Fourth Grade for Mississippi Students
Students are really starting to come into their own in the fourth grade. They're discovering their favorite subjects and where they excel and feel confident. But some may hold back from asking questions in class to avoid looking less intelligent than their friends, while others may not participate for fear of appearing too smart. But fourth grade at Mississippi's Stride K12-powered online school is different. Thanks to the support of state-licensed teachers and the quality online curriculum students access from home, fourth graders can benefit from meaningful learning experiences without a lot of distracting social pressure.
How does Stride K12-powered fourth grade in Mississippi work?
Fourth grade at Mississippi's online school powered by Stride K12 begins with an effective, caring team. State-licensed teachers instruct students in online, real-time class sessions. Students and parents have open lines of communication with teachers who answer questions and help keep track of your student's academic progress. School counselors provide support, and the Learning Coach—a parent or other responsible adult—helps their student stay on schedule, records daily attendance, and communicates with teachers. Students learn from Stride K12's highly interactive curriculum, do daily coursework, and attend virtual classes through the online school platform. And like any school, students have opportunities to connect through in-person and online events, activities, and clubs.
