Class Guru

Explorer School uses Class Guru, a proprietary e-Learning system which enables students to interact with their instructors and with each other both during and after class time.

Students can also submit assignments, course work, projects and home work on Class Guru. In addition, teachers can upload all course materials which will be made available to students whenever they need it. Class Guru is also a social network that enables its entire community of learners to build lasting friendships just like they would in a normal school campus. Learner safety and protection is of the highest importance to us. All instructors are screened and we conduct background checks on every applicant to prioritize the well-being of our community both for our learners and teachers.

Students have access to subject specific chat rooms moderated by tutors to give students and parents an opportunity to fully engage with different topics. 

Student Wellbeing

Life isn’t just about grades, it’s about being a whole person. With that in mind, our students have access to counselling sessions provided by professional psychiatrists and psychologists should they need them. In addition, students have access to career counselors and mentorship sessions to help them through the process of making the tough decisions regarding what to study in university, what professions or careers to pursue or simply just understanding how the world works.
