How do I know if Texas online middle school powered by K12 is a good fit for my student?
At K12-powered online middle schools in Texas, a personalized approach to learning helps ensure school advances in stages as your child grows. Middle school is a critical time for students to address gaps in learning, master challenging concepts, prepare for tests, and form lasting friendships. Like the traditional brick-and-mortar education model, K12-powered online middle schools in Texas follow the traditional school year calendar, state-certified teachers provide instruction, and counselors and school staff are on hand to offer help.
An average school day at online middle schools in Texas follows a similar model to the traditional school setting. Students attend scheduled, live classes and complete offline assignments and projects aligned with the subject matter and their individual skill level. As students advance through middle school, they begin to take more responsibility for their learning as they prepare to transition to high school. But they are certainly not alone, as a parent or another responsible adult plays an important guiding role.
Texas online middle schools encourage a parent or another responsible adult to play the active role of Learning Coach in their student's education. The Learning Coach provides motivation, academic support, and guidance throughout the school year. There's also plenty of support available for the Learning Coach through training tools as well as opportunities to connect with other Learning Coaches.

Online assessments are integrated with the planning and progress tools so you can work with your student to find the right pace for each subject and stay on track.
