Student Success Program
How We Help Students Succeed
We believe in unlocking every student's potential. Many students struggle in traditional brick-and-mortar schools - frustrated by failing classes, struggling to keep up, feeling unsafe at school, or dealing with personal problems. No matter the circumstances, our approach can help students succeed and thrive.
Every student has unique challenges and ways of learning. In order to address each student's needs, we give Insight students a benchmark test to assess their skills in various subjects. From there, we develop an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) to place students in the appropriate courses, identify strengths and areas for improvement, and create a plan to chart their progress.
Our highly qualified, state-certified teachers tailor their instruction to each student as well as provide help outside the classroom. In coordination with experienced advisors and counselors, our teachers help students stay motivated, set goals, and stay on track for graduation.
Our program also helps map out career and higher education goals by offering college and career planning tools and personalized support.
Structured for Success with Personalized Support
In order to ease students into the Insight school environment, we offer three start dates, "cohorts," in the first semester. Students beginning with Insight in the second or third cohorts are assigned a lightened course load (second cohort start students are assigned 4 courses, third cohort start students are assigned 2 courses) to ensure they get off to a good start. This helps students get used to Insight's structure and sets them up for success.
Insight high school students enjoy weekly advisory contact to build a strong relationship with a caring advisory teacher, called an Insight Coach, or iCoach.
These unique programs strive to ensure students are ready to learn by helping them work through non-academic issues, with sensitivity to the realities of their personal and family situations.
Engaging Tools and Powerful Resources
We want to make sure your student receives the individualized attention to help them perform at their grade level. The Insight academic team identifies students' specific skill deficiencies and develops individualized remediation plans to address skill gaps. We then prescribe a personalized plan for each student, utilize a proven model of instruction, and track and analyze performance.
We couple state-of-the-art teaching techniques with interactive learning to make students feel engaged, empowered, and challenged. By incorporating audio, video, live chat, printed materials, and group interactions into the curriculum, our students can learn in the ways that work best for them. Our teachers utilize interactive virtual classrooms to provide one-to-one student-teacher meetings and live instructional sessions.
Credit recovery courses offer a condensed and focused schedule. Students who need to recover a credit often find they can get caught up more quickly.
In all, we believe Insight's holistic approach gives every student - including those who may be struggling - the best chance for success in school and in life.
Family Academic Support Team
The Family Academic Support Team (FAST) empowers students to overcome challenges - be they academic, social, emotional, medical, or otherwise - to succeed in school and beyond. This holistic approach includes early intervention, support services, and linking families to school and community based resources. FAST members and teachers work with families to provide the extra help needed to enable students to stay motivated and on track.
