New K-8 Spark Public Charter School Coming to Sunnyvale in Fall 2015

On October 1, 2014, the Santa Clara Board of Education approved the opening of Spark Charter, a Free K-8 Public School in Sunnyvale. The school will:

  • offer an exciting curriculum structured around authentic hands-on learning. Exploratory projects will be an integral part of the program – not just and add-on – designed to fully engage students, foster creativity, develop analytical skills, and promote deep understanding of subjects.
  • Help students develop social and emotional skills that will enable them to express their feelings constructively, build strong and positive friendships, resist negative peer pressure, and create a supportive community of learners.
  • Afford parents the opportunity to share their own personal skills, knowledge, and culture with Spark students, providing them access to a vast array of ideas, perspectives, and information.
  • Be the first K-8 public school in Sunnyvale! Spark Charter will begin with grades K-6 in Fall 2015, and add one grade per year to achieve K-8.
