Our academic program for grades 3–5 taps into this natural inquisitiveness with courses that truly engage young minds and reinforce key concepts in meaningful ways. And since this age group typically needs more direct, focused guidance, we bring teachers and parents together in close collaboration to ensure each student’s success.
For each grade in Lower School, the Rise online curriculum includes courses in the four core subjects—language arts, math, science, and social studies. Children also have access to music and art courses at each grade level, plus world language options.
Every course is flexibly paced, allowing students to move at the speed that best suits their needs. Those who are ready to move on to the next lesson or unit can do so, while those who need just a little more time may take it.
Nearly all courses are complemented by a wealth of hands-on teaching tools you’d find in a traditional classroom. Plus, our regular math course feature advanced “adaptive” technology that intelligently adjusts to your student’s skill and knowledge level, offering practice in topics where it’s needed most.
