Our school day starts at 7:35 am and ends at 3:35 pm. During a typical day, students can expect to have literacy blocks that embed writing and social studies, mathematics blocks that embed spiral review and math “centers” work with manipulatives, test prep to prepare for the state exams, science, art, music, and gym. Click here to see this year’s schedule at a glance for our 3rd through 5th graders.

Weekly, we have Community Circle. During this time, we celebrate our community and provide necessary announcements.

In addition to our academic courses, Explore Lower teachers offer after-school and enrichment courses each semester. These enrichment offerings include Art, Music, and Physical Education.

Lastly, we participate in an annual Spelling Bee and have sent participants to the Brooklyn borough-wide Spelling Bee.

For our parents, we offer a variety of workshops. Workshop themes vary depending on the needs of our parents. We have hosted workshops on topics such as supporting students with special needs and supporting students with homework.
