A high school sponsoring a bowling outing for students would be pretty ordinary – unless the students, the school and the educational model they use is extraordinary.

That’s the case for the upcoming “Super Bowl” event sponsored by Insight School of Kansas. The high school’s student body, scattered across the state, will gather in bowling centers in eight different Kansas cities Feb. 6. The school will pay for the bowling and shoes for all Insight students and has arranged discount pricing for all other bowlers.

Insight Schools are a national network of accredited, diploma-granting, tuition-free online high schools. These web-based virtual high schools combine home-based instruction with many of the advantages of a traditional high school, including academic and college prep counseling, classroom discussion, AP and honors courses, vocational courses, guest speakers/instructors and crisis counseling, plus clubs and social activities.

Students work with experienced, state-certified teachers conducting live, interactive virtual classroom sessions plus one-on-one student-teacher meetings.
