Abstract

KOs Internet High School (KIHS) provides Grade Nine and Ten students from remote and isolated First Nation schools in Ontarios far north with the opportunity to receive a high quality secondary school education without having to leave their families and communities. Until KiHS, students as young as fourteen had to leave home and attend school in urban communities. With KiHS, these students can remain home during these critical years and are better equipped both academically and socially to cope with the challenges of city life when they choose to complete their high school education in the south.
