Insight School of Oregon-Painted Hills Invites Students to Enroll for 2019-20 School Year

February 28, 2019

PRINEVILLE, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 28, 2019--High school students looking for an alternative to brick-and-mortar school are invited to enroll in Insight School of Oregon-Painted Hills (ISOR-PH). The AdvancED accredited online public charter school is now accepting enrollment applications for the 2019-20 school year.

ISOR-PH is an innovative middle and high school option for students in grades 7-12. The school offers traditional academic subjects, as well as three career-focused tracks in high-demand, high-growth fields: information technology (IT), business, and health sciences. Successful completion of these courses helps students prepare for industry-recognized certification exams.

At ISOR-PH, state-certified teachers provide instruction, guidance and support, and interact with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. Using a combination of web-based lessons, live online learning sessions and a rigorous curriculum, the school creates a unique educational experience for each student that helps ensure their success after high school. Together with their teachers and learning coach, middle school students develop an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) that helps prepare them for high school.

“We’re committed to helping students reach their goals—both inside and outside the classroom,” said Tim Jalkanen, head of school at Insight School of Oregon-Painted Hills. “At ISOR-PH, we give every student the personalized learning tools they need for academic, personal, and professional growth.”

Students at ISOR-PH can also take advantage of the school’s quarter-system model. This program enables them to concentrate on just three courses each quarter (typically a nine-week period) and often helps students get back on track and graduate from high school on time.

Outside of the virtual classroom, ISOR-PH offers in-person activities such as field trips, community service opportunities, social gatherings, an annual in-person prom and graduation ceremony, and access to extracurricular activities and sports in participating school districts.

Interested families are invited to attend in-person or online information sessions during the enrollment period. For more information about ISOR-PH and a complete list of events, please visit http://or-ph.insightschools.net.
