Back-in-School Night

Upper School parents and caregivers were invited for a glimpse of what learning looks and feels like in Penn Charter Upper School classrooms at our "Back-in-School Night" on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2023 from 7-8:30 p.m.

The night included more than 30 “lessons” pulled directly from Upper School classes and taught by Penn Charter faculty and staff. Crafted by our skilled teachers, the lessons leverage interactions in the classroom to generate questions, encourage critical discourse, create opportunities for cognitive dissonance, and support meaning-making. 

Also Featured: Portrait of a Penn Charter Learner

Our Portrait of a Penn Charter Learner is deeply embedded in our educational program. How this synergy happens was also highlighted during the program. Each course was connected to one element of the Portrait to allow attendees to experience how the Portrait plays out in the schoolhouse.

An optional light dinner provided by the Upper School parent chairs was available prior to the event.
