About EL Education 
What do we do and why do we do it?

In Expeditionary Learning schools...

Learning is active... Students are scientists, urban planners, historians, and activists, investigating real 
community problems and collaborating with peers to develop creative, actionable solutions.
Learning is challenging... Students at all levels are pushed and supported to do more than they think they can. Excellence is expected in the quality of their work and thinking.

Learning is meaningful... Students apply their skills and knowledge to real-world issues and problems and make positive change in their communities. They see the relevance of their learning and are motivated by understanding that learning has purpose.

Learning is public... Through formal structures of presentation, exhibition, critique, and data analysis, students and teachers build a shared vision of pathways to achievement. 

Learning is collaborative... School leaders, teachers, students, and families share rigorous expectations for quality work, achievement, and behavior. Trust, respect, responsibility, and joy in learning permeate the school culture.
