In a recent letter to the editor as published on Greater Greater Washington, Jessica Wodatch, executive director of Two Rivers Public Charter writes about the common factor shared by DC's two most sought-after schools: Expeditionary Learning.

"At a time when many schools have taken the joy out of learning, Expeditionary Learning schools put it front and center.

And they have fun doing it."
