Based on decades of education research, the K12 curriculum offers a rich mix of content, including interactive lessons, elaborate textbooks, and lots of hands-on materials. This combination of online and offline content—of thinking and doing—helps engage young minds in the right ways.
The K12 curriculum nurtures inquisitive minds with the simple approach that Big Ideas + Consecutive Down Payments + Practice = Content Mastery. This means that every lesson builds on prior learning, and students shouldn’t move on to new material until they demonstrate “mastery” over the old. The curriculum itself is built around the notion of identifying the “big ideas” within a subject, then reinforcing that material through repetition and assessment.
The K12 curriculum for grades K–8 includes courses in seven subjects: language arts/English, history, math, science, music, art, and world languages—plus adaptive K–5 math courses and MARK12 adaptive reading remediation courses. With more than 700 engaging lessons in each subject, students can dive deeply into problem areas or areas of interest. With this in-depth curriculum, combined with the individualized K12 approach, children will find the pace and learning style that works best for them.
