The Exploration approach supports all learners to become problem solvers, collaborators, and critical thinkers while instilling qualities like persistence, and resilience.
Board Welcome












We are a new kind of elementary school, developed with Rochester and our scientifically advanced, interconnected world in mind!  As the area's first science and technology-focused elementary school, Exploration students will be prepared for success in school, college, and life in the 21st century.


Your child will explore the vast community resources Rochester offers and we are fortunate to call The Rochester Museum and Science Center our partner. Join us as we establish a vibrant and safe school where young learners can grow into tomorrow's innovators, communicators, problem-solvers, and collaborators. Welcome!

Our "Hands-on Minds-on" Philosophy

To foster excitement, a sense of inquiry and confidence, and promote academic achievement and life-long learning, Exploration balances instruction in core content areas with opportunities for students to explore, research, direct, 

experiment, and interact with knowledge. 

Be Part of Our Story!

We are a brand new school with a brand new approach to learning that is focused on skills for the 21st century. We will support students and families with innovative resources and we hope you'll join us on this journey! Apply today. 

Exploration is for Families

Exploration prioritizes positive family engagement; the school building offers family spaces, parents are invited to inform the school experiences of their child, and the faculty will use innovative technologies that support positive, two-way family communication.
