What students are saying about alta

“Alta was easy to pick up, helpful when I needed it, and really helped me learn the subject. When I couldn't complete an assignment, alta pushed me to keep trying rather than giving up. Alta is better than other online school websites I have encountered in the past because of the way it looks, works, and teaches you.”

- Ian, El Camino College

“I like how alta adapted to my learning. I knew my homework wasn't going to waste my time with problems I have already mastered but rather challenge me and make me understand what I struggled with.”

JoLynn, Diablo Valley College

“I liked alta’s visual examples and explanations. I feel like using alta was necessary for me to pass my class. The purchase was very worth it.”

Kimberly, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

“I will be receiving an A in my calculus class, and much of it is due to the practice I got in using alta.”

Samantha, Diablo Valley College
