    The teachers are experts in their subjects and their excitement about the material creates challenging and engaging classes for the students. But make no mistake, these are difficult classes! When my girls have had outside tutors, the common response is awe at the depth of the material they are covering in middle and high school.
    It is a surprisingly social school too! The kids are always on the group chats with OHS friends talking, goofy around or even watching movies together. The families are also great about getting together often and letting the kids visit each other. The best part is that it is cool to be smart and doing something positive and unique. This is the best type of peer influence you could ask for in high school!
    My daughter has taken summer classes in more traditional “work on your own” virtual schools and, while they have their own strengths, if you are looking for a truly challenging school and a real school community, OHS is a great place!

    Amazing quality of education! Instructors are top notch. My senior daughter once lost track of school work after getting a series of rejections from the colleges she wanted to go to in the spring, and the support of the proactive counseling team and the associate director was truly impressive. That was our first time having any concerns with our daughter's school work, and the school noticed weird activities in her gradebook and reached out to our family first. We had video conferencing and the associate director set schedule for her to catch up on missed work in a very practical way and intervened for her with her instructors. The counselor met with her twice a week just to make sure she is on track as planned, and he event went out of his way to meet our time zone, staying up late after his official work hours. OHS is truly a place we can meet people who we can trust and relate to.
    Fabulous experience in every way. Top notch academics, very interested teachers, great social experience with friendly students. They make an online school feel like a close knit community through clubs and a wide variety of frequent meetups! We now have friends all around the world!
