I did not interact with a lot of students, but I do remember the large amount of international students, which was impressive to me. They weren't the majority, but I just was not expecting any I guess. It is nice to see that VHS gives international students the ability to get an OSSD, as immigration can be very challenging for a lot of families. I did feel that all the students shared the values related to being ambitious and getting ahead, we all wanted to move on. There were social aspects to many different courses as well, I can remember an example where an assignment required each student to not only share a book review, but engage with at least 2 other students on their book review. It was a nice way to incorporate social aspects to virtual school.
