COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Insight School of Ohio (ISOH), a tuition-free online public school for Ohio students statewide in grades 6 through 12, welcomes families to enroll for the 2016-2017 school year. ISOH focuses on helping students who are struggling academically and who need more support to get back on track toward their high school diploma. ISOH teachers and staff work with students to help them overcome obstacles, such as learning or behavioral issues, bullying, or a lack of effective alternatives.
"Insight School of Ohio is rooted in the belief that every student has potential," said Amanda Conley, Head of School at ISOH. "We take a unique and highly supportive approach toward guiding our students to achieve their academic goals. Our community is strengthened by the dedication of our teachers, the determination of our students and the success of our graduates."
To inspire students to work hard and succeed, ISOH combines engaging web-based lessons, live online learning sessions and support from experienced teachers and counselors. The online curriculum is bolstered by a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program, as well as a Family Support Team to help students achieve success both academically and personally.
"My son is much more engaged in his education now that his classes are online rather than in a large classroom filled with distractions," said Amy Coleman, who enrolled her son in 7th grade at ISOH. "He talks to us about what he's learning, and he's made friends with his peers in the online classroom."
ISOH offers students an individualized education tailored to each student's specific needs. Credit recovery courses are available for students who need to catch up in a subject, as well as highly targeted remediation sessions to build specific skills.
ISOH teachers provide instruction, guidance and support, and regularly interact with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions and phone. Regional drop in centers are available for students who require additional assistance and will benefit from face-to-face instruction.
Interested families are encouraged to visit the school's website for details on upcoming online and community information sessions, as well as more about ISOH and how to enroll.
