As a teacher with the Monte Vista On-Line Academy, I enjoy getting to know students on an individual level. Students at MVOLA are unique and our school works hard to meet each student's individual need. We create the large majority of our curriculum ourselves, rather than buying curriculum from outside sources. This ensures that teachers each have a strong understanding of what they are teaching it and that teachers are highly invested in their classes. Compared to other online schools in Colorado, we are fortunate to have very small class sizes. (Most of my high school classes have fewer than 25 students in them and my middle school classes generally have fewer than 15 students each; when speaking with teachers from other online schools I have realized this is a great thing, as some teachers have informed me that they have hundreds of students in their classes). I love working for this school and I know that my students are almost always happy that they made the decision to enroll in our school.

I finished two high schools at once when attending Monte Vista On-line Academy. The teachers are very helpful and their number one goal is to make sure you are fully understanding the material presented to you. The teachers push you to do your best and are amazing. I would recommend this school to everyone who wants a challenge or are having trouble at other schools. It was one of the best decisions of my life to attend Monte Vista On-line Academy
