It's nice because it allows for me to be a bit more flexible with my time.
I have been at WAVA for my junior and senior year now , and i would say that my experience would be very similar to a ""regular"" high school. Really the only main thing that i was dissapointed in was the course selection! There needs to be way more course offerings!!! And i have found that the courses that they enroll you in are actually kind of pointless. There was one i was in where i learned absolutely nothing!! This is something that you must work on in the future!
we think this is a great program. we also think that there should be a vew more options for electives home ect maybe, or more art classes that work with clay or paintings
