Explore 2000, my son spent 4 years at cramming information into his head and memorizing facts and figures. At Explore 2000, he is learning more than ever by being exposed to material with hands on learning. Explore already starts with highly intelligent children but takes it a step further by developing the whole child as opposed to rote memorization and scores. We couldn't be happier!

My daughter is a first year student at Explore 2000. The classes are interactive, challenging, and small in size. The teachers are knowledgeable and sensitive to each student's educational needs. After school tutoring programs are available, as well as exciting clubs. I could not be happier with my daughter's educational experience at Explore 2000. I believe great schools start with exceptional leadership. Ms. Lin is compassionate, supportive and involved. Explore 2000 is a program I would encourage and highly recommend to anyone who is interested in progressive learning environment.

We have field trips 3 times a MONTH and we have to make so many GREAT projects. To the parents who said HORRIBLE thngs about this school: YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY WRONG THIS SCHOOL IS FABULOUS AND IS ALWAYS GIVING US CONTACT. I ALWAYS LEARN IN THIS SCHOOL AND I AM ALWAYS LEARNING SOMETHING DIFFERENT EVERYDAY AND I LOVE THIS SCHOOL. They also always have contact with us.

I'm in eighth grade at this school and i think that it has definitely changed, and not for the better. the school used to be a really great one, where i felt like i was really being challenged and learning to my full potential. now, almost the entire staff has changed, and it's just not the same. we don't learn much and teachers allow the students to basically do whatever we want. the beginning of the school year started out better, but all of a sudden we're doing things like 'circle time' where we talk about feelings rather than using that time for our research. and then the teachers wonder why no one has met their deadlines. Explore 2000 needs a lot of work if it wants to get back to the great school it once was.

Well I am a 8th grader here at Explore 2000 and i think the program is going downhill. We don't really do anything inside the classes but sit there and talk to our friends. The teachers don't really care what your do, as long as you show them anything about what you did that day its fine with them. I am very dissapointed about how this program is turning out. I was looking forward to my last year, but now I just can't wait to get pout of here. The teachers need to become more involved and need to challenge us! At this point I feel as I'm back in 7th grade again. PLEASE IMPROVE!

First off I'm a current 8th grader at Explore 2000. Over the pass three years this school has not met my needs and what i had expected in this progran. Coming into this school with out much knowledge made me question wether their teaching method was right for me. I think that this school could do alot better and could step up and be the top school but now this school is at the bottom of my list. The teachers are fine but the way this school is run is not what i want. Many of the students have complained and some have even left i think if the want this school to be the best have will have to make alot of changes.

i am currently a third year(8th grader) at Explore 2000, and I think it is a great school. For the most part, the teachers really care about what we learn, not just academically, but in all aspects of our lives. With project based learning, we learn more than just school lessons. We learn life lessons. Also, because of the small class sizes and integrated learning, we are all like one big family. Everyone knows everybody, and it's a really nice atmosphere. We could get more extracurriculars such as sports, but this is an overall good school.

We were very disappointed with this school for various reasons. A big reason was the reluctance to include parents in the teaching process. As pro-active parents of a 12 y.o, we expected the school to be much more accountable to us, and to value our role in our child's education. Very few memos were sent home about what our kids were doing, there were no events that included the parents, no contact info was given so we weren't able to contact other parents; website contains nothing of interest or value to parents except photos of the facilitators and students, no info about the facilitators or directors, no important dates like spring break or the last day of school. I believe my child learned a lot about being independent and doing research, and I think the program was very good at one time, but def needs improvement!
