There seems to be an overload of parents attenting 'special meetings' regarding disciplinary issues with their children. Very little cooperation is set forth in supporting parents in guiding their children through the educational process. We know several children who attend this school, as well as our own, and the children seem to be upset most of the time.

Explorer is a Title I school with over 1/3 of students receiving Free or Reduced Lunch, but given the challenges it faces regarding attendance and student motivation, the school does and excellent job. Staff morale is high, and teachers meet the students where they're at academically and then challenge them to go higher.

Overall, Explorer deserves praise for its efforts and successes in meeting student needs and improving student performance.
