Exploration Academy Reviews

Currently, I'm enrolled in a project-based charter school that doesn't operate by having classes. Instead, we complete required learning targets to get a full education. To complete these targets we participate in seminars and devise projects to fulfill our yearly quota. Then to showcase our work, we create a website profile portfolio and hold open houses for the community.
I wish the dependency ratio for project quality improved. If you were to walk into one of our showcases, you will notice a pattern: for every one excellent project, you see 2-3 shitty quality ones. Those kids are there because they thought EA was "easy," stemming from there technically being no homework. We can't kick them out to allow in students who could actually prosper under PBL, just "help" them. A shame really, any help goes over their head. They create the impression that my education quality is poor. In the end, how much you're willing to put in you'll get out.

This school is honestly one of the best out there. I truly feel like all the advisors really care about me and want me to succeed. They go beyond their duties as teachers and impact each and every one of the students' lives. The community is very tight-nit and positive. I've made some of my best friends there. I love how it gives me a chance to prepare for the college life after high school and I get more experience in making decisions form myself and managing my time. It also helps that it is very personalized, but not to the point where you're completely on your own because you can always ask for help.
