Our philosophy

At IXL our core philosophy is that, given the proper environment, every child is capable of learning. On this steadfast foundation, we have built the ultimate focused learning environment—free of distractions and packed with meaningful challenges: a place where every moment is spent really learning.

IXL is an environment where guessing is not an option, and success is earned through hard work and genuine understanding of each concept. To facilitate this deeper level of learning, every skill on IXL has been designed to engage students' minds. We approach topics from multiple angles, offer visual representations, provide a host of interactive activities, and more. By the time students have mastered a skill, their understanding of that topic is solid. And that's the greatest motivator for all students: knowing that when their study time is finished, they really “get it.”

While IXL provides a serious and focused environment to learn, it's also a fun place to be. From the vibrant images that permeate IXL's skills, to the enticing awards and certificates that are hidden throughout the site, students cannot wait to jump into IXL—and you'll have trouble tearing them away.

Best of all, thanks to IXL's tracking tools, you will never miss a second of your students' exciting learning journey. We can give you information that matters—exactly which questions your students missed, where students' trouble spots lie, how they are progressing over time, and how much knowledge they have genuinely understood and retained.
