Like all theatre teachers since March 2020, the Arts Engagement department has pivoted to online and distance learning offerings. We are pleased to continue our collaboration with the School in the Park Program funded by Price Philanthropies. SITP is a multi-visit museum program that blends formal and informal learning by utilizing the rich resources of museums and educational institutions in Balboa Park. The program is designed with a standards-based curriculum to integrate what is learned at school with authentic learning connections from the Park institutions. This structured program focuses on high student expectations, alignment with state education standards, and authentic learning activities as students spend their time learning and gaining new experiences within museum settings. To learn more about this unique program, please visit SchoolInThePark.net.

During School in the Park at The Old Globe, 5th graders from Rosa Parks Elementary School and 6th, 7th, and 8th graders from Wilson Middle School in San Diego discover why theatre matters. Students explore the world of theatre and make connections to their own stories and their own communities through activities focusing on discovery, creativity and authentic learning.
