Grades 6–8 are critical years for students to address gaps in learning, master challenging concepts, and prepare for high school. K12-powered online middle school in Iowa offers students the ability to work through topics at their own pace.

Students follow a traditional school calendar, are taught by Iowa-licensed teachers, and have access to extracurricular activities that connect them with peers.

Students attend scheduled, live online classes from the comfort of home or anywhere there’s an internet connection. Online and offline assignments are completed independently, in small groups of peers, or with the help of the Learning Coach—a parent or another responsible adult who gives support, guidance, and motivation to the student.

As students progress through middle school, they’ll take on more responsibility for their education, preparing them for the more challenging environment of high school. Learn more about the role of a Learning Coach and explore the resources available to help families succeed with online learning.
