At Hogwarts, O.W.L. stands for Ordinary Wizarding Levels. At Quercus Alba, it stands for Outstanding World history Learner. We started working on this in September and at the end of our "5th" year, a couple of weeks ago, students had to be able to recite the history of the Western World from the creation to modern America. Alahna was the only one from our family to earn her O.W.L. award. It was beyond the boys ability and Anna just got bored with it. The video is a bit long, but if you watch it you will realize what an accomplishment this was.
