March 6 Open House

The January 23 Open House at Menlo Park Academy (10-11:30 a.m.) is a chance to explore the school’s approach to learning, meet with teachers in grades K-8, and provides an opportunity for families to explore how their children would fit at Menlo Park Academy.

Open Houses provide a detailed overview of:

  • Key indicators of gifted children, and what it means to be "gifted."
  • How gifted learning is different from traditional classrooms, and Menlo Park Academy's approach to curriculum.
  • Why Menlo Park Academy is right for your gifted child, and the qualification criteria to enroll.
  • Breakout sessions to “virtually visit” with MPA teachers by grade.
