Explore Schools’ mission is to provide students with the academic skills and critical-thinking abilities they need to succeed in a college-preparatory high school. Specifically, Explore Schools aims to improve the life outcomes of students in traditionally low-income communities in Brooklyn by providing them with a pathway to college. We accomplish this by operating a K-8 program that focuses on a rigorous education anchored in math and literacy and by placing Explore Schools’ graduates in excellent college prep high schools.

Explore Charter School first opened its doors to 168 students in grades K-3 in 2002. Over the next seven years, the school team built a K-8 school model that enabled students to achieve academically, while also creating an environment in which staff and families would choose to remain year after year. In 2009, to help meet the increasing demand for outstanding public schools in New York City, the Explore Schools Network (ESI) was established, opening three new charter schools in Brooklyn: Empower, Excel, and Exceed. Today, the Explore network consists of 8 schools, located in six campuses, serving over 2,000 students in Brooklyn.
