Frequently Asked Questions

Could you tell me more about your site and how best to use it?
My Schoolhouse is an online learning web site for elementary, middle school and some high school students.  It is used by home, private, and public schools as a curriculum resource.  My Schoolhouse provides lessons with worksheets in all subject areas.

Are the My Schoolhouse lessons based upon standard grade levels?
All lessons on the My Schoolhouse web site are assigned a grade level.

Do the lesson levels (i.e., 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) correspond to grade levels?
The first number in the lesson is close to the grade level.  However, our lessons tend to be more difficult than the normal grade level expectations in the state and national standards.

What grades does the My Schoolhouse curriculum cover?
The My Schoolhouse curriculum covers grades 1-8.  There are some extended lessons that are considered one grade above the lesson level.

What ages/grades is My Schoolhouse designed for?
My Schoolhouse lessons are designed to meet the needs of all students at their educational level.  Our primary focus is grades 1-8.

Does My Schoolhouse provide lessons in each subject area?
My Schoolhouse provides lessons in Math, Reading, Language Arts, Spelling, Science, and Social Studies.

Does My Schoolhouse provide enough lessons to use all year in each grade level?
While the My Schoolhouse resource is quite comprehensive, we feel a solid education should encompass many learning opportunities.  We would suggest that some areas of learning should be completed outside of the technology venue.

Would a 2nd grader easily know which lessons would be most appropriate for him or her?
Yes!  Each student should complete the lessons at his or her grade level by referring to the first number in the lessons.  2-1, 2-2, 2-3, etc.

Does My Schoolhouse provide printed answer sheets to each lesson?
No.  At this time we do not offer printed answer sheets.

How do I access the easy printable Results Page for documentation?
The printable Results Page is available each time your child corrects his or her lesson.

Is there any way to save the Results Pages within the program and keep a folder or something to go back and view it?

The Results Page may be saved for future reference or documentation by using the browser Save command.  Click on File, choose Save As, locate the folder you would like to save your file in, and click Save.

My Schoolhouse seems to be a good curriculum supplement but I was wondering if it could be used as a complete curriculum?
While the My Schoolhouse curriculum is quite comprehensive, we feel a solid education should encompass many learning opportunities.  We would suggest that some areas of learning should be completed outside of the technology venue.

I'm concerned that there may not be enough practice on individual lessons but I could be wrong. Do the lessons or practice change occasionally?
While the lessons do not change often, we are continually adding lessons to our curriculum.

Can all my children be online using My Schoolhouse at the same time?

Can students enter their names in and save their work from one session to the next?

Does My Schoolhouse keep track of student scores so the teachers can access that information?
