Personalized, Online Elementary School for Second Graders
At K12, we believe each child should be given every opportunity to thrive. And their learning environment should support that, providing them with the tools they need to succeed.
K12-powered online second grade programs offer your child a personalized education experience on a schedule that works for you and your family.
Mastery Based Second Grade Curriculum
At K12-powered schools, online second grade curriculum is mastery-based. This style of teaching allows second graders to learn and progress at their own pace, ensuring each child has mastered his or her lessons before moving on to new subjects.
As your child's parent or legal guardian, you (or another responsible adult) act as their Learning Coach. Your role is to make sure your child completes their lessons and assignments to stay on track. Learning Coaches also work closely with their child's teacher to monitor student progress and success.
