*Boise Online School is designed to complete the same amount of courses as a traditional secondary school but at a pace more conducive to an online only environment.  Students will complete 3 classes in Quarter 1 and 3 classes in Quarter 2.  This will allow our students to complete the same number of courses as our traditional schools over the course of a semester.  Counselors can work with any student specific requests beyond the 3 per quarter total.  

Please note that the length of class mentioned above is for scheduling only.  Students are not expected to sit in front of their computer the entire time.  The teacher will be making daily contact.  Once that is completed, students can then work at their own pace.


Mobile devices and hot spots will be distributed by your registered neighborhood school. Look forward to details from them in the coming weeks, or contact that principal for more information.

Infinite Campus Portal Update & School Name:

For internal purposes only, we have located the Boise Online Elementary under Owyhee Elementary,
Boise Online Junior High under Hillside Junior High and Boise Online High School under Timberline High School.  Students maintain a secondary enrollment at their neighborhood school. 

If you are prompted to complete or update your registration after enrolling at BOS at one of these schools, please do so. If the online program continues beyond the 20-21 school year, it will be able to have it's own place in campus. 

If you completed the online registration form by August 3rd, or have called your neighborhood school to register we have your registration. You may always call your neighborhood school to confirm. We currently have over 4,000 student enrolled and changing their status daily. Once enrollment is closed, we will contact all families with further information.

Classes and schedules will be assigned the week of August 10th, once registration has closed and finalized.
