Online High School And Career Prep Programs Are Great Options For Many Students
By Trista Montenegro, Stride Student Advisor
Hello! My name is Trista Montenegro, and I am currently a senior high school student at DAOF (Digital Academy of Florida) Online School. I moved to Florida from New York four years ago and started going to the local public school, which only led to distractions and bad grades. I was struggling with comprehending my high school coursework, and I also had an issue with being able to turn in my work on time. When my parents and I first heard about Stride K12, we knew it would be an excellent choice to cope with my educational needs.
On the first day of my high school experience with Stride K12 and Career Prep, I was introduced to my classmates, teachers, and the rest of the staff. It was great meeting everyone and knowing that I could contact my teachers, whenever I needed them. The best thing about Stride K12 is how easy it is to navigate. It is a seamless process to go to and from my classes, as well as with navigating the demands of my homework. It has been three years since that first day at my online high school, and the experience at Stride K12 is still as great as ever.
In my personal opinion, the best thing that Stride K12 offers would be their course certification exams. As a current Digital Design Student, Stride K12 offers a certificate in Adobe Photoshop. As we all know, this is highly unusual, because regular brick-and-mortar schools do not offer their students this fantastic opportunity to increase their knowledge. In addition, Stride K12 online high school also offers US International Clubs! This means that students across the United States that are currently enrolled in Stride K12 can join clubs such as theatre, music jam, e-sports, cooking, and arts and crafts. Each club has a unique teacher that volunteers their time, to help you enjoy what you love most!
Stride K12 also hosts events where you can meet your classmates and teachers! These events are mostly held as picnics, which include outdoor activities so that your peers and school staff can get to know you and your learning coaches (parents) more. Before I finish my online high school and career prep experience, I would just like to say to any student that is struggling, or needs help academically, that Stride K12 will be here waiting for you. Stride K12 is an online high school that is geared to help students. During your high school years, it is vitally important to experience what it feels like to excel, and learn more not only about yourself, but also about what you can carry out during the course of your life ahead!
