ASI’s K-5 Curriculum
vs. Traditional Model

Teaching and learning in an online school for elementary students need to target the specific needs of each learner. In the traditional classroom, students must often fit the same mold and pace as the rest of the class. This traditional model can cause students to fall behind and increase frustration, limiting learners’ ability to achieve their full potential.

Through the personalized learning that students receive in the ASI K-5 curriculum, students are able to move at their own individual pace and spend more time on areas of deficiency to work toward mastery in a safe and engaging environment.

This approach allows teachers to spend more time teaching to the needs of each student and the opportunity to work on individual learning styles and plans.
