Open House

January 27, 2015 5:00pm-7:00pm

A friendly, happy environment filled with student artwork welcomes one and all to EXPO – a lively school with an extraordinary range of resources. “Looped classrooms” allow students to have the same teacher for more than one school year in grades 1-2 and grades 3-4. This unique classroom structure provides deep connections between teachers and students. Grade 5 is a leadership year, in which our oldest students take on greater responsibility. EXPO offers accelerated math, physical education, and gifted and talented programs. We also emphasize projects in arts, science and technology/engineering – students might write and produce a play one year and build cars the next. Our one-of-a-kind outdoor play structure, Treasure Island, was lovingly built and is maintained by parent volunteers.

Pathway: EXPO > Ramsey (F1) or Highland Middle (F2) > Central (F1) or Highland Senior (F2)
