“James is a seventh-grade student who came to BlueSky in January of 2019. He enrolled because of his involvement with motocross racing that takes him around the country. James has been riding motocross bikes since he was very young. He enjoys racing and the traveling to states like Florida, Indiana, Tennessee–where he races on Country Music Legend Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, and recently he was in Freestone, Texas where he took 4th place. James’s tip for success “Don’t leave work until the last minute.” James has really done a great job of balancing school and motocross. I am glad to have him on my team.”

“Beth O, a new student this year, is the epitome of what a well rounded successful online high school student looks like. Beth demonstrates these great qualities through her awesome grades, positive attitude, and consistent communication with all staff. When asked about her BlueSky experience, she said, “I was brought to Bluesky because I wanted to find a school that fit the best for me and helps me achieve my academic goals. I wanted to learn more things, and this school has many awesome classes and amazing teachers I have met so far. What I really enjoy the most is that the teachers and staff are really supportive and encourage me to do my very best and keep on doing a great job in my classes. And also that they help me when I need help with any lessons that I am struggling with, and that they take the time to talk to me and get to know me to see how they can help me be more successful. I love to read, writing, drawing, playing video games, hanging out with friends and listening to music. I also work at a local grocery store, sometimes it’s not fun, it’s rather boring at times but there is times its really fun, I love helping people and talking with them. My future plan is I am working on going to college in two years, finding what career I am interested in and love doing. Getting a good job, and after that, we have to wait and see.””

“Corby F is a hardworking 11th grade student who consistently does excellent work in his courses. He came to BlueSky two and a half years ago as he was finishing middle school and was interested in switching to online school. His suggestion for other BlueSky students to find success is to have a schedule and wake up as early as possible to be productive. When Corby isn’t working on schoolwork he enjoys streaming on twitch and playing with his cats.”
