For educators and policymakers interested in learning about Parker, we offer open visit days throughout the year. This is an ideal way for people new to Parker, charters schools, or Essential Schools to learn about how Parker functions and lives out its mission on a daily basis. The day includes an introductory session to Parker and the Coalition of Essential Schools. Participants observe classes throughout the day; student ambassadors and Parker faculty join participants for a question-and-answer session during lunch; and visitors return to the Sizer Teachers Center for final reflections at the end of the day.
The fee for Open Visit Days is $50 per person, which includes breakfast, lunch, and all materials. Visit days begin at 8:25 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m.
