I am very impressed with this school. One of the strongest points about this school and district 20 is communication with the parents. They do an excellent job communicating with parents, from emails, to videos, to district classes, parent portal etc... Explorer has an active PTA and the money raised ...  Read more

Explorer Elementary is a fantastic school for many reasons but one of my favorites is the fact they reach a huge diversity in students.

We choiced into this school from another fairly new D20 school. There is no comparison to the quality in education, parent involvement and morale among students in Explorer vs. my child's former school. She is challenged in the classroom, she feels safe, and she is being taught all subjects! The teachers ...  Read more

I love Exploxer ES. I didn't realize how much until we moved out of state last year. My daughter went to school here from 1st to 4th grade. The atmosphere there is pleasant. I always felt welcomed at this school. I loved that they have Spanish and Art classes. I also feel that the math and writing ...  Read more

My daughter is enrolled in Kinder here and has learned so much in the first semester. The teachers really take a hands on approach to learning.
