Ko12 students don't spend their day sitting in a chair listening to a teacher talk about an academic lesson because kids are designed to move!
Ko12 Kids are on the move in the classroom as well as at play. Ko12 play isn't just a 3o minute recess. Research shows psychomotor activities help students anchor learning. So, Ko12 play happens in multiple short sessions all day long. We call it "Structure and Play, throughout the day."
Ko12 students work to their own ability, whether that's above or below others and in a way that preserves a positive self-image and builds self-confidence.
Ko12 class sizes are kept small so that each student is able receive the attention they deserve. Each child develops at their own individual pace, academically, social-emotionally, and physically. With individualized attention, we are able to help every student expand their knowledge, develop new skills, and experience learning in a way that fits who they are.
Ko12 instruction is NOT Montessori. In fact, many families come to us from a failed Montessori experience, being told their child "doesn't fit in." We believe that's wrong. Ko12 meets every student where they are and we help them become who they're meant to be.
We prepare young students with a unique blend of instructional methods and techniques. Ko12 instruction engages a students mind, their physical body, and their affect. Ko12 students graduate with the knowledge they need and the confidence they desire. They graduate with a love of learning.
Ko12 students do project-based activities. They receive direct instruction, and they have real-world experiences at school and in the community. They learn and practice kindness and what it means to be a good person, who is honest, caring, and has integrity.
Ko12 Kids School was founded by a mom who had a difficult child. She had no where to turn. Her son needed more than what was available in the academic community. Today, he's a curious college student, eager to succeed and a desire to be his best.
Our mission is to provide an engaging learning environment that can support each young student's desire to become the best version of themselves. Ko12 Kids graduate ready, willing, and able to take on the rest of their academic career. They graduate with a solid foundation of academic knowledge, a desire to be a lifelong learner, and the confidence that they can succeed.
