Spotlighting our best work!

Check out the great work that our students do at Georgia Virtual School!

Meet Moise

Moise, his mother, and two siblings, fled their village in Rwanda in the middle of the night and were taken to Clarkston, GA, as part of a U.S. refugee relocation program in November 2018. When Moise and his family arrived, Moise spoke no English. At the age of 15, Moise entered Clarkston High School as a freshman. He immediately excelled in his early high school courses, as he continued to work on his English proficiency. During high school, Moise has been on the varsity cross country, track, and soccer teams, worked part time, competed on the robotics team, played and officiated club soccer, and volunteered helping young children in his community. Moise is currently a straight A student at Clarkston High School. This past summer, Moise took two advanced mathematics courses through Georgia Virtual School and completed a final English proficiency program. Moise aspires to attend a selective 4-year university after graduation to focus on computer engineering and, in his words, “helping other people.” Those who know Moise well recognize extraordinary potential in this young man, and have found him to be humble, driven, and extremely grateful.

Meet Bristol

Bristol has been an exemplary student since day one of class. She consistently goes above and beyond the minimum requirements of her assignments and turns in college-level products. Her discussion boards are always outstanding, full of research, extremely insightful, and I always look forward to reading what she has to say. Bristol has maintained the top spot in my class this entire semester thanks to her diligent work ethic and attention to detail. When she communicates with me and her classmates, Bristol is extremely respectful, polite, and encouraging. In her free time, Bristol sings in the praise band at her church, plays piano, and runs on a local track team with her brothers. She is a true joy to have in class and I believe she will accomplish great things! 


 

Meet Trinity

Trinity is a kind and thoughtful young lady as well as a dedicated and self-motivated student. She uses the various resources provided in her courses. She diligently reviews feedback and asks questions that help her grow and strive towards the highest level of mastery. She is taking 3 AP courses with GaVS and enrolled in remote learning with her face-to-face high school, Woodstock High School in Woodstock, GA.  Dedication and discipline are necessary to achieve consistently at a high level during this most difficult year of the pandemic. Trinity's extracurricular activities include Ambassador (the highest level) in Girl Scout and currently working towards earning her Gold Award. She is also in NHS, Beta Club, and Mu Alpha Theta in her school. She participated in the STEM program during 9th and 10th grade.

Meet Bryce

Bryce made an impression on the first day of the term! He reached out to introduce himself and ask questions about the course and the assignments. Since then he has proven himself to be a consistent, exceptional student. Bryce is a very motivated student who shows great initiative and determination. He takes AP courses with GaVS and he is a junior at Bainbridge High School. He enjoys powerlifting and hip hop and enjoys staying up-to-date with politics. He is an exemplary GaVS student. 

 

 

 

Meet Jamal

Jamal made a very positive impression the first day of the term! He is a respectful, mature and academically gifted student. His work is consistently exemplary and he attends our synchronous sessions each week, contributing to the meetings each week. He intends to attend Rice University in the fall and double major in Political Science and Business with a minor in Global Health. His career goal is to become a civil rights attorney. Jamal is a 2021 Coca-Cola Scholar having been chosen as one of 150 scholars out of nearly 100,000 applicants nationwide.  Jamal is a well-rounded, articulate, determined student who also is personable and interesting. He contributes to the class and is an asset to GaVS. I can't say enough good things about him!
