Explorer Middle School Ratings & Reviews

Although my daughter didn't hate this school, it just isn't very good school in academics, social, or teacher supports/encouragements. All teachers have too many students to care about anything but getting day to day. Some have anger issues and some are just checked out. I'm not sure how this school have 4 stars. Maybe because they really care about AZ merit testing? This school is in upper middle class area so I was really hoping to have better schools. I am hoping other parents do take time to write constructive reviews for changes in the future.

My son enjoys Explorer. In my experience the teachers have always been easy to communicate with and make themselves available to the parent and student if needed. Its a clean campus, they offer a variety of extra curricular activities, and in my personal opinion a great school. There is a Boys and Girls Club walking distance which helps with after school care.

As a former student, I feel the school was mediocre at best. Every single one of my 7th grade teachers was awesome, but the quality sharply decline in 8th grade. While I had one phenomenal English teacher, the rest were terrible in comparison. A few appeared to have anger management issues, which does not make for a good learning environment. However, this pales in comparison to my biggest gripe: the rampant bullying completely and utterly disregarded by the office staff and teachers alike. I understand that Middle School is a particularly nasty time for a lot of people growing up, but that doesn't give the staff the right to turn a blind eye to those in need. Getting punched and getting my head shoved into a locker were just a few of the many unpleasant experiences I had there. Also, any form of self-defense results in the same punishment as whoever started it, meaning you aren't allowed to stick up for yourself either. Overall, I only recommend Explorer for those who haven't had bullying issues in the past. Think carefully before considering it.

Average at best, going to the School board tomorrow to put a complaint in. The English teacher is disgruntled mess. I have never had a teacher blatantly not take responsible for her mistakes. As a concerned parent I don't want to be told what other kids have done, I care about my child and I am here to advocate for my son. She is the only teacher I have an issue with here at the school. The assistant principal is no prize either. When my son's hat was moved and ultimately was just a joke between boys she could't be bothered to go into a locked classroom to help recover it and let him go through a 4 day weekend thinking it was stolen. She was condescending on the phone, and although I have not met her in person I care not too. I am unhappy with a teacher that states she does not want the parent to solve the kids problems yet sends a email home weekly for you information. But don't consult her website like she states if you have questions because oh well it's wrong. She'll have to fix that. Twice this year. Oh and that's on your kid because she repeatedly tells them what they need to do. The website must be there for show.? Who knew?

This school is ridiculous! The assistant principal is worthless the teachers rude and I don't think the kids are anything worth mentioning. They don't care if they loose students and have even been told that if I am not happy with the school to find another! The teachers will stand in front of you say they adhd tell you they want perfection from your child but will not give perfection in return and then make a child with adhd feel stupid and even tell the class they have it! Can't wait to get my child out of here!!! Wish I could give negative stars!
