K-6 Expeditionary Learning School
Our motto is, “We are Crew not Passengers." Crew is the heart and spirit of our school. We understand, CREW begins with each one of us first. Our Crew is committed to model and teach our students that CREW is US, not me, and we do the hard work together. We continue to build our Conway Community Crew this year. We thank you for entrusting us with your student, but more than ever, we are excited about our future to achieve more than we thought possible. Learn more.
