TOPS Student Life
At TOPS, you can be yourself. While attending online school means you don't have to go to a building every day, it doesn't mean you can't meet people and make friends. Students at TOPS are a community of learners growing together and helping one another succeed. If you're looking for a diverse, inclusive environment where everyone can fit in, you've found the right place
We encourage students to get involved with clubs, participate in discussions in class, and if they're on Facebook, join our closed student group.
What is it like being a student at TOPS? Here's what some of our current students had to say...
"TOPS is a way to escape the normal every day routine of waking up early and having to catch a bus, or get ready to go to a brick and mortar school and go from class to class lugging around all sorts of things like books, notebooks, pencils, etc... TOPS is the place where students are able to still get a great education all while in the comfort of your own home, being able to do school work on your own time and still being able to do all sorts of other things with your down time. TOPS is the place to be if you are looking for a great education, new friends, and a safe environment to work in without having the worries of everyday school drama, people drama and all sorts of other complications that most brick and mortar school students go through each and every day."
"To me, TOPS gives opportunities to do more that we love, whether it be hobbies or the volunteering. It's chance to find who we are and who we want to be without criticism from bullies. TOPS is making us the best that we can be."
"TOPS gave me a chance to break away from the "normal" teenage experience of brick and mortar high schools, and through that I have met new people and great friends. TOPS has helped me learn you don't have to be just like everyone else, you can be unique and NOT get made fun of for it (like in brick and mortar schooling). We can be ourselves and still meet people just like us through TOPS. Most of the teachers in TOPS make sure you know they have your absolute best interest in mind, they truly want us to learn and succeed. I appreciate everything TOPS does for their students to enjoy our high school experience and achieve our goals."
