|Hooker Oak Open Structured Classroom Program has provided quality
educational experiences for children since 1973. It was started by Chico
parents and educators who wanted a learning model that emphasized the
development of the whole child. In 2005, this program expanded to
include grades seven and eight to offer a seamless K-8 experience. The
Hooker Oak K-8 structure allows the nurturing and support of all
students in a personal, in-depth way for nine continuous years.
Continuity in curriculum, facilities, staff members and program means a
seamless transition from elementary school to middle school at an
important point in a student's academic career. It is a unique
opportunity to prepare for the rigors of high school and adjusting to a
set of different teachers and changing classrooms throughout the day--in
a familiar, supportive environment.
