Everyone is accepted at Ozarka. As a freshman, a person may unfortunately run into a few classmates that still act like high school freshman, but that is rare. People of all ages, genders, races, and abilities attend side by side without issue. Most everyone gets along fine. For the most part, we are focused on our studies, but there are some opportunities to get involved in school decisions and activities.
For example, when gun laws became such a huge issue, we all gathered to say what we needed to say and vote on what our school policy would be.
I also participated in an "Australian Walk-About." It was a virtual tour of Australia. We logged the miles we walked on the treadmill, on the track, or at home. When we reached a destination, there was a flyer describing some about the city, culture, and history. When we walked all the way around Australia, we had a party!
