Over the three years I spent as a middle school student at Explorations Preparatory School, I learned more about how the world is, was, and will be than I ever learned before, or have since. The style of learning and the personal environment made it so that everyone can learn as quickly and as efficiently as possible. However, it was never bad to be behind or to struggle with a concept that the whole grade was excelling in; you could go to a friend, and your teachers had no qualms about staying after class had ended to help you catch up or just finish hearing a story.These tight-knit groups are a keystone to the EPS experience. The teachers are mentors and encouraging in all endeavors, your friends are confidants and sharers of inside jokes. The rigorous curriculum was always challenging, but the help you could get for even the most trivial matter was readily available. Circumstances prepare you for how to form friendships with people you may not have clicked with at first, and the close proximity teaches you how to reconcile and apologize, and how to forgive. The teachers help you learn independently and show you how to do the work yourself. They are always open to discussion and willing to have a whole class dedicated to a seminar answering a student question, as long as you still learn. My ability to manage my time, workload, and assignments at EPS had me so well prepared, that I now find myself with the skills required to succeed at a rigorous private high school.
