We believe in a balanced approach toward education. Computers help us provide you with effective assessment, planning, and time-management tools. Computers also act as powerful teaching tools that can motivate, stimulate, and inform children about the world around them. They do not, however, replace a solid education. Rather, they help facilitate one. That's why we use a unique multimedia approach that also includes traditional books, workbooks, and instructional materials.*

Students spend time with classmates online and through school outings, field trips, and other activities. In addition to school-based activities like art club, K12 online national clubs help connect students with like interests and passions.
