World of Inquiry School is an Expeditionary Learning school dedicated to inquiry-based learning which emphasizes learning by doing. We take a student-centered, active-learning approach that focuses on questioning, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Learning occurs through grade-level expeditions (in-depth studies of a single topic or theme) integrated with New York State Standards.
