George Washington University is opening an online high school aimed at top college-bound students tired of generic public education. The George Washington University Online High School, run by GW and Herndon online education company K12 Inc., will serve students in the United States, as well as internationally. The school is designed for students who plan on attending top-tier colleges and universities, with rigorous classes, said Barb Brueggemann, head of the new school. Admission will be selective, and students will be judged on work ethic, integrity and academic rigor, she said. “The biggest difference will be the degree of flexibility in the students’ schedules,” Brueggemann said.
