Enrollment and Attendance FAQs
Who is eligible to attend Insight School of Oregon–Painted Hills (ISOR-PH)?
Any student in grades 7–12 who resides in Oregon is eligible for full-time enrollment.
What does it cost to attend ISOR-PH?
ISOR-PH is a public school program, so there is no tuition. We provide Oregon-licensed teachers and instructional materials. Eligible families receive a loaner computer and printer. Students and families will be responsible for providing some common household materials (such as printer ink and paper). Our enrollment consultants can help address your technological and computer questions and needs.

As Oregon public school students, all ISOR-PH students must comply with the state-required minimum number of 180 instructional days.
