Providing more and better learning time, because all students deserve to develop their full potential.

Our Schools

We provide the schools in our network with a framework, guidance and support to build and sustain an active, balanced learning day that gives students approximately 35% more learning time at 10% additional cost to the school day. Check out these three school schedules to learn more about a typical day at an ExpandED School.
