Cedar Park Elementary School

About the School:

Cedar Park Elementary uses an Expeditionary Learning (EL) model. Expeditionary Learning is student-driven, deep and engaging learning connected to the real world that embeds grade level skills and competencies. Expeditionary Learning is a project -based, student-led learning model. Instead of having each subject as a separate entity, this model allows a class to dive deeply into an expedition/project and the teacher to integrate skills and standards into the expedition. Additionally, expeditions have connections to real-world learning. In order to enhance this real-world connection, classes participate in field trips or invite experts to come in and teach them more about their chosen expedition.
