Columbia Explorers is a neighborhood elementary school. This project relieved overcrowding at the school by adding six classrooms and support spaces. Site improvements include a new playground, exterior finishes and perimeter landscaping. The modular classrooms were open for the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
“Schools like Columbia Explorers are taking it day-by-day and class-by-class to provide a great learning environment for kids from Pre-K through 8th grade so they are prepared for high school. This modular provides students and teachers with extra space and facilities necessary to obtain a 21st century education.”
