Sports and Activities FAQs
How do you offer socialization in an online school?
Insight School of Washington students are more than just classmates. They’re athletes, artists, volunteers, friends, and so much more. So even though Insight School of Washington is an online school, it’s important that we offer field trips, dances (even a prom), and a graduation ceremony among many other in-person activities. It’s all in support of an authentic public school experience that both teaches and socializes.
The courses that students take provide many chances to interact with other students through discussion threads and ‘virtual classrooms’ where students are together at the same time communicating through two-way voice over IP, instant messaging, and application sharing.
Students have told us that they build great relationships with other students through the community-building opportunities we provide.
Will school dances be held? A graduation ceremony?
Yes! We hold an annual Prom, and students at all grade levels are invited to attend. Our commencement ceremony is held a week or two after the close of the school year, and all January and June graduates are encouraged to attend with guests (family and friends). Periodically, Insight School of Washington teachers and staff will plan field trips and events in different geographic locations throughout the state.
What about athletics and other extracurricular activities?
Students are encouraged to speak with their resident school district regarding the possibility of participating in extracurricular activities.
K12 student clubs are available to all students. Club meetings are held virtually, and joining a national club is a great way to meet other like-minded students!
