Letter from Our Head of School

Welcome from Our Head of School

Dear Parents,

At Insight School of Oregon–Painted Hills (ISOR-PH), an AdvancED accredited tuition-free, online public school for grades 7–12, we believe every student has the right to an outstanding education.  Our Board of Directors, teachers and support staff are extremely dedicated to providing that outstanding education for each and every student.

As a statewide online public charter school we provide a unique opportunity for students living anywhere in Oregon to engage in their own learning.  This allows us to tailor an educational program that best fits each student’s individual needs and circumstances.

The AdvancED accreditation affirms our commitment to offering a rigorous curriculum, focusing on student achievement and providing caring professional staff.  Each year we continue to grow and improve.  As an online accredited school we strive to be the very best for our students and families.

Our highly qualified experienced teaching staff hold Oregon teaching certificates.  The instructional programs are based on best practices that promote student success. We work collaboratively with students and families to provide the tools and support necessary that will allow students to graduate with their high school diploma.

We have created an enrollment process that quickly allows students to begin taking classes. Once enrolled, students receive award-winning online curriculum, books, teacher placement and a computer.  Each student will have an individual course pathway developed to meet or exceed Oregon state standards and high school graduation requirements. 

We are very proud of the education we provide at ISOR–PH.  We believe that working together, students will become engaged in their own learning and receive a life-changing education. Earning a high school diploma will allow students to pursue their future goals and dreams.  

Best regards,
Tim Jalkanen, Head of School
