About Marsh Avenue Expeditionary Learning School

MAELS seeks to inspire the motivation to learn, engage teachers and students in new levels of focus and effort, and create an environment where students become leaders of their own learning. We provide a model that challenges students with high-level tasks and active roles in the classroom. This model is succeeding at every grade level. Our mission will be accomplished by working with parents to provide students, who are in uniform dress code, with programs that reflect high expectations and promote excellence in a nurturing environment.

Our Mission

MAELS was founded on an understanding and encouragement of the diverse learning needs and styles of all students. We are committed to providing a learning environment which is conducive to developing the unique intellectual, social, physical and emotional potential of each child. An essential component of our vision rests in our belief that we must be responsive to the unique learning style of every child. We believe that all students can learn when instruction is responsive to the variety of intelligences student’s bring to the classroom. The goal of our dedicated faculty is to maximize the learning experience through instruction tailored to each student’s needs. Equal emphasis on character and academics, a caring and dedicated team of teachers in a small setting, “hands-on” instruction, Outward Bound adventure, and Expeditionary Learning give our students the opportunity to move deeper into the curriculum at every level.
