Letter from Our Head of School
Dear Oklahoma Family,
Welcome to the Insight School of Oklahoma (ISOK). We are thrilled to partner with the Statewide Virtual Charter School Board to offer a statewide alternative virtual charter school. Our school is focused on supporting our students and are committed to helping them stay engaged with school, earn their high school diploma, and be prepared for success in college, work, and life.
As a publicly funded charter school, ISOK is designed for you to be an active participant in your child’s education. ISOK students receive a complete curriculum and the guidance of an Oklahoma certified teacher. ISOK staff works with families to create a nurturing learning environment in their own homes. Our curriculum partner, K12, is the leader in personalized online education. The interactive nature of K12 courses engage student in subject mastery and foster a passion for learning. ISOK selects each course from K12's portfolio, including not only K12's own course offerings but also courses from K12's FuelEd and Middlebury Interactive Languages offerings all of which are based on alignments to state standards and appropriate rigor for at-risk students. ISOK creates an atmosphere where each student can experience success.
A strong sense of community embodies all aspects of the school day. Class Connect sessions, homeroom groups, email and phone conversations give student multiple opportunities to connect with staff and other students. ISOK creates a foundation to become a life-long learner and productive citizen. Our school provides avenues to educate students on the research-based strategies such as Grit and Growth or the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Individuals. Students are encouraged to participate Monday assemblies, homeroom sessions, clubs and attend schoolwide outings. These activities offer opportunities to interact and build relationships. We are thrilled you are here and want to get to know you!
We are proud of the achievements of our staff and students. ISOK is dedicated to Oklahoma students and we are honored that you have chosen our school.
