279Online students, staff and families are proud to be part of the online community we’ve created. Here’s what they’ve shared about their experiences.
“Some of the highlights of my senior year have probably been the flexibility of doing online school and also getting into college is pretty cool.”
Isabel Chew, 279Online Graduate
“I’m so proud of myself because I came here to the United States without knowing English and now I’m here almost graduated from high school and I’m so proud and I’m so happy for the future.”
Keiry Cardoso Hernandez, 279Online Graduate
“I felt more comfortable online. I felt like I had easier access to the teachers if I needed them”
Hilu Abdulrahman, 279Online Graduate
"The teachers are wonderful. They make personal connections and create a real community among their classes. My kids feel just as seen and heard as if they were in a traditional school setting. The 279Online staff is striving to fulfill the mission of our district and doing it with intentionality around equality and inclusion. I hear it in the language used and see it in the practices and expectations of the classes. (And it is a fun bonus that I get to witness all this happening! I wouldn’t be able to do that if they were in a school building.)
My students are growing academically, utilizing technology, and being validated in their personhood in the comfort of our home. I am at home, but my role is basically the same as if my kids weren’t!"
Carrie Jenson, 279Online parent
"I liked the way my teachers interacted with the classes online, the opportunities and time to work independently. The freedom of online learning gave me the opportunity to work her work on my art (IG @gaiaillustrations)."
Kaia Carter, 279Online Student
“I’ve learned a little more about more about who I am and what I want out of education and life in general. And I think I’ve just become a more grateful and happier person.”
Zoe Adkins, 279Online Graduate
