A public school that operates under a contract or "charter," Explore Knowledge Academy receives its charter from the Clark County School District. It serves grades kindergarten through twelve. Four-day school weeks and multi-age classrooms are especially popular with students. The school takes a child-centered, project-based approach to learning. With the help of teachers and parents, children design a Personal Exploration Plan (PEP), which allows them to develop projects that not only explore personal interests but also meet educational standards and objectives. The school also uses technology in many facets of its daily instruction.
