Co-founded SmartFox in response to a need we had at Method Schools for more integrated systems and curriculum. From there we built a student information system, learning management system, and reliable, user-friendly online K-12 courses.
With SmartFox K12, learning, reporting, and enrollment all feed seamlessly into one system. That means educators can spend less time tracking down info and more time improving students’ lives.
Co-founded Method Schools in after working in the K-12 independent study space for more than a decade. Method Schools is a WASC accredited, independent study charter school for K-12 students throughout Southern California. In addition to WASC accreditation, Method offers a comprehensive UC a-g and NCAA approved course catalog.
Since 2014 Method has served over 30,000 students. We pride ourselves in the comprehensive solutions and educational practices we continue to refine to best serve students from all backgrounds and ambitions. Our agile model maintains an inherent focus on the student and empowers every Method Schools community member to learn and grow.
We value our partnerships with students and their families, schools and districts and other organizations all aimed towards creating a truly student driven model that supports growth and achievement for every student.
Simply put, we don’t believe there is an online model that is higher performing or more accountable than Method.
K12 was an early entrant into the public and private K-12 online school space. While at K12 I formed relationships with independent charter schools and school districts throughout the Los Angeles, Inland Empire, and San Diego areas, in addition to New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Virginia.
Managed all curriculum and programs of a San Diego county charter school that serves K-12 students through an independent study/personalized learning model. Pacific View was one of the first entrants in the online school market space.
