According to a recent survey conducted by Stride, Inc.91% of parents agree that it is important for their children to have multiple school options, including full-time online or a hybrid model that mixes online and in-person learning. And nearly two-thirds of parents would consider a full-time online public school after their virtual education experience related to the 2020 pandemic.

Despite widespread evidence of a lost learning ‘COVID slide’ for students in the United States during the pandemic, Stride K12-powered schools like ISWA have reported lower learning loss rates than those reported in national studies. And in some cases, students enrolled in Stride K12 schools have experienced learning gains. To better serve Washington families, ISWA has expanded the offered grade levels for grades 6 through 12 to become a comprehensive kindergarten through grade 12 program.

“We are delighted with this school year and everything that lies ahead,” said Cecily Kiester, school principal for ISWA. “The past year has been unique and at times tough for parents and students.

With the addition of grades K to 5, this will be our best year yet! ”
