Open Structure

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. The Hooker Oak structure allows the nurturing and support of all students in a personal, in-depth way for seven 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 secondary school and adjusting to a set of different teachers and changing classrooms throughout the day--in a familiar, supportive environment.
