NVOL Courses: French 12, Pre-Calculus 12     NVOL Teachers: Florence Rioux, Billy Lauzon

​​Why are you taking this course through DL?

I took both of these courses because of my busy schedule. I travel a lot for fencing competitions across the world, and having the freedom to learn at my own pace and wherever I may be is an amazing opportunity.

What are the benefits of taking the course online?

​I get to work at my own pace. The teachers are always willing and eager to help online and in person.

What are some challenges that you face in NVOL? How do you overcome these challenges?

The challenges I faced had to do with my own personal goals for completion, and learning the content within a small window of time. With the help and generosity of my teachers and my self-discipline, I managed to excel and complete my goals.

What has been your favourite activity in the course?

In my Math course, I did a video project illustrating what I learned throughout the course. I had to show my skills when solving problems in a creative way using technology. I have never done fun projects in Math, so this was something different.

Have you taken any NVOL courses before? If so, which ones?

Yes, I took PE 10 online previously.

Would you take a NVOL course again?

Although I am graduating and will not be doing DL again, I look back and wish I took other courses through DL and not my high school. I was very successful in my learning here at NVOL.

Advice to any potential NVOL students?​

Make sure to set goals for yourself on when you want to be done the course. Don't be afraid to ask the teachers for help, they really do want to help you.​​​
