Mission/Philosophy

The mission of The Expedition School (TES) is to embrace the natural curiosity of children and empower our TES “Explorers” to become innovative problem solvers and community builders through project-based learning.

At TES, we believe that children thrive in a diverse learning environment that is child centered, strength focused, and connected to larger, real-world themes and ideas.

To embody this mission, TES provides a schoolwide Project Based Learning curriculum, with a focus on STEM integration. We also employ a student-centered, social and emotional learning approach to teaching and learning through implementation of Responsive Classrooms
