Myths About Online Schools

MYTH: Students who attend online schools lack socialization and social skills.

FACT: Students at Insight School of Oregon-Painted Hills (ISOR-PH) will have the opportunity to participate in many academic and social outings. We also encourage students to participate in K12 national clubs and state and national Career and Technical Education (CTE) student clubs and organizations.

MYTH: Attending ISOR-PH is a part-time job.

FACT: Students will need to spend about five to six hours on schoolwork each day, depending on their grade level.

MYTH: Online schools don’t meet the curriculum requirements for public schools.

FACT: ISOR-PH is a public school that happens to operate outside a traditional classroom. Our students are expected to spend a certain amount of time each day engaged in schoolwork. They are also required to take standardized tests mandated by the state of Oregon. The K12 curriculum was developed by experts to meet or exceed Academic Standards, and has proved to be one of the top-scoring online school curriculum programs in the nation.
