Overview

The Moses Lake School District provides two digital learning options for our students. The first operated by the MLSD uses the APEX Curriculum for all credit accrual and retrieval including summer school operations. The second option is collaborating with our third-party vendor, The American Academy for the students enrollment.
With either program it is the goal of the MLSD to have all graduates college/career ready.
The MLSD recognizes the fact that on-line learning provides our students with an opportunity to be self-disciplined learners and to access curriculum and specialized courses in a flexible learning environment that might not otherwise be available.
We firmly believe that on-line learning supports our district mission: A caring community dedicated to the success and well-being of all.
