As a public school, Insight School of Michigan is open to all students in the state with an emphasis on serving academically at-risk students who have struggled in traditional school settings. The school’s instructional model and academic strategies will focus on putting every student on a path to earning their high school diploma.
“Insight School of Michigan is another example of how K12 is developing partnerships in communities to serve students, particularly those that are struggling in their education,” said Jennifer Sims, Vice President of School Services at K12. “Whether it be previously failing certain courses, missing school days, or feeling left behind, we are committed to providing individualized online learning options for those students seeking new school alternatives to help get them back on track.”
Certified Michigan teachers will provide instruction, guidance and support, and will interact regularly with students using innovative technology and web-based instruction. Teachers also provide small group instruction, remediation, and organize school activities, clubs, and events for students and families.
Insight School of Michigan is authorized by the Central Michigan University Board of Trustees, the state’s largest and most respected charter school authorizers.
"Every student in Michigan deserves access to a high quality education," said Cindy Schumacher, executive director of The Governor John Engler Center for Charter Schools at Central Michigan University. "CMU is excited to partner with Insight School of Michigan and to support their mission of helping students meet their individual potential."
