    My child is an 8th grader at GWUOHS. We have been really pleased with the rigorous curriculum and the live classes, as well as the independent lessons. The pace of the courses are rapid and the assessments are varied, from quizzes and tests to papers and graded assignments where she shows her work. Prior to GWUOHS, she was bored at her private school and unchallenged by the classes. Now, she is excited and is working much more to her full potential. The teachers interact with the students like professors, and are a lot of help when needed in help sessions. Her fellow students are a diverse bunch, and they are all positive and supportive of one another. She has made friends with students from various parts of the country. Also, as a competitive athlete, she can accommodate her practice and competitive schedule more easily with online school without sacrificing rigor. Five stars!

    I started GWUOHS in sophomore year, leaving my brick and mortar school due to health issues that were interfering with my ability to attend and succeed in a normal school setting. Since joining I've had 2 major health crises, and all of my teachers, advisors, and the school's administration did everything they could to accommodate. There's no doubt in my mind that I would've been held back if I were attending my old public school because of the amount of days I would've missed (for intense treatment, hospital stays, etc.) I'm so grateful I avoided that at GW due to the flexibility and help available.

    Academically, I learn a lot from the rigorous curriculum. If I'm having trouble, teachers are always happy to help outside of class. I've developed great relationships with my teachers and advisor; now that I'm going to into senior year, I feel prepared for college and excited for what the future holds. I can't thank everyone at GWUOHS enough!
    Freshman 20-21 year. We chose this school to accommodate high academic standards and high level in sport. I’m not going to lie, there were tears a few times from my straight A student as she got used to the online learning and curriculum. She trains in her sport approximately 30 hours per week while maintaining a 90 or above in all Honors classes. I believe this is totally attainable for any kid who is willing to put in the work and stay on task. She loves the flexibility that she has with her classes but has also learned to manage her time properly to assure she remains on task and on schedule with her assignments. There are are countless resources to help out i.e, Subject specific Help desks, school and college counselor, clubs and school participation activities to engage in if your student chooses to do so. Yes, there have been a few glitches along the way but if you keep an open mind and your student is adaptable they will most likely enjoy the offerings this school has.
