I really like the diversity that it has. It brings you many opportunities in various ways. I met great people, there are great teachers in the centers that are mainly looking for your suction life. They offer you all there help and is up to you to use it. They offer many trips and I had the privilege to attending to one of them. When I went on this trip, that was completely free, I met many people that I am now really close to because of the trip. Not only was it fun but i learned many things and helped me grow as a person. The only thing that I would like for the school to change is the interaction with the parents. I personally told my parents everything occurring with me and the school but if I didn’t do it, they would have never known certain information.

I was able to complete my high school diploma. Unfortunately my experience was not very well. I did not receive any help to figure out what college I was going to attend. My instructor often had trouble keeping record what assignments I was completing, and would give it to me twice. However, I do hear that not the program is doing much better. And there is more involvement and dedication.
Opportunities for Learning gave me the opportunity to learn at my own pace and in my own way without the restrictions of a typical classroom setting, I couldn't have asked for anything more from them.
