  • My experience at Explorations was incredibly beneficial. The one year I spent at Gilbert was completely miserable. Explorations not only helped me succeed academically, but socially. It also gave me valuable work experience that I would not have received otherwise.
    As for the former student who gave the school a 2, if it was such a terrible school, then why did you stay there for SIX years!? There are plenty of people dying to be in your position (take for example the 15 year old girl whose mom left a comment before you). The teachers are far from close minded.
    Don't let one bitter student stop you from succeeding.

  • This school is fantastic! I have worked for many years in the local public schools, and the difference is significant. My children are enrolled here, and I work here. As a parent, I am thoroughly impressed with the education and character development my children are receiving. As a teacher, I witness individualized attention being given to all learners. In the Multisensory Academy of Practioners, student are taught in class sizes of 5 students! The technology is impressive and the faculty incredible. It is great to see innovative teaching!

  • FCDS is truly amazing. The faculty is incredible and passionate about teaching. They connect with my children through small class sizes and individualized instruction. FCD is the place to be!

  • This school is amazing! Both of my sons attend, and I have been thrilled with their experience. I can't imagine sending them to any other school. They get individualized attention in small classes. They are learning so much, and enjoying every minute!

  • FCDS is an amazing school! If your student is extremely bright, or if your student struggles with a learning difficulty, this is the school for him or her! I have been blown away by the educational experience my children have had there! It is simply the best school in the Piedmont, by far!

  • Cruel children. Close-minded teachers. I hated that school- it was awful. Because of the kids there, i suffered severe depression for six years. If you have a choice, stay far away from the school, the district, the town, or better yet, the area.
