The teachers at Explorer Academy saved my life. Literally. I was torn apart mentally and emotionally at my High School. The teachers didn't care and they didn't want me to succeed. I was done trusting adults and students. The teachers at Explorer Academy fought tooth and nail to earn my trust and show me my potential that they saw. They never gave up on me when I was being stubborn or emotional, and they were always willing to listen and support me. They never let me give up and always tried to help me understand issues that I didn't get right away like Science or Math. It was because of them that I ended up not taking my life, graduating High School, and attending my first college.

My favorite experience was when I went to an ASB Leadership Camp on Mount Baker with my classmates and the teacher who ran the ASB. At first, it was difficult for me to bond with my classmates and want to be near them, but after my teacher convinced me to do Open Mic in front of the entire camp, I ended up being loved and respected by everyone there. Including my classmates. The teachers genuinely care and they focus on you 100%. They want you to succeed and will always be there to listen to you or make sure you're safe. They never don't have time for you. Even when they're busy, they always make time.
Teachers are amazing. Extremely supportive and they give individual attention to each student and work as hard as possible to make sure the student is successful and understanding the material. I always felt I was terrible at Math and Science, but they made sure to never give up on me and help me in every way that they could. Academics are usually your typical Science, Math, Writing, etc. At least when I was there. Everything you need to be ready for College.
