All the courses i took within ontario virtual school were very helpful because i would use the knowledge i learned on an everyday basis. I was challenged to do the best i could which made me do better and better as time went on. Students were competitive to the point that it made me strive to do even better. Everything i learned was very useful and helpful. Whenever i was confused or struggling with something it was easy and simple to ask for help and better understand what i needed to know. I felt as if everything i learned was useful even to this day in my university experience. The lessons provided visual learning and also audio to help it better sync into your head. The teachers gave excellent feedback on assignments to show you how you can improve next time.
The schools greatest strength is the flexibility it provides for students. The students for the course I was taking, Advanced Functions, had to complete two tests to get their midterm mark and four test for their final mark. The student was given the flexibility to schedule in a test whenever they wanted. In doing so they would schedule it so that they were very well prepared for the respective test. This allowed for two things to be accomplished. The first being students were able to achieve better marks due to being very well prepped before writing the test and secondly, it increased the satisfaction of students.
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.
OVS is an online education platform, thus I mainly interacted with my teacher. This allowed me to study independently and work through the material on my own time and at my own pace. I felt like I was always supported academically as it was very easy to get in touch with the teachers/administrators. The online learning style prepared me for online courses that I have taken since being in University. University is a lot of independent learning and working through concepts/theories. Therefore, I felt very prepared after taking a course through OVS online as it transferred into my university career. Since online courses are very common at the University level, I was better prepared when I enrolled in online courses in my undergraduate degree. I am thankful for the opportunity to take an online course in high school as it paved a way for me to learn in a different way. Overall, this helped to challenge me as a student and made me a better student overall.
This school offers a variety of courses for all grades in high school. The courses are laid out and easy to find. I registered with this school because I needed to upgrade some grade 12 courses as it is required for the university program I am applying to. It may turn some people away because it is all online and some people prefer in-person courses, but believe me, it is a great experience. I was able to move at my own pace and I got just as much information through these courses as I would have in a regular brick and mortar school. I cannot speak for competitiveness among students because it is all online. It is actually a cool experience because I felt like I was the only student in the class and I had unlimited access to my teachers. I definitely was challenged academically, the courses were just as challenging as the first time I took them when I was in high school. I do feel like the school has prepped me for my next steps in my academic life because the lesson plans were thorough and the tests were very fair. There is no doubt, I learned a lot!
The academic program at Ontario Virtual School prepared me for university and I was able to apply the knowledge well. 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 the University of Toronto, Mississauga campus and the skills I learned from OVS are definitely helping me get through the school year with good marks. I would say the innovation for modern education taught me about planning my time with priorities. I started to prioritize schoolwork over going out with friends, which was an amazing skill to learn before university.
Ontario virtual school provides structured and effective programs. I did functions from this school which was essential for my further studies in seneca college. Allowing its students to work at their own speed provides a positive atmosphere for study. This enhanced my self judgement skills and prepared me to maintain learning and working independently. There is an easy access to the syllabus which can be seen repeatedly and instructors are always available to answer every doubt and explain it in a better way. The faculty is in fact very inspiring which encourages everyone to achieve their goals. Although it was bit challenging for me to study online for the first time but after completing it I feel very confident to start my college life where many of the coureses will be online. Thank you so much OVS for teaching me a lot!!
