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

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.
