My child loves going to this school. The school has great teachers and low turnover rate, even new teachers are great and highly involved with their students, parents are also very involved in the school and it shows.

This is a great school and they are now rated in the top 10% of elementary schools in Colorado (John Irwin Award Winner). This award takes into account attendance, behavior incidences and academic performance. They are clearly on the upward path.

We are looking to move our kids out of this school. When we first started the principal was amazing. Then she was primates. Now there is a principal who does not care about her students. This principal only cares about policy not the student. She is very disconnected and does not care.

Good school. The principal keeps things in line without being overbearing. Good teachers. Parents that care. Lots of parents walk the kids to school. So, it feels like a community because you get to know everyone.

Run away. If you love your kids, choice them into another school. My son went to Explorer for kindergarten and first grade. His kindergarten teacher was awful and needed to retire 10 years ago. The administration claimed to not know the bullying this teacher was doing to my child, but I don't believe that. I brought the problems to their attention and they still did nothing. I knew there was a problem when he would cry if I showed up at school during the day. I found out after leaving this school that he was being bullied by other students, in front of his para and teacher. I don't understand how any adult can stand by and watch a child being mistreated, by teachers and students alike. The administration is worthless, they don't take action when there is a problem. Love your kids, pick another school!!! If I could them 0 stars, I would...
