We offer a safe, academically rigorous, virtual education taught by highly qualified, Nevada credentialed teachers. Students who are self-motivated and enjoy working independently flourish in our environment.”

Nevada public schools face a number of challenges that an online option can help address. Dropout rates are a major concern throughout the nation, and in Nevada the overall graduation rate remains among the lowest in the country according to a recent report developed by WestEd in collaboration with the Center for Education Policy Studies at the University of Nevada. Many students drop out of school due to lack of challenge, pursuit of a career in athletics or the arts, work demands, illness or family obligations.

Insight School of Nevada offers a powerful approach for accommodating a range of personal situations and goals for students who may be unhappy with conditions and opportunities at their local high school; live in a rural or remote area; must work or have child/family care responsibilities; are pursuing their dreams in sports, entertainment, modeling, dancing or other careers; do not function well in large classroom settings; do not connect well socially at school; are challenged with health or physical issues; reach their creative peak in the evening and find it difficult to attend school in the early morning; need more challenging coursework to progress at an accelerated pace; or are home-schooled and seeking subject matter help from a certified teacher.
