Insight High graduates got their degrees on Saturday and met for the first time many of their classmates at the online school. High-school senior Rosemary Perkins studied German for four years, but it wasn’t until Saturday that the 17-year-old finally met her teacher in person. Perkins and about 425 of her peers graduated Saturday from Insight High School of Washington, a public, online high school that opened in fall 2006. The graduation ceremony was held at Bellevue College. Insight High is one of about 20 online schools in Washington that offer students an alternative experience to brick-and-mortar high schools.
