Explore Schools' 2012 Annual Report

While our schools operate on their per pupil allocation and only fundraise for specific extra-curriculars, Explore Schools relies on the generosity of individual donors and foundations as we expand.  Our goal is to open six schools that will serve more than 3,000 students in Brooklyn, New York.  You can learn more about our growth plans and how we leverage the support of donors by reading our 2012 Annual Report.
