Explorations Reviews

Explorations is a fantastic school. The teachers are sweet, understanding, knowledgeable and they feel for your child. They learn about each and every student. The principle is fantastic, she will take the time to listen to each student and explain to them in detail about the subject you are asking. Even the secretary cares about your child. I can't say enough about this school. My child was suicidal when she came to this school and failing every class. Explorations saved my daughters life and now she is in high honors. Thank you for everything you all have done. I wouldn't change a thing in this school. You will never find a another school with such a great staff of people. Thank you for everything.
