But for many of these students, a distraction-free environment is just what they need to get back on track academically.
"Whether the next step is the workforce or a college, it is critical for students to finish high school," says JD McMahan, Interim Head of School at Insight School of Oregon – Alternative Option, "We help Insight students plan for a future they can attain and feel good about, which helps motivate them in their current studies."
ISOR-ALT gives students the opportunity to learn both core subject areas and electives from state-certified, highly qualified teachers using the award-winning curriculum and tools provided by K¹². School staff, including advisors, counselors, and a social worker, provide teens with additional support through services such as the Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program and a dedicated family support team . These services provide a unique environment for students to thrive.
ISOR-ALT also provides extensive college and career planning resources to help students learn about themselves, discover career interests or identify colleges, and plan for future career success.
