Polaris Expeditionary Learning School Ratings & Reviews

November 28, 2017 Submitted by a parent
I have two children at this school, and their experience has been extremely positive. The K-12 environment is rich with a genuine focus on deeper learning. Both of my kids regularly have opportunities to apply and broaden their skills in the real world, through field work. For example, while learning about the concept of community, my daughter's class took the city bus to a meeting with the mayor. My son's class, exploring different topics in writing, visited local spots for inspiration, including the library and a community garden. The atmosphere in the school is warm and welcoming, run by a team of administrators and teachers who embrace best practices in education. They encourage my kids to take ownership of their learning and focus on balanced growth, from academics to emotional intelligence. I feel fortunate for this school in our community.

I really wanted to like this school but it's just like any other school. It's trying really hard to say it's different. It's not. There are teachers here who only care about themselves and their image. If you see through this and you don't kiss butt, they will dislike you and punish you with lower grades and zero encouragement. Some will even demean you and your work in front of other students just to prove they have some kind of power.The school says there is no bullying here. Did I mention teachers use grades and lack of encouragement to bully? There is also rampant bullying among students. I've seen students gang up and walk up to someone and say "We hate you. Why don't you kill yourself" and laugh and walk away. Ironically these bullies are the students winning all the awards and getting all the praise from the teachers who only care about image. So what the school really teaches is, bow down to "authority" and don't think for yourself or you'll get punished. If you want to thrive this isn't the school for you despite all the trying it's doing to convince everyone it's "cool".

I attended Polaris for nearly six years and graduated recently. In theory, Expeditionary Learning was a great idea. However, it's not always well implemented at this school. There are some great intensive opportunities, but outside of those few weeks a year, EL isn't particularly present in the classrooms. When it is done, it can feel a bit forced and occasionally distracts from the learning rather than adding to it. The biggest redeeming factor for Polaris is its staff- the vast majority of teachers are wonderful and dedicated. However, because it's such a small school, one or two bad teachers can drag down quality of education for everyone. In particular, Polaris has a focus on qualitative measures of growth rather than test scores and homework. In theory this sounds great, but in practice, it made the grading system absolutely ridiculous and arbitrary. My family struggled with a couple teachers and their grading methods- we raised some issues to the principal, who was incredibly helpful and insightful, but there wasn't much change. Additionally, the behavior standards are questionable. Most of the students are great, but I felt that a few poorly behaved kids took all of the teachers' attention and really hurt the quality of the classroom culture. Polaris doesn't separate students into advanced or remedial classes. It's great because all types of kids can learn together. As a result, the test scores have really been improving recently. However, I feel that a lot of the success in this model comes at the expense of the gifted students. The teachers definitely try to challenge GT students, but it really isn't happening consistently. The most helpful learning opportunity for me was the chance to take classes at the local community college. Overall, a lot of kids at Polaris are there because they found a great community and niche, myself included. However, this school can do better with its consistency of education and staff accountability.

My experience with Polaris has been nothing but positive and I can't say enough positive things about the staff and students there. Students seem, for the most part, to be enthusiastic learners and teachers consistently strive to challenge students by helping them learn how to think rather than what to think. Also note that their composite ACT scores have improved markedly over the 9 years that they've been around from 17.7 to 22.5.

This year I am a freshmen at Polaris. Though this is my first year (I recently switched over from a much more traditional school), I know I have certainly found my place. It's incredibly close-knit which I think is a benefit of the small size. I enjoy learning by doing and discussion rather than lectures and textbooks. I have found that Polaris is definitely the best place for experiential learning. It's also an amazingly open-minded place. You can be yourself and nobody could care less if you have piercings and purple hair or are gay or button your shirts to the top and go to church every day. Teachers are always there for you, always there to help you one-on-one with schoolwork or even personal problems. It is very laid back and students have a lot of freedom. I'm sure lots of people might disagree with this and think that "hey, these kids are much too young to have that much choice" but the truth is that you won't be prepared for college or the so called "real world" unless you learn how not to abuse freedom. The school is fairly casual and puts very little stress on standardized testing and homework. It provides lots of opportunities to find yourself. I love this school.
