Teaching the Whole Child

The Open Classroom is a K-8 free public charter school where children learn to be capable leaders, problem-solvers, and friends.

In addition to academic needs, the Open Classroom considers the social, emotional, creative, cognitive, and physical needs of every child.

The Lottery for the 2023-2024 school year will run on February 15th. We will notify parents of placement or waitlist spots the first week of March. We will continue to accept applications throughout the summer. You can read more about the admissions process HERE. **Please note that we require all prospective parents to attend a tour. You can RSVP for those below.

Creating a Community of Learners

Community of Learners

The Open Classroom Charter School is a parent cooperative learning community in which teachers and parents collaborate to educate the whole child and empower life-long learners. Our founders named the program the Open Classroom because they wanted the program to stand for a flexible approach to education, where the needs of each child are considered individually.
