Online School FAQs
Who is eligible to attend Insight School of Oklahoma (ISOK)?
Any student in grades 6–12 aged 21 and younger who resides in Oklahoma.
What does it cost to attend ISOK?
ISOK is a public school, so there is no tuition. We provide Oklahoma-certified teachers and instructional materials. Students and families will be responsible for providing some common household materials (such as printer ink and paper). Our enrollment consultants can help address your technological and computer questions and needs.
Does ISOK provide textbooks and other instructional materials?
Yes. We provide textbooks and instructional materials, which are sent directly to students. These books and materials are dependent on the student's grade level and the courses they're enrolled in. Most materials are fully integrated to the online course, so the number of physical items delivered will be few. A loaner computer system is provided to eligible students.
What subjects will my child study?
English/language arts, math, science and history are core courses. There are also other courses in the appropriate grade levels such as art, health/PE, music, and world languages. High school students can choose from a variety of electives. Students can also access credit recovery courses.
Can my child work at their own pace?
Middle school and high school programs provide flexible learning environments. Each program includes weekly assignments, scheduled lessons and activities, and assignments with set due dates. Optional and required instructional sessions are scheduled throughout the week to support student learning. Students have the flexibility of creating a schedule that enables them to complete academic work and receive teacher support throughout the day.
What if my child is behind on credits or failing classes?
ISOK specializes in addressing the needs of students who are struggling. Our credit recovery and remediation program help students get back on track.
What is the attendance policy?
As Oklahoma public school students, all students enrolled in ISOK must comply with the state-required minimum number of instructional days.
Can our family take a vacation during the school year?
The school calendar includes school holidays or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. Parents are encouraged to contact their student's teacher if they plan a vacation that does not coordinate with the school calendar.
How much time will my child spend online?
We expect that middle school students will spend more than 60 percent of their time online. High school students will spend 80+ percent of their school time on the computer. Students also do hands-on science experiments, read novels, and complete math problems that are done without the computer.
How do students interact socially?
Students spend time with classmates online and through school outings, field trips, and other activities. In addition to school-based clubs, Stride K12 online national clubs help connect students with like interests and passions.
If my student has been expelled from another school, can they enroll at ISOK?
Each case will be reviewed based on records from your current or former school district. As an Oklahoma public school, ISOK may honor current expulsions from another district. Approval for enrollment will not be granted until the case is reviewed.
Will you be able to meet the needs of my advanced learner?
Yes. We use the rigorous Stride K12 curriculum, which is well-suited to the needs of academically advanced students. We also offer a robust Gifted and Talented Program.
