WHO WE ARE 

Explore Schools is a network of public charter schools providing 2,000 students in Brooklyn with the outstanding education they deserve. We strive to provide students with the academic skills and critical-thinking abilities they need to succeed in a college-preparatory high school and beyond. As an organization, we acknowledge the detrimental impact of racism and systems of oppression. We envision a pathway to equity that features excellent curriculum and instruction in response to the opportunity gap—providing our scholars with access and opportunities to succeed. We commit to reflect individually on the roles we play within systems of oppression, and we channel our individual talents and cultural sensitivity to help our scholars and local community thrive. We celebrate diversity and are committed to building a talented team that reflects the backgrounds and experiences of our students and creates an inclusive environment for all employees.
