OHVA HS believes that students should have an easy time at math. Therefore, they routinely issue the same subject materials for outgoing 8th grade students and incoming 9th grade students. It doesn't happen for every course, but if it happens for just one, it is too many. Exposing children to typical learning materials for their grade level isn't something that OHVA gets, so if you''re considering enrolling your child, be sure to ask questions about placement before you end up with a big surprise. Not all courses have physical textbooks, so beware. If you don't need them, great, but if you travel withouth computer access or if your child needs to hold what she or she is reading, you may find yourself disappointed in science, for instance. Some veteran parents who have used the program for a number of years will staunchly defend OHVA's less-then-desirable practices. Take their advice with a grain of salt as many have no clue what how a high school curriculum should progress simply, because they''ve never experienced or researched anything else. You may find that OHVA is OK for K-6, but not beyond. Do your research and don't be pulled in by the hard sell and advertisements.

The actual teacher/student ratio is more like 60 or more students to one teacher for elementary grades and 120 for high school. Many times even elementary teachers have over 100 students it they are taking over the workload of teachers on temporary leave, etc. It really is a business and they want your money.
