Advance beyond school grade level
By progressing at one's own pace, advancing beyond school grade level is possible
If children continue to study at their own pace, at a level that is appropriate to their ability, they will catch up to their school grade level and eventually advance far beyond it.
The pursuit of potential
By studying at their “just right” level, children are able to advance beyond their school grade level on their own, without being specifically taught. Kumon believes that all children possess boundless potential and through instruction at the “just right” level, it is possible to uncover this underlying potential in children.
Fostering confidence and a healthy self-esteem
Studying beyond school grade level not only benefits students academically but also helps them to develop important qualities such as confidence and self-esteem. The correlation between social maturity and study beyond school grade level is considered one of the most significant benefits of the Kumon Method.
