(5) Overall Experience

Ontario virtual high school was the best high school I attended, teachers were so helpful and able to understand me. This school helped me achieve my goals and attend the university of my dreams. My experience at Ontario virtual school (one i'll never forget) when I needed to finish all my courses immediately because the deadline to apply for university was near, is that they marked my work really fast and the teachers here helped me and gave my feedback on what I needed to improve in order to get my grades up.

(5) School Leadership

The administration at Ontario virtual school was very helpful, they were able to prepare my transcript at a very short notice and they marked my work in a very timely manner and my official report card was mailed out to me immediately. The schools administration is very helpful and they want the best for there students and they have such a positive attitude and there willing to go the extra mile for their students. The admission process is fast and simple

(5) Teaching

The teaching at Ontario virtual high school was awesome. The teachers worked with you at your pace and they offered positive feedback. The teachers helped me achieve my personal development goals. They had such a positive impact in my life and because of the way I was taught at this school I’m in university now. The level of respect between the students and the teachers is amazing the teachers give their students the attention and support they need to do good. The teachers at Ontario virtual school actually care about their students and go above and beyond for them.

(5) Academics

The academic program at Ontario virtual school prepared me for university I was able to apply the knowledge at my university. The teachers were helpful and the school goes above and beyond for their students. This is the first school I attended that caters to the need of their students. I’m currently going to University of Toronto Missisauga campus and the skills I learned from here are definitely helping me get through the school year with good marks.

(5) School Life

I loved going to Ontario virtual school it’s the first school I felt respected and understood. If I could do it again I would definitely come back to this school. The students here were always happy and willing to learn because the atmosphere here is great! The school helped me develop me as a person and made me feel welcome they let me work at my own pace and did not rush me in anyway. They made sure I was happy with my work and they gave detail reasoning as to why we got that mark and what we could do to improve our marks next time. This is the only school who truly understands the need of their students and don’t judge you on how fast or slow you do your work.

(5) Admissions

Applying here was so easy and the administration helps you with any questions you may have and helped you make sure you have all the prerequisites in order to graduate. The teachers reached out to me when I had some questions on the courses and they told me what the format of the courses are and they broke down the workload in 4 to 8 different units. Also any issues were resolved right away. When I applied at Ontario virtual school I was really nervous but when the administration reached out to me they gave me advice on what courses should be taken and what to expect from the school. The school made sure we had all the things needed in order to achieve our grades.

(5) University placement and counselling

The school helped me achieve my diploma and made sure I had enough credits to graduate. They messaged me and let me know what courses I was missing that way I would complete them in time so I would be apply to attend my post-secondary school on time. When I applied at my university they gave me what was needed to apply i.e. my marks were uploaded on OUCA right when I finished them. My transcript was sent to the university immediately. The administration emailed me and asked what school I got offers too and if I had accepted any they really care about their students and wish the best for them.
