As the martial arts enrichment instructor at Explorer Elementary, I have to say that I have never seen a more tight knit faculty and a more nurturing principal than Jill Green. She genuinely cares deeply for her teachers, parents and students. Each time she has stopped by my class, she treats the children ...  Read more

Explorer is an amazing school. The 2-star review included in this section is completely inaccurate.

Explorer has a multitude of part time teachers. They do fund raising yet have 4 teachers per class/not an effective use of money. The principal is great with the kids but difficult for parents to communicate with. She cannot handle any criticism. People who donate more with kids who are violent ...  Read more
