Expeditionary Learning


ExpeditionaryWhen students and teachers are engaged in work that is challenging, adventurous and meaningful, learning and achievement flourish. Our mission is to create classrooms where teachers can fulfill their highest aspirations, and students achieve more than they think possible, becoming active contributors to building a better world.  


When students have completed their academic career and entered adult life, they’ll be judged not by performance on basic skills tests—but rather, by the quality of their work and the quality of their character. This premise serves as the foundation for EL Education’s overarching vision of increasing student engagement and elevating and expanding student achievement. To realize that vision, we focus on student excellence in three core areas: - Mastery of Knowledge and Skills - Character - High-Quality School Work
Our core literacy tool at Soaring Hawk for K-6 reading and writing instruction is the EL Education Language Arts Curriculum. This is an award-winning, comprehensive standards-based core literacy program that engages teachers and students in active and meaningful learning through compelling, real-world content.
