Mississauga, ON | Grades 11 - 12 | Shortlist
The administration were very welcoming, and friendly. From the beginning when I was deciding on joining they weren't pushy or rude. They answered all questions kindly, and always insisted to reach out if I had anymore questions to be answered. It created a positive environment for me. As a student, I felt very respected by the staff. When I was having technical difficulties operating the modules I was assisted through every step at a great pace, and they were very patient the entire time.
The administration team at this school was always extremely nice and understanding whenever I spoke to them. If my teacher noticed a lack of participation or completion of assignments, my teacher always reached out and made sure I was doing well. I felt that I was well-respected at this school. Admin always ensured that during group discussions, students were being respectful to each other. This school welcomes students from all walks of life and ensures that every student is treated equally. I appreciate the leadership this school has.
Students and teachers were both highly respected. The environment made it comfortable to talk to your teachers about anything and vice versa. From the moment you join everyone is welcoming and kind to you. It definitely helps students who may lack confidence to approach their teachers or peers about anything, Ontario Online Schools Network made you feel at home. Any problem you may have they were quick to respond appropriately, which helped ensure a positive school environment. They made sure to constantly communicate and reach out whenever.
I believe the most important aspect to learning is communication. Ontario Online Schools network made it possible to directly contact your teachers and receive responses instantaneously. Despite being online there was still that necessary teacher-student relation that all schools require. The teachers were kind and prompt in answering questions, and the respect was evident in their responses. This school also created a very safe learning environment for all students, where all students and parents practiced respect. There were no instances of disciplinary issues, but I was assured that I could always contact my teachers and the administration if there were any issues.
