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.

The Open Classroom became part of the Salt Lake City School District in 1977, starting with eight multi-aged classrooms housed in two separate elementary schools. The Program was founded by a group of parents and teachers who wanted to be actively involved in their children’s learning.
