The Aventa (K¹²) online middle and high school environment blends the best features of the company’s world-renowned K–5 learning environment—the elegant and research-driven design, the compelling interactivity, the ease of use of both online and offline content—with key features designed to make the high school experience successful, given the far more complex high school world of content, skills, and time management. A typical middle or high school student is assigned up to six rigorous courses per semester in order to ensure a seamless educational progression and complete all requirements necessary for a Hermiston School District diploma.
