Insight School of Michigan (ISMI), an online public-school serving K-12
students throughout the state, will celebrate the Class of 2019 at an
in-person commencement ceremony on Friday May 31st. The ceremony will
take place at 6 pm at the Grand Ledge High School Auditorium in Grand
Many assume that attending an online public school like ISMI means that
students miss out on the ‘real’ high school experiences, but this
in-person graduation proves quite the opposite.
This year, ISMI will graduate over 140 students, over 16% more than 2018.
Collectively, the class reports having been offered over $57,000 in
scholarships and being accepted to colleges and universities across the
country, including: Claflin University, Alabama State University, Jordan
College of the Arts, University of Michigan-Flint, Columbia College of
Chicago, and Central Michigan University.
“At ISMI, we know we’re preparing the next generation of leaders and we
take that job very seriously,” said Teresa Boardman, head of school for
ISMI. “Like most kids, they have struggled, and they have succeeded, but
it is these life lessons that will set them up for success as they begin
the next chapter of their lives.”
Marya Algahim will serve as Valedictorian and plans to attend college
but is currently undecided on where. Destiny Choyce, will serve as
Salutatorian and plans to attend attending Washington State University
for Fashion Design. Both students, as well as Ms. Boardman, will be
available for media interviews.
Students enroll in virtual school for a number of reasons, including
those looking to escape bullying, some who may have fallen academically
off track, or those looking for an alternative to the traditional
brick-and-mortar classroom setting. ISMI students access a robust online
curriculum in the core subjects and a host of electives and attend live
virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers.
