About iSchool High of Flower Mound: iSchool High of Flower Mound is an Early College Opportunity Public Charter School. The process by which students achieve credits is unique at iSchool. Instead of the entire class following along as the teacher lectures, the students work independently through their KnowledgeUnits® and complete an exam for each Unit. Each course is composed of ten individualized Units of instruction with an accompanying exam which must be passed to earn credit for the course. The credit that is earned at our school is comparable to a credit earned at any other public school. Dual-credit courses are offered through North Central Texas College as an option to receive a college credit while attending our school. Students are expected to maintain a momentum that will ensure they graduate on time and are encouraged to accelerate and graduate early. We set our expectations high, and we offer a system that will assist in meeting these expectations.
iSchool High is a ResponsiveEd School: Our mission: To provide hope for students through an innovative, character-based, personalized learning environment where they are academically successful and develop into lifelong learners.
Today: During the past decade, we have continued to grow and serve more students. With more than 65 campuses, ResponsiveEd is the largest charter school district in the state of Texas. Our campuses are located primarily in metropolitan areas and include Premier High Schools, Vista Academies, iSchool High, Quest Middle Schools, and Founders Classical Academy.
Future: With a vision for the future, ResponsiveEd will continue to respond to the needs of our communities. We will continue to be innovative in our thinking, progressive in our practice, and passionate in our belief that every student has the ability to learn. Utilizing the best technology has to offer, the creativity our educators possess, and the resources provided to us, we will press on with the important task at hand—to educate Texas students and provide opportunity and hope.
