Upper elementary school is a formative time in a child's life. As students prepare for middle school, it's important that they're on an academic path that fits their personal learning style and interests.
K12-powered online fifth grade education options empower students to forge their own path as they learn to problem-solve and think critically. As students grow their knowledge and meet personal and academic goals, their support team—including their Learning Coach (a parent or another responsible adult), teachers, counselors, and advisors—is there every step of the way.
Read on to learn more about a personalized approach and discover if a K12-powered online fifth grade program is right for your child.
Prepare for middle school with K12’s online fifth grade curriculum.
A K12-powered personalized learning program not only gives students the opportunity to absorb the knowledge necessary to move forward but also encourages them to engage and interact with it. The curriculum combines the foundations of traditional academic excellence with easy-to-use software.
K12's upper elementary curriculum fosters curiosity, creativity, and exploration while preparing students for the middle school years where they'll have more autonomy. State-certified teachers lead students through engaging lessons and hands-on activities while partnering with parents to guide students on their individual academic path.
Designed to work with your family's schedule, a K12-powered online fifth grade education option is similar to the traditional brick-and-mortar model in a few ways:
- It follows the traditional school calendar year
- Online public school is tuition-free*
- Students receive one-to-one support from teachers and advisors
Unlike the traditional model, however, students have the freedom to learn anytime, anywhere. Our online technology allows students to access coursework anywhere there's an internet connection, and textbooks and learning materials are delivered right to your front door. **
