About Our School:
iLearn Secondary School is a Grade 8-12 high school. All our courses are offered through a distributed learning method, which means our courses are delivered online, and students (usually) complete tests and quizzes on campus or at an approved testing location. We break the barriers on what people perceive as high school education. Instead of students’ lives revolving around school, we make school flexible so students’ school requirements can revolve around them.
