Curriculum (K-5)

Hermiston Online Curriculum

Nurturing Young Minds

At Hermiston ONLINE!, we nurture inquisitive minds with the approach that Big Ideas + Consecutive Down Payments of Learning + Practice = Mastery. Throughout our K-5 course offerings, you will find certain recurring themes that build on the previous grades’ teaching and weave an ever-richer tapestry of knowledge. Our individualized approach means your child can go as fast or slow as he needs to. And with more than 700 lessons per subject, he/she can dive deeply into areas of interest.  Our half-time kindergarten program and full-time elementary and middle school programs offer a wide range of learning experiences.  Elementary programs (grades 1-5) normally consist of five concurrent core and elective courses, while middle school students experience up to six courses depending on age, ability, and interest.

Superior Curriculum

The curriculum was created by a team of experts at K¹², using tried-and-true educational approaches for instruction. Our core courses include Language Arts/English, Math, Science, History, Art, and Physical Education.  The lesson plans for each subject are integrated, so your child may be reading literature from the same time period as the art or history lesson she is studying. What begins as a story about a king who lost his wife may end up with an examination of the architecture and history of the Taj Mahal, built as a monument to a dead queen.

Bringing Lessons to Life

Lessons come to life with a rich mixture of on- and offline teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, original videos, and materials for hands-on experiments. Lessons are followed by assessments so you can be sure that your child has mastered a particular area before moving on, and built-in planning and progress tools make it easy to keep on track.
