DIVERSITY & EQUITY IN EDUCATION

We view excellent curriculum and instruction as a pathway to equity and a response to the opportunity gap. We are actively reimagining our curricular priorities and pedagogical approach as we work to prepare our students for the future world.
Our curriculum is culturally responsive, rigorous, and standards-aligned.
We believe children are natural problem-solvers, and so we value teaching that balances critical thinking with learning new skills and knowledge.
We cultivate student investment by nurturing curiosity, providing high-quality feedback, and using data to drive our decision making.

Our Culture Diversity & Equity
Equity is at the center of our work
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 are actively working to dismantle systems of oppression in our disciplinary practices and across our schools. 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.
At Explore, we actively work against implicit and unconscious bias, and remove the predictability of success or failure that currently correlates with any social or cultural factor. To do this, we customize the way we educate our students and make adjustments based on their individual needs. We work to ensure that everyone can access opportunities and resources to reach their full potential.
Benefit of Teaching:
We set salaries at Explore Schools based on the industry average and your employee experience. For instructional candidates, your salary is dependent on our instructional salary scale, which is based on how long you have taught as a lead teacher, your degree, and your certification status. We typically discuss salary at the offer stage.
When you join our staff, know that you are joining a partnership. Leaders, staff members, teachers, we all believe in an immersion approach to our work. The best part about our community is that we have fun! We are committed to excellence and engagement. We also know that when you love the work that you do, it makes it even easier. It is challenging work, but we have fun!
