I love WAVA, but this year has been the worst so far. Once I FINALLY got enrolled (after over a month of waiting), I wasn't provided much make-up time from some of my teachers and nobody really explained how the WAVA HS system works. It was really a struggle to get started this year.
I feel that the teachers at Washington Virtual Academies- Monroe are very in tuned with their students and really try to help the student understand the material in the online course work. I also feel that they meet each student at their own level. Overall, I have had a very positive experience.
I came to this online school hopping to stop being so stressed out like I was with the bullying at my old public school. But sadly due to how late the school finally enrolled me, When I had sent my papers in the BEGINNING of the semester. They finally got everything sorted closer to the end. There for I have been nothing but stressed out with family deaths and failing classes. I started losing sleep again to a point that sometimes I just started crying in fear of failing school. And I hate to say it but really I do not like the way that the charts do not update the MOMENT I do something so my teachers would think I have not been on in days yet I was just online. And I would find myself not motivated enough to do anything as to where last year I would get burst of motivation.
