Hub Testimonials

We love Hub Virtual School, but what we love even more is hearing how much our Hub Families love it too!

“We weren’t sure quite what to think when we made the switch to the Hub this year.  To say it has been amazing is an understatement!  I have a child who went from poor attendance in a typical school setting,  to excited to go to school every single day.  He is engaged and truly loves all his subjects.  The teachers are all subject matter experts and their passion is clearly contagious.  The communication between the faculty and our family is also above and beyond anything I could have hoped for.  What started out as a “let’s try it out just for this year” has turned into “I’m staying at the Hub all the way through grade 12!”  Words cannot express what it is like to see your child not only enjoy going to school but to be flourishing.  These kids get to have the best teachers and experience learning in their own, ideal environments.  We are so lucky not only to have the Hub in our community but in our province.”

"Living through 2020 and 2021 as a teenager has been very challenging for many but has also brought several unexpected experiences and friendships.  As of last year, I was in French immersion at Crescent Heights and I would have never guessed that my life would change so much over the course of a year.  I am beyond grateful for the amazing opportunities that online schooling has given my peers and I.  This year, I had the opportunity to live on Vancouver Island for six months.  It was truly an amazing experience and as a result of that, I got to play club volleyball with Mariners Volleyball Club and work with different coaches.  By training in different ways and spending more time outside, my performance in volleyball improved drastically.  This year has been a year that we’ve had to try new ways of doing things and the teachers at the Hub have done a tremendous job at that.  I had been warned about the challenges of transferring to all English learning after having all previous schooling in French, but the teachers here made it a seamless transition.  In summary, while this year has been a difficult one for countless, it was made better for me through new opportunities."

"This year has been the best year of school that I have ever had. 2020/2021 could have gone either way, but because of the extraordinary teachers and the dedication and compassion that they showed in order for this year to go smoothly for everyone. Again, the autonomy that online school provided everyone pushed the limits of the individual problem solving skills without limiting the quality support from the teachers. Thank you to all of my Grade 9 teachers for making this year the best and most productive year of schooling I have ever had amongst the chaos of the world right now, I don't know if I can put into words how amazing it has been, but thank you."
