Pivot Charter School, North Bay has expanded our highly successful 6th-12th grade blended learning program to grades Kindergarten through 5th grades. We are utilizing the highly acclaimed, Compass Learning online curriculum with additional supplemental materials coupled with the guidance, tutoring and resource center support provided by a CA-credentialed teacher. In the Pivot elementary program, parents assume a key role in overseeing the education of their student. Using Pivot educational resources, and supported by CA-credentialed teachers, students in the elementary program will progress at a level that is commensurate with their abilities. Pivot credentialed teachers ensure that students are progressing and receiving the support they need; they get to know their families and students very well and show how much they care about a student’s success and love of learning each and every day. Pivot elementary can serve as a perfect support system for homeschooling parents looking to supplement their child’s education.
This elementary school program is open to any interested family in Sonoma, Solano, Mendocino, Lake, Napa and Marin Counties and features:
• Personalized Learning Paths
