Participating in the education of our children and developing the strong sense of community that comes from working together toward a common goal are central to the mission of Tierra Pacifica. Our aim is to have all families actively involved in the community in a way that is meaningful both to the family and the school. We expect families to volunteer 12 - 15 hours per month (3 - 4 hours weekly in the classroom or an equivalent amount of time serving on a committee and/or performing a school support job).
Tierra Pacifica Charter School is a parent participation school.
