Letter from our Head of School

August 15, 2016

Dear Parents and Students,

As head of Insight School of Ohio, I'm pleased to tell you about our public, online school's mission and purpose.

Although we accept students of all ability levels in grades 6–12, our school has special strengths in helping students who are struggling—for various reasons—in their education. A struggling student may be one who has failed certain courses or has not been attending school for an extended period of time, is bored or turned–off by school, misses school days because he or she feels unsafe at school, has a crisis happening in his or her life, or perhaps has received suspensions.

Many factors can contribute to these struggles. Among them are learning issues, behavior issues, bullying, or a lack of effective alternatives at their school.

Insight School of Ohio offers a fresh start, with a different model that can set up your student for success. Our approach is not to judge students or families but to help them in ways that work.

We are an "online" school, but what does that mean? For most students, it means they will now go to school from the safety of home, where they can focus on their studies without distractions; without peer pressure; and with the help of excellent state-certified teachers, caring counselors, and a parent or other adult "Learning Coach" to provide support. Daily structure and lessons are provided through a stimulating online school environment, where classes can meet together and learning progress can truly happen.

In today's world, it has never been more important for students to finish high school. And, once a student succeeds in completing high school, he or she can consider moving on to other post-secondary schooling options: from community college to vocational programs to a four–year college.

We're proud of the team of professionals and the entire program we've put together for deserving Ohio students. We have impressive ways to individualize learning for your student, as well as provide social and emotional support. I urge you to review more details about how we help students succeed and get an overview of our outstanding curriculum, provided by K12. Also, please check on our information session schedule—the best way to learn more and get your questions answered.

Of course, if you're ready to enroll please do! If you choose to join us at Insight, and I hope you do, I look forward to welcoming you to a remarkably supportive school that can help turn struggle into success for your child.

Sincerely,
