For the last 4 years my oldest highschool children have used Switched on Schoolhouse for Bible. This year, we added two more subjects, US History and Spanish for my two oldest.

Because I teach 8 children, SOS has been a huge blessing to me. Each lesson is graded automatically, it is practically impossible to cheat, and I can see how much time they worked on the lesson.

Each day a lesson is given, daily questions are asked, and the grade is added to the report card automatically. Quizzes, papers, and tests are written into the lessons plans...this leaves me a little more free for me to focus on my younger children.
