A Personalized Experience for Young Learners
Elementary school students are just starting to discover their personal learning style. With K12-powered elementary schools, students have the freedom to explore what works for them, with the help and guidance of their Learning Coach—usually a parent, guardian, or other trusted adult. For the elementary school grades, Learning Coaches spend between three and six hours a day assisting their student.
Unlike traditional homeschooling, elementary school students at K12-powered schools receive direct instruction from state-certified teachers, who guide progress and tailor teaching to student needs.
K12 courses are interactive and come with hands-on materials, such as textbooks, science projects, music, and art supplies,** to help keep young learners engaged.
