LETTER: Try online learning

To the editor:

I’m the type of student that goes after a challenge.

School is something I take seriously, and I believe education should be an area where we push students to excel. Unfortunately, I didn’t receive that push and drive at my previous brick-and-mortar school. I had a goal of attending college but felt that none of my classes were helping me reach that goal. Then I found online school.

After enrolling at Insight School of Washington (ISWA) I could choose more rigorous classes and not have about the distractions and social pressures of high school. I learned to have discipline and structure in my day so I could finish my classes and achieve my goals. I never felt alone as there was plenty of support available through counseling and academic tutoring.

Since graduating, I’ve realized that many of the skills I gained throughout online school are applicable to work and college. I’m currently 10 credits away from finishing my Associates Degree at North Seattle College, and I believe part of that is thanks to ISWA.

If you’re looking for a school option that works, try online learning. I’m proof that this can put you on the path to a successful future.
