Student Enrollment Instructions:

Insight School of Washington enrolls students for first and second semesters of our school year through a centralized and local enrollment team. Students and families have a number of state required and school requested documents to complete the enrollment process. Once documentation is submitted and reviewed, students are approved for enrollment and the course selection process begins. Student transcripts when available are reviewed and a path to graduation is determined. Families and students are then contacted by an academic counselor to discuss course placements. Once conversation occurs students are place in appropriate courses and schedule is approved in our systems. Students who we can’t get in touch with are placed in courses as determined by the counselor and efforts to contact student for course scheduled continued.

Starting off the year was difficult and the websites weren't as easy to use as last year. Too much work needed to pass the class. Some courses have alot of busy work. Lot more writing this year. Deadlines are not conducive for some students. Some courses are reasonable while others feel like a college course. There is a good mixture discussions, writing, tests etc.

Insight is a great school. Except for most of the time, several of my teacher's failed to help and be there when I needed it in my courses.
