K12 Curriculum—What to Expect?

The award-winning K12 curriculum brings lessons to life with a rich mixture of online and offline teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, original CDs and videos, and materials for hands-on experiments. In addition, lesson plans for each subject are integrated, so your child may be reading literature from the same time period as the art or history lesson he or she is studying.

Elementary School

Your young learner will require your time and guidance to help him or her with completing schoolwork. This is a precious time for you and your child to engage in learning and exploring together-discovering the wonders of reading, math, history and science. In these early years of learning, your student is establishing important foundations for future academic and personal growth.

In elementary school you will work closely with your student's teacher to complete the daily lesson plan and monitor your student's progress and attendance. Your teacher is there to help you and your student, so please feel free to reach out whenever you have questions. This partnership with your student's teacher will ensure your child's ongoing success.

Middle School

Students become more independent in middle school, and begin to take more responsibility for their own learning with each passing year.

As part of his or her academic program, your student may be required to attend "Class Connect" sessions, where they will receive direct instruction from teachers and interact with peers.

In our Middle School program, your teacher will also work with you to ensure your child is progressing as expected academically. As always, please feel free to bring us your questions as you have them.
