Ontario virtual school had excellent leadership. They were given respect and also gave out respect towards the students. They made sure to respond to emails as soon as possible and provided me with additional help when required. The administration was quick to get all i needed to get done finished. They provided me with help even after i was done the course and communicated in the kindest way possible. They understood whenever i was stressed and ensured that i would be alright.

The school leadership at Ontario Virtual School is very respectable. Although, there is minimum interaction because of the online setting, the code of language is very professional and kind from the teachers and administration. They take student concerns very seriously such as deadlines to apply for universities and guide the students accordingly. One major thing you learn at OVS is professional communication via e-mail with the teachers and the staff because that is the main medium for interaction between student, teachers and the staff. This can help students when they graduate from high school and start their university life or go onto to their professional work life.

The teachers were highly educated, and I thought OVS was run great. I was recommended to the school by a friend. This was a decision I did not regret. I took english online and my teacher was much better than my in school teacher. She really helped me develop my writing skills. She also helped me work towards a really good grade. There were times when I struggled but she helped me improve my work throughout the term and I ended up with an A-.

The attitude of my peers and I towards the administration was very respectful and friendly, we treated them the same way we would treat a teacher from a residential school. In return, they respected us the same way and always ensured that we would remain on task by sending out weekly e-mails to ask about how we were progressing throughout the course. Whenever problems would arise such as not being able to access content or the textbook, the instructor would respond very quickly to provide possible solutions.

All of my interactions with administration were very helpful. All administration were easy to reach and responded to questions and clarifications in a timely manner. I felt like my experience with the staff allowed me to feel welcome and comfortable to reach out whenever I required assistance. The teachers were passionate and demonstrated in many ways to show their love for teaching and ensuring my education was their main priority. The level of communication with teachers and administration were fair and were always presented in a constructive manner.

As stated above, whenever I needed help, it was there within 24 hours. The admin staff was very responsive and helpful. I wasn't able to find a proctor, so they allowed me to write the exam at the school. It's a great option for those who can't find a suitable proctor! I can't speak for other students as it was all online, but my experience with the administration was really good. They were always professional with their answers and provided me with the information I needed. I did not have many issues with the administration. The only thing is, their staff is limited, though I had no problem getting any answers.

The leadership at Ontario Virtual School is great. There aren't guidance counselors or headmasters but there are teachers along with the staff. The teachers are extremely supportive of the course work along with other things you may want to talk to them about. They encourage you to do the very best. Although the school is completely online, the setting is very respectable and professional (for example through emails). This definitely has an impact on the students as they are exposed to professionalism this way that they pick up alongside other learning as well.

OVS is the place where the faculty is very passionate and cares about each little concern. Along with all the students who were in contact with me really honour such a respectful staff. Everyone left an unforgettable mark on the minds of the students due to their caring and positive attitude. The staff was very frequent and punctual with every work for instance marking tests, praparing report card and sening it to the institutions. Overall, the dedicated teachers and unwavering support provided by OVS gave it universal respect from all students.

I did not have much contact with the school itself, but I did have lots of contact with the teacher. He was normally quite quick to respond and helped me when I had problems with my assignments. Due to a techniqual difficulty I was having problem submiting my documents to the virutal school itself so I had to submit them by email and the teacher helped me with that. He was also a very fast grader allowing me to accurately see where I was in the course.

I didn't have much contact with the school leaders, headmaster, guidance counsellors or anyone with and administrative job, but, overall the teachers did very well in presenting themselves and letting me know that every question I had would be answered. In some labs I did seek for their assistance, and every time they guided me through the process rather than either telling me the answer or not really helping me. Also it was really important for me that my teacher understood I don't speak perfect english but if I made myself understood she didn't lower my grade or anything of the sort.
