How do you offer socialization in an online school?
Insight School of Ohio students are more than just classmates. They're athletes, artists, volunteers, friends, and so much more. So even though Insight School of Ohio is an online school, it's important that we offer field trips, dances (even a prom), and a graduation ceremony among many other in-person activities. It's all in support of an authentic public school experience that both teaches and socializes.
The courses that students take provide many chances to interact with other students through discussion threads and "virtual classrooms" where students are together at the same time communicating through two-way voice over IP, instant messaging, and application sharing.
Students have told us that they build great relationships with other students through the community-building opportunities we provide.
Will school dances be held? A graduation ceremony?
Yes, there will be dances and a graduation ceremony. Periodically, Insight School of Ohio will hold field trips and events in different geographic locations throughout the state.
What about athletics and other extracurricular activities?
Students are encouraged to speak with their resident school district regarding the possibility of participating in extracurricular activities.
