Core Values

Springing from our foundational beliefs, our Core Values are what we strive to embody. The Community Commitments are the Core Values in action and serve as a guide for our daily conduct. All members of our community make the following commitments to ensure that we live out our core values and that every member of our community is empowered, challenged, inspired, and loved.

At Explore!, we actively seek to cultivate growth in our school's five core values, which have become interwoven into the fabric of the school.

We encourage exploration and discovery in teaching and learning. We learn from each other and collaborate to make a positive impact on our school, families, and world. We are mindful of others and are kind and helpful to ensure we all experience success. We take action to do the right thing even when it’s hard. We stand up for others, admit our mistakes, and ask for help when we need it.

We will do whatever it takes to ensure we create work that is worthy of pride.
