First week of kindergarten for my daughter and she can't get out the house fast enough. First impression warm and inviting environment. Looking forward to a great school year.

My Daughter Sherlissa's Roberts confidence was boosted upon entering Empower Charter. Her Grades were increased in the 80's and 90's. it was a total difference from Public school to Charter School. I salute Empower Charter and cant wait for my other daughter to get accepted:)

I taught at Explore for multiple years. It used to be a community of experienced and quality teachers, strong family involvement, decent to good leadership, with a strong curricular vision (especially in math), and trust. This past year, Explore's community lost all of these things. We had no principal, no PTA, and saw a mass exodus of the teaching staff. Many staff members were fired throughout the year and the large number that are not returning left for various reasons, among them a lack of quality leadership (they were bosses not leaders,) little to no space for teacher independence and creativity, the emergence of co-teaching with a large class size (30 students), and a philosophical misalignment with the recent "no-excuses" approach of the school. I know that families in the community need Explore to be the place that it once was. No, they need it to be better than it was at its best. I encourage Explore families to create a PTA and continue to voice their concerns with leadership.
