Insight School of Washington Reviews

I like that it is a free system of education, which is based online. This allows students to learn wherever they go, as long as they have a computer. Nothing is usually required besides a computer and Microsoft Word, which is actually provided for free download by the school. Also, there is an immense amount of schedule flexibility. As long as you do your weekly work, you are often allowed to do it at any time during the week. For example, if you have to go on a business trip on Monday-Thursday, you can just do that work ahead of time; even a month ahead of time, if you like. Or you could simply do it all on Friday or over the weekend, and usually don't lose any points. Overall, this is a school that allows one to get a good level of high school education (as long as they're motivated to learn), whatever their life circumstances may be.

I like the fact that I can work at my own time and place without worrying about bothering anyone else. My experience overall is in a positive light which I'm sure everyone else who has attended this school feels the same as well. The curriculum is quite easy to understand and makes it easy for the students to navigate through the system. If anyone were to look for an online school program, I'd tell them to put their child in k12 or ISWA
Since this is an online school, you can go at your own pace. Teachers are very helpful and quick to respond to anything. There are weekly class connect sessions where everyone is expected to participate in class discussions.
