AVLI Courses Taken

What piece of advice would you give a student considering taking an AVLI course?

Anyone who is considering taking an AVLI course absolutely should. I was hesitant in my decision to take an AVLI course, since I thought it would be challenging learning in a virtual environment, and I was correct. It has been a challenge, but it has also allowed me to grow in a way that my previous classroom experiences haven't. We are given a lot of flexibility with our schedules, since we can complete work at any time before the set due dates. It has taught me invaluable schedule and time management skills, not to mention all of the calculus topics I've learned these past few months.

What surprised you most about your AVLI course experience?

The thing that has surprised me most about my AVLI experience is the relationship I've built with my teacher, Mr. Owsley. I thought that taking a class where I never met my teacher in person would hinder our relationship and my growth as a student, but that couldn't be further from reality. We've gotten to know each other very well over the course of the year, and it wouldn't be inaccurate to say that I know him better than some of my in-person teachers.
