for kids to graduate instead of going to school when teachers don't really help them out in school. I'd recommend Epic to anybody.

The public school where we are at is terrible. It's one of the lowest in the country, and my son wasn't learning anything. The class sizes are very large, and the kids are out of control. I looked at online schooling and I liked Epic's curriculum better than the others. I liked that I had access to a teacher anytime I needed one, and I liked that my son could get a hold of a real person for instructions instead of having to do it online.

My son had the same teachers since we started. This is our third year, and we love her teacher. My son was 13 when we started. Now, he's 16. So, it's kind of a weird spot with kids, and she's been very good at figuring out what will work for him at the time, and it's worked. At the public school, my son wasn't in any kind of a problem. He realized the other kids in the class weren't, so he quietly sat back in the back of the room and did whatever he wanted, except for schoolwork. And his teacher at Epic has managed to get to know him well enough to make learning interesting, so that he wants to do it. My son's in tenth grade and he's been in everything. He's doing SAT prep mainly, but he's also doing Geometry. The quality of education that Epic offers is absolutely wonderful. It's a wonderful program, and I'd suggest it to every one that would listen.

With a lot of bad stuff going on in schools, I decided to enroll my son to an online school. So now, he is in seventh grade with Epic, and he’s taking Math, English and Social Studies. I feel like he's getting good quality education through Epic and he’s having a better time now than when he was in public school. He can also concentrate on his work as opposed to worrying about things going on with other students. And though there was a lot of questions online when I got him enrolled, my experience with the Epic staff has been really good. Plus, my son’s teacher has been great. She's been his teacher for the last couple of years, and she keeps in contact with me. She knows that I work a lot, so I don’t even get to attend some of the meetings that they go to, and she keeps me thoroughly informed. She lets me know if my son is lacking in an area and she even calls and lets me know when he is doing well. She really wants to see him succeed.

My daughter was in an extracurricular activity and some of the kids there were homeschooled. They went through Epic, and they talked about how they liked it. The enrollment process was easy but Epic was a little hard to get ahold of at first. But as soon as I got ahold of them, they sent a teacher out. He helped me all through it. We've been with Epic for four years now and my daughter has the same teacher all throughout. His name is Greg, and he is very good and thorough. Any time my daughter needs help, he's always there.

Original review: Oct. 22, 2018

We really like Epic. We got our daughter enrolled there as we were having concerns about her peer group and a specific teacher from her school. She was coming home emotional almost every day. I have a family member who felt that they were having the same problems from the same school. And they were in Epic. I was also talking to other people, who thought that we should go to Epic, and so they advised and we gave it a try. We were told about a teacher named Ms. Sam and so I reached out to her. We did our face-to-face with them, and she told me all about the school. And I liked her, but I was picky kind of parent, and my daughter was in California. So, I needed to wait till she came back so she can meet with the teacher to see if she liked her.

When my daughter came back from California, we did a face-to-face, and she said that she wanted to give it a chance. She liked Sam too. So we gave it a try and since then, it’s been good. Enrolment wasn’t as cumbersome as I thought where we have to go and stand in line. We just brought everything to Sam and then faxed stuff over. Meeting Sam was a blessing. She is really understanding and encouraging. My daughter wants to graduate early, 16 and a half, and I don’t have to make her do her work like a regular brick-and-mortar school. The rule is to wake up, latest is 9:30, get dressed like in a school, and then log on. And she likes it. She just gets up, does what she needs to, and her grades are really good, she’s got A’s and B’s. So, I was like, “It’s just where’s Epic all this time?” School comes easy to her, so it’s not like she has to make an effort because she was in a gifted program.

I like the flexibility as well as the quality of education offered through Epic. They have a good curriculum and my daughter likes the way the spreadsheet is. The program works for her, and it seemed like things are happening. She can actually go through and work on things. We’re looking for more science hands-on activities though. Her passion is science, and those classes are the opportunities that I don’t want her to miss out on. She also wants to be able to enjoy other activities, specifically to go to prom. And I’d really like it for the kids to have more sociable interaction.

We have opportunities outside but I think my daughter was just looking to connect with individuals that are going to Epic. I think she would have a perfect world if she was able to get some students from Epic and then just hang out. Other than that, we're happy with Epic. I’d recommend it. And I would recommend Sam for everybody. My daughter also raves about the tutor, Daniel. She really loved him.

My daughter is very academic but socially, she wasn’t enjoying school. So online schooling is a perfect experience for her. Epic Charter Schools gets my daughter right into the academics instead of having to worry about the intimidating things in high school that were troubling her socially. I’ve met with the teacher, Sarah, and she’s amazing. She comes in person when you first meet her, and she’s very helpful and thorough. We met with her at our house and she hooked us through all the enrollment online. She is also very accessible and adaptable to work with my daughter if she has any challenges in a certain class. So it’s a great program and I’m very grateful for it. My daughter's experience has been fantastic. It's unbelievable. The quality of education is great too. This is my daughter's second year and we've had nothing but great results all along the way. She's making really good grades.

Epic is a good fit for our family. We have some social issues that we are trying to avoid and we also have a child with severe allergies, so we're afraid to put her in school. There is a little bit more flexibility and freedom in Epic. They're in the K12 program, so we don't have to check in every day. As long as we got the work done, we are fine. That works with us better 'cause we do quite a bit of traveling. When we enrolled our children, we filled out the online form and the process was very quick and simple. We have three children in Epic. We have a kindergartner, a second grader, and a seventh grader. Our current teacher is Angela and we interact with her the most. She is beyond amazing. We had a previous teacher that was not working for us so we switched to Angela. The quality of education in Epic is great and I would recommend them.

My daughter was having difficulties in large settings. Epic Charter is more at her setting and it is easier for her to operate. Their enrollment process was really easy and the teachers were really open with her in helping her. However, the thing that made it a little difficult for her was how some of the things were way above her learning at that time. It made her kinda fall back and get a little frustrated. Still, Epic's quality of education is really good. My daughter's experience has been good.

Original review: Oct. 8, 2018

I have homeschooled my kids since they were born and did it all on my own. However, with having five kids, became a little overwhelming for me, so we enlisted the help of Epic Charter Schools. We had friends that were involved in Epic and they gave it high reviews. The enrollment process was mainly sitting down with a computer system and the teacher, answering questions, filling out information to help the teacher better understand where our kids were, and also talking together about goals and agreeing with the teacher. The questions were mainly personal and there was a one-on-one questioning with the teacher and online questions.

Though we haven't had a whole lot of interactions with the teachers at Epic except on testing days, working with them has been a really good experience. The teacher is very personable. She works very closely with the kids’ learning styles and makes adjustments whenever needed. She really helps my kids make the adjustment into a more structured school system and to succeed. My kids are doing a more individualized path, a different curriculum that works well for them, and they are in age-appropriate classes. I believe they are getting an excellent education.

Last year, one of my sons was having a lot of trouble and we ended up going through some testing and determined that he had some special needs, so we changed teachers. The whole process has been wonderful. They have really worked with us and the new teacher is a better fit for him, and the program is working really well. I really value this opportunity and I hope that nothing hinders this education we experienced for my kids in the future. There have been some comments about federal funding, but I really hope that it does not affect Epic negatively because it is a really good program.

We have always homeschooled our children. We were with K-12 and it was good, but it was over the top and a lot of it was just repeated. We were told that Epic was a good school, so we tried it and were very pleased. Plus this was something that was accredited and convenient. My son's been in it and this is his second year. I really like the teacher that's been assigned to him. They're willing to help and the workload isn't so much. At K-12, it was a 9-hour day behind the desk and it was horrible. Meanwhile, Epic is flexible and my son is learning. If I need something, they never give me any trouble. They do what they say they're gonna do. They're also quick. If there's a problem technically, they fix it. They've been amazing in all areas.

Original review: Oct. 6, 2018

My oldest daughter experienced a lot of bullying. The girls in her class are mean to her. My younger daughter attended pre-K and public school, and she got bullied too for being overweight. While bullying is the main reason we chose to enroll our kids to online schooling, my husband, who is a lineman, travels and with online schooling, my kids are able to travel too.

I had started out with K12, but it was very demanding. Even though you see your teachers on the computer, you basically feel like you have to figure everything out on your own. While my youngest was doing okay with the curriculum, it was not working well for my oldest. So, I had asked on Facebook the schools that were out there and somebody had mentioned Epic. Then I decided to switch from K12 to Epic 'cause with Epic, you can Facetime with your teacher to help you when you need help. With Epic, you can also choose which curriculum will best fit your child. I couldn't keep my oldest's attention with Plato, but now that she's doing Moby Max, she's doing a lot better. Last year, my youngest had Compass, and then this year, she's doing Waterford.

Both of my daughters seem to be doing good. Also, we can supplement them with book work or other online stuff. There are so many different choices that are available for your children at Epic. You know they're learning and they're not behind. The teachers have been alright as well. If your children are behind, you can get them back up.

Tulsa Public Schools sucks and since I have friends whose kids go to Epic Charter Schools, I enrolled my son there too. It is an online school where your child gets one-on-one attention instead of one-on-fifty attention. The quality of education is good and we appreciate the fact that there are extra options. The enrollment process was very easy. Every interaction I’ve had with their staff has been outstanding and Summer is outstanding as a teacher. My son is currently enrolled in high school and his experience has been outstanding so far. Epic is teaching my son and he doesn’t have to go to Tulsa Public so that’s a really big help. I already recommended Epic Charter Schools to three of my friends.

My child had been bullied throughout her public school experience her entire life. So, we were trying to get her a good education without being bullied. I had a couple of co-workers whose children were enrolled in Epic, so we went that route as well. Epic's enrollment process was extremely easy. We just faxed everything over. My child is in ninth grade and she does everything online. We're very pleased with the quality of education at Epic. I have two children and both were enrolled at one time at Epic. One of them chose to go back to the public school, but even when she was enrolled at Epic, it was great all the way around.

We love the staff at Epic. My child's teacher is the most amazing teacher I've ever met in my life. Any time I've interacted with any of the staff, it's been great. So, we have nothing but good things to say. We're very pleased with the whole experience. I always tell others about our pleasant experience with Epic. I'd recommend it definitely.

I was traditionally homeschooling my daughter for the last six years. The financial aspect of going to Epic was great because buying your own curriculum is very expensive. And all the opportunities that came along with Epic, such as prom and just having a teacher there as backup, has been amazing. Epic seemed to have the best qualification. I liked it and I also knew quite a few people that were in Epic. Their method is a lot similar to what we were doing but it has pushed my daughter more to achieve more. It took a lot of weight off of my shoulders. Also, the teacher that we have is amazing. I absolutely adore her. She definitely knows what she's doing.

In terms of enrollment, you just go online and fill out the enrollment form, answer the questions of where you live and then, they approve you or not to be enrolled. After that, you can either select your own teacher if you have a preference or they’d assign you a teacher and then that teacher gets a hold of you and ask you which curriculum you want. My daughter is currently enrolled in Plato. So far, her experience has been good. She really likes it and is enjoying Epic. The quality of education that she's receiving is much better than she could get anywhere else. The experience with Epic has all been positive for me and my daughter. I recommend them to anybody I come in contact with. It's a very wonderful program and as a parent, you get to choose and you're more involved than you would be at public school. It's like getting the best of both worlds.

I enrolled my daughter in online schooling because of the way she was being treated in public school. Epic Charter Schools seemed to be the easiest online schooling program for us to get all of our stuff through. We did the enrollment online and the process was okay. I've interacted with her teacher and he was great. We've met at the library a few times and he has helped my daughter out a lot and keeps me up-to-date on her progress. Compared to her previous schooling, it has been easier for her at Epic. The only disagreement I have with them is that graduation and prom are four-hour drives for everyone because we're up by the Missouri line and we don’t live anywhere near Oklahoma City. But other than that, Epic is the easiest way to go rather than have our kids dropping out of school. I brought three other kids to them, so they've gotta be pretty good.

We got five kids and we sent them to a private church school for a year and it didn’t really work out for us. We wanted a little help homeschooling, but it was a little daunting to try and do it by ourselves, so the next step was to try the online charter school. The enrollment with Epic is pretty easy. We do it all on the website and it’s all straightforward. The re-enrolling is also easy ‘cause all of the kids' information is usually already in the system. We’ve been with Epic for several years now and it's been all good. My children are enrolled in Odysseyware. I haven’t had a whole lot to do with a lot of their staff. Our teacher tends to liaison for us a lot. But everything I have dealt with them, they’ve been really nice and explained everything really well.

We really enjoy the program. Sometimes, it’s frustrating to jump through some of the hoops, but Epic can’t control that. All of that is up to the State. We don’t like being told what to do is the problem. My wife was homeschooled and went to this church school. I went to public school in middle school and I had a horrible time. I hated it and I swore that I’d never make my kids go to public school. So, every time that we get frustrated with any of the hoops we need to jump through, all of the testing we have to do, I think about the alternatives and Epic is still the best.

There are lots of different choices. Our teacher is really open to a lot of different things and talks about curriculum and what some of those other kids are doing. I really like it. My kids are doing really well. We just started school this year. It’s always a bummer that we have to end summer, but they picked it right up just like they’ve been doing it for years. And now, they’re working ahead a little bit, and they’re all getting good grades, and we’re really happy with them. Our youngest is eight and all of them read Calculus every day and they are way smarter than I ever felt being at their age.

We've recommended Epic to a lot of people and I have several friends joining Epic. At first, I’d warn them that Epic is not for everybody. Not every family is suited to an online charter school and that it’s always gonna be work. You have to be very involved in your kids’ education and have to be okay with that, be ready for that, but that Epic will absolutely hold your hands through it. And I know that from other families we’ve known. If they don’t jive with the teachers, then things can be arranged. Epic handles it pretty well.

My son was having some issues at school that we just couldn’t seem to get under control. We told him if we were having any more issues, he was going into online school. I had talked to a friend of mine who's a teacher and she told me that out of all of the online schools, Epic seems to be the best. So I just went with them. I loved the interactions I had with the Epic staff and I like the program that my son is enrolled in. He wanted to try to graduate early and one of the teachers there worked really hard and has gone out and beyond. She has laid the plan out and it's now on my son whether he does it or not. But we've tried to lay out everything that he could do because he came in last year in November and he got caught up. He did everything he has and that teacher tried to help him, but he does have a lot of stuff too.

When I put him in the online school, I didn’t want him to not be challenged. And being in Epic has challenged him more than being in a public school because one of my issues with the public school is that they'll say he could make an A, but they'll take his low B, and that was frustrating. They didn’t wanna push him. But where we had the one-on-one with the teacher from Epic, she helps push my son and keeps him on track. I really like that he has a teacher that he has to go and see to be accountable which makes learning better, instead of just doing it all totally online. He has deadlines and if he doesn’t make them, he's gonna explain to his teacher why. I would tell others to definitely use Epic as well if they want to go with an online option.

I initially picked K-12 but I switched to Epic because my son was in the first grade and wasn’t getting done until towards almost 9 o’clock at night. And my husband and I thought that that was not normal. The enrollment at Epic was easy and didn’t take long at all. Plus, the teachers were close and I could get a hold of one any time. If my son had issues, I could call and his teacher would come and sit with him. She was a very good teacher. She would come to the house and my son wasn’t just staring on the computer screen all day and hearing somebody speak to him. My son received good quality education from Epic and I would tell others to try it. In fact, I've referred people to them in the past.

Cade, my child, had some behavioral issues so he couldn't be in public school. We tried K12 first and it was a total disaster so we went with Epic where somebody referred us. When we enrolled, everything was done online. I'm not a techie person so it was a little complicated for me but it was fine. I would have preferred a whole lot more school work because he had so much free time left that it really was like he wasn't going to school. With Epic, you only have the one kid to deal with unlike in the public schools where they have 25 kids so they hand out one or two papers. Once he gets that one paper done in 10 minutes, he can goof off and play the rest of the time. I would like to have seen him have seven papers to deal with. Still, I would recommend Epic. My child is enrolled in public school now and if he can't make it there, then he's going back to Epic.

My son was being bullied at school so we went through online schooling back in January and we did it again this year. When I was looking for an online school, Epic Charter Schools was the only one that answered me when I called. The enrollment was a breeze and they took care of everything. Everybody I talked to was awesome and they were easy to work with. I told them that I wanted my son to go there and they contacted his previous school and got all of his stuff transferred. My son is in the one-on-one program and I love that he gets extra help when he needs it. His teacher is awesome and we love her. She puts him in special one-on-one classes when he needs to work on something and that's great.

I've told people about everything that we've experienced with Epic and how great they've been. The teachers really care about teaching the kids the concepts, instead of just watching them and dragging the hour, because my son does the online classes in such a way that they can see him and he can see them, and I get to hear some of that too. I just talked to some people who were having problems with their child not getting into the school program that the child needed to get help with in learning and I definitely recommended Epic to them.

We were in a regular public school and my friends referred Epic which is much easier than regular homeschooling and everything has been really awesome! The enrollment process was super easy and the quality of education is great. We did Compass last year and we didn't really love it so we're doing Waterford and we just started. We really love our teacher, Sydney. She's really nice, keeps some really good contact, confirms meetings and interacts with the kids and me really well. Epic gives you a lot of freedom that you wouldn't normally have with public schooling. The curriculum is really easy to follow and it's really nice to have a one-on-one teacher because homeschooling can be really overwhelming since it's just you doing the curriculum and all the testing. It's really nice to have the backing of Epic for all the state testing and curriculums. In fact, I told lots of friends about Epic, how easy it is and that the kids really like it.

I chose to enroll my children in online schooling for some accountability and for the financial aspect of being able to do extra curriculars. Epic Charter Schools was one of the first online schools I saw. I had my kids enrolled with them for two years. The enrollment process was very simple and the teacher for both my grade schooler and high schooler was the same. She was great and helpful, especially for my elementary-aged child. However, I didn’t know she was testing the third grade. There were some things I did in order, and others I didn't so it messed us up as there were certain things my daughter hadn’t covered when it was how Epic had it laid out.

Meanwhile, the experience wasn't that great for my high schooler because he didn't like the curriculum. We chose the Apex curriculum and it wasn't great. My son's a self-motivated person and was trying to get stuff done but he didn't feel like he learned much of anything. Also, they had a counselor whom I couldn’t reach immediately or even in a reasonable time because I was trying to do concurrent enrollment, so that was really frustrating. Nevertheless, my son took the GED and passed it. Now, he’s enrolling in college classes two years early.

We had home-schooling for a couple of years before and we just used free stuff and books purchased from Amazon. Epic Charter Schools was the only online schooling option I knew and we liked that they had a learning fund so we could use the fund instead to buy curriculum and to do extra-curricular activities. Their enrollment was easy although we had trouble with some enrollment issues at the very beginning and making sure everything was taken care of. Also, meeting up with Teacher Kara was super easy. She came to our house the first time we met with her and since then we’ve met at a nearby library. We don’t meet with her too often because we like to do things on our own, but whenever we’ve had to meet with her, we’ve been able to.

Right now, my children are doing the Accelerate program and I’m trying to get my daughter into the Accelerated Reader. And on the side, they do gymnastics with the learning fund. Epic offers good quality education. I appreciate that they give a variety of different curriculum to choose from. I really like the Accelerate program and it pushes my kids and makes them work hard.

My kids were getting bullied at school and I went to the public school and asked if they could help with the situation. They wouldn't help me with it so I decided to pull my kids out. Online schooling is a lot safer alternative and I've heard a lot of good reviews about Epic Charter. I've just done the enrollment process all online and sent in all the paperwork. They got a lot of it from the public school too, so it just really worked out for me. Both my children were enrolled for the Odysseyware. They seemed to like it pretty good. We're gonna try a different one this year, when they go with a Spider curriculum, just to see what it's all about. The teacher is patient with the kids and seemed understanding. She tries to help them the best way she can. She doesn't sit there and say that her students are not understanding something. Education at Epic school is great.

The enrollment process with Epic was nice and simple. For this year, we have a third grader, a second grader, a kinder gardener and a pre-schooler enrolled with them. I like their star teacher. She's wonderful and she really did a good balance, making sure we meet requirements while also letting us explore what we want to do within our family. However, we had some issue with some teachers getting paid in a timely manner with a learning fund. Like a violin teacher had a lot of trouble getting paid last year. But that was the only negative experience we had and other than that, the learning fund is great and we’ve had a really good experience with Epic.

My child has a lot of issues. He has a motor skills therapist, a feeding therapist, and a regular therapist because of all his emotional problems. Also, he does not eat regular food and he has a different schedule than normal school days, so I chose to enroll him in an online school. I was with K12 but something happened and I ended up having to switch to another school. Then, a friend of mine told me to try Epic Charter.

Everybody there has been good. They have gone above and beyond to help me in any way possible and I like them better than K12. So far, our interactions with the students and the teachers are amazing. My son's teacher is awesome and from what I see, she is dedicated to her students. She is always in contact with me and meets me at least once a week. She is really helpful. My child is currently in third grade but he has difficulty in some areas, so they try to get him some special classes. Epic Charter Schools has taken him a long way and he is learning a lot with the help they have given him. I would refer them to anybody who wants to try an online school before I recommend them anywhere else.

At first, when I worked with Epic Charter, I didn't have a good experience. The teacher was very forceful as to what we had to do. We switched teachers and the one we got, Angela, was more laid back and she worked with our schedule. Also, she worked with what we liked and didn't like. She was amazing. If my daughter didn't want to go to a public school, I would totally have Angela again.

My daughter wanted to do online schooling for more flexibility and to go away from negative influences. We already knew people who were enrolled in Epic so it was easy to learn more about it and have some support through friends. We went with a teacher who was recommended by a friend because her daughter already had her. We contacted the teacher and she met with us in Starbucks and we got to know her well. I got all my questions answered so that made me feel really comfortable with the whole thing. Throughout the school year, if we had questions, I would just text or call the teacher and she was really good at getting back with me and finding out the answers.

My daughter loved it although the teacher was not a Math teacher by trade and when my daughter had some trouble with a higher Math that she was enrolled in, the teacher couldn’t help her. I also couldn’t help her and so, I ended up getting some outside tutoring that was kinda costly. We tried an online tutor/helper and it really was not worth anything too much. There was another teacher in Epic that was really good at Math and so, he was available to help her some which was a big help.

Epic is great for older kids and if you had a daughter who was older like mine and had already completed a lot of a higher harder classes then Epic would be great. My daughter will be a singer next year and she’s only taking two classes online because she's pretty much done with everything. My middle school daughter wants to do it but I won't let her do it yet because she's got too many difficult classes in Science and Math coming her way in the next few years that I want her to be in a brick and mortar school for.

Epic Charter Schools expert review by ConsumerAffairs

Epic Charter Schools are free, public schools for students in Pre-K through 12th grade. It lets students complete their classes online, but it doesn’t require students spend a certain number of hours online each day. The school also hosts in-person activities, like field trips, prom and a graduation ceremony. In-person events usually take place in Oklahoma City.

  • Accreditation: Epic is accredited through the Oklahoma State Department of Education. It meets the same criteria as all public schools in Oklahoma.

  • Drivers Ed: Epic offers a Drivers Ed course to help students prepare for the exam needed to get a driver’s permit. After taking the course and getting their permit, students should be ready to start taking driving lessons on the road.

  • Graduation: Epic holds a graduation ceremony each year, so students and their families can celebrate their accomplishment. The ceremony takes place in Oklahoma City, and students can bring as many guests as they’d like.

  • Epic Meetups: Epic organized events where students can meet in person for educational activities. The events are usually open to students of all ages.

  • Prom: Each year, Epic holds a prom for students in the 9th through the 12th grade. The prom is typically held in Oklahoma City.
