Caspar Creek Learning Community is a non-classroom-based K-5 public charter school program serving families in the greater Mendocino-Fort Bragg area of the northern California coast. Attendance-optional classes are held at our learning center, which borders both Russian Gulch State Park and Jackson Demonstration State Forest near the scenic coastal village of Caspar, California. Three full-time certificated teachers and one aide serve some 40 students in Kindergarten through fifth grade. The program features multi-age, small-group learning environments, interactive learning with peers and staff, project-based learning, developmentally appropriate use of technology, active involvement of parents and other community members, and incorporates the natural habitat provided by the learning center’s unique setting. A seven-member parent board is responsible for decision-making.
