The pursuit of potential
Studying beyond school grade level: fostering confidence and a healthy self-esteem
The Kumon Method aims to help children attain strong academic abilities by enabling them to advance beyond their school grade level through the “just right” level of learning.
Kumon believes that all children possess boundless potential
After having observed many children over the past 50 years, we at Kumon believe that all children possess boundless potential. Through instruction at the “just right” level, it is possible to uncover this underlying potential in children. By studying at their “just right” level, children are able to advance beyond their school grade level on their own, without being specifically taught.
Studying beyond school grade not only develops academic abilities but also fosters confidence and self-esteem
Once students reach the stage of advanced learning, they are able to develop a deeper awareness of others around them. Based on observations of students, those studying
beyond school grade level actually become kinder and more considerate of their peers and others. This correlation between social maturity and studying beyond school grade level is considered one of the most significant benefits of the Kumon Method.
