I loved that extra curricular's were emphasized and lots of opportunities were given if asked. I didn't like that most of the teachers were giving half-hearted effort in ensuring that we not only passed the classes, but understood the material present. You can only have so many coaches as teachers before they end up just giving you a handout everyday.

Well where should i start..

Joining this school was not my choice rather i did not have a say.
Alva is a home-schooled online program. At first i was a bit hesitant, questions in mind were aspiring such as "will i be able to make friends"? Indeed you will! in fact i was so surprised on how amazingly organized the program was i have been attending for the past 6 months now and i have to say i love it! it gives me the ability to be flexible yet finish my work faster. I am also able to 1 on 1 communicate with my teacher via online which was cool.
Any ways i do not regret my parents decision since it has given me the opportunity to make more Friends and help me focus on my future much better.
Alva High School is a great school because the teachers are here for your best interest. They guide you and help you get to where you want to go in life. Alva has many opportunities to get involved. If you prefer arts we have a great art program with a variety of media. We have a mixed choir and a show choir if you like to dance. FFA, Speech, and Debate are available if you like to present your talents. Alva has a variety of sports to get active in starting with football ending in track and many in between. The students here are also very welcoming and encouraging to new faces and their peers.
