Expeditionary Learning Parent Association at LJMS

Expeditionary Learning, or ExL, is a program for 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Lawrence E. Jones Middle School. The program was established in 1995. It is based on the principle that students of all ages, learning styles, and ability levels not only can learn, but also want to learn. ExL is designed to provide a powerful learning environment through the use of integrated thematic study units, reinforced by real-life excursions and hands-on projects. This combination captures students’ natural passion to learn and develops curiosity, skills, knowledge, and courage needed in today’s society.

This group is set up for communication and interaction between current ExL families. Parents must give written permission for their kids to be in the group. Alumni families are also welcome.
