The children are given many expeditionary learning experiences...they research and discover many answers instead of just "reading or hearing" about what they study, Experts are frequently invited to work with classes/groups of students. Personal and very successful. The students can choose to go to the (9-12) expeditionary schools in Portland or go to the regular public schools which are also very good.

i wouldn't send my kid here even if it was the last school on earth. you'd be better off just throwing your kid to a pack of wolves and hoping for the best.

I attend King, and I love it. I think expeditionary learning is the best way to learn because everybody really gets involved and cares about what they are doing. We are learning about things that are relevant today, not just what a bunch of dead guys thought of. For example, in one expedition, Riverworks, we learned about the Presumpscot River and it's history, how to canoe, how to test water for D.O., pH, temperature, and E. coli bacteria. We learned how to write a speech and make scatter plots. We made a PowerPoint showing what we had done, and in the end, we actually canoed the Presumpscot River and tested the water. We then had a culminating event at which every student spoke about the expedition in some way or another. We learned about things that mattered and were pertinent, and we still are doing so. Thank you King Middle School!
