Coming from a very large campus Options has given me the ability to learn at my own pace and deal with my anxiety. I was very uncomfortable with large crowds and making friends. When I arrived at Options everyone had their own reasons for being there. Including falling behind on work, dropping out of school to work to help their families at home, deaths, surgeries, and even pregnancy. Although all of these reasons are very different from one another each student had no problem in sharing with their fellow classmates. Older students seemed more than happy to be able to tell younger classmen to show them that it is possible to make a comeback and they are not alone. I have seen complete strangers greet one another like family. I am a leader now, and am stronger than ever. I will be eternally grateful for Options High School.
Although at Options a student can spend most of the school year with one teacher, they can travel to others for an elective, subject, or a question. The great thing about this is the student can receive different inputs on a subject. However, they can also see how a students education with having one particular teacher. My current year as a senior, I have had the honor of having a great teacher. She goes above and beyond for her students.Being an online learning campus most of the time the teacher supervises and is there if a student has a question. Mrs. Escobar will use her teaching skills to sit down with the student or give them a lesson one on one to help them. Even when it is not a subject she specializes in she will learn the lessons to help future students. Without a doubt, the best teacher at Options. A teacher who exceeds her obligations and genuinely cares about the quality of education to help her students their future.
