I chose OVS for these courses because it provided me with a flexible schedule that allowed me to carry out my normal activities while completing my school work. The teachers and counselors are very helpful, the courses are positively challenging while still being understandable and well-organized, the administration and teachers are quick to respond, teachers provide feedback on every piece of work completed with the goal of assisting you in improving yourself, and the school website is simple to navigate. Also, OVS offers a wide range of courses you can choose from.

With each course you take at OVS, you get a taste of what to expect in post-secondary education. It also taught me how to work independently and manage my time well. I likewise learned how to properly cite sources for every subject, which is a crucial skill to adapt for post-secondary education. I additionally learned how to take notes during lectures. Finally, I learned how to write and read effectively for my future studies and research projects.

How did your experience taking courses with OVS compare to your day school?

OVS offers a flexible schedule, the chance to avoid issues like bullying and negative peer pressure, there are no distractions during classes because the courses are taught using videos, and breaks can be taken whenever you like. In comparison, I would say that attending OVS is by far a better option than attending a day school.

Go for it! This is your opportunity to take more control of your academics and move at a pace that suits you. Most importantly, OVS is the best choice.
