Washington Virtual Academy High School - Omak Reviews

Workload varies depending on what teacher you get, and what classes you take. I know I had some teachers who did not emphasize the homework and tests as much as they just emphasized learning the material and being fascinated by it! Other teachers wanted a lot of submissions, which was still very manageable. All in all, this school supports their students and lets us soak in the information at our own pace, without all the extra added stress that a regular brick and mortar school has. You are, however, expected to be super responsible. Nobody, not even your parents, have much control over you. You need to be extremely self organized and motivated.

A far as I know, since I can not actually see the students myself, the students in the school are kind people who encourage each other as well as take schoolwork seriously. We participate in the class meetings by talking through the mike, writing on the board, and constantly having discussions in the community chat box. People discuss all types of topics, from what movie they saw, to how feel about what we read in class that week. Student diversity is huge in this school! Honestly, they have no problem with student diversity.
Washington Virtual Academy is a great opportunity for those who are looking to continue a regular high school education but not have to go to school. The coursework is similar to a brick and mortar high school complete with extra curricular activities and group outings. The teachers make their coursework clear and the due dates are manageable. Most of the time you can work ahead of the course so it is easy to pull ahead of schedule to make time for non-school related activities. Some classes are unique to WAVA such as their forensic science course. It was an awesome course to learn and explore career opportunities. Overall, the teachers and faculty are amazing, outings are always well organized and fun, and the coursework is interactive and diverse.
