Explorer West welcomes Barbara Frailey as our Head of School as of July 2019.
Barbara is a dynamic, engaging leader with strong communication skills, and, most importantly, she has a passion for working with middle school students. The Board is confident and enthusiastic about Barbara’s ability both to honor our past and to move Explorer West decisively forward as a leading middle school in Seattle.
Barbara has asked us to share her thoughts on joining Explorer West: “Explorer West is such a unique and inspiring school, and I am very honored and delighted that your community has chosen me to lead it. Thank you to each and every person involved in the search for the warm welcome, the tough questions, and the authentic sharing of Explorer West’s values and culture. I look forward to getting to know all of you better over the coming months, and I simply can’t wait to join you this summer as your next Head of School!”
