Parker teaches students in Grade 1, 2 and 3 in the Adventure Class. It is a unique program where older students help younger students, and involves parents and extended family members, as well. The program emphasizes hands-on learning, real life discovery and integrated life skills. A lively mix of ages, academic levels, skills and interests are further enriched by family and community involvement. The Adventure Class offers a warm, family-like learning environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation and mutual support.
