||School in the Park (San Diego, CA)
||School in the Park is an innovative program that shifts the location of "school" from a traditional classroom setting in an inner-city school, to the resources and educational opportunities available at museums in San Diego's Balboa Park. A relevant instructional environment is created as hands-on learning challenges students to become active participants in their own education. Rosa Parks and Hamilton Elementary Schools participate in this program that allows third, fourth and fifth grade students to spend up to eight weeks at Balboa Park, where they participate in week-long educational programs at nine institutions.
