Walk in our blue doors and experience the difference of a small, independent middle school- the only independent
6th-8th-grade school in West Seattle! Explorer West is a respectful, supportive, and caring academic community helping students thrive. At our open house events, families meet our students, parents, and faculty to learn about our curriculum and community. It is the perfect event to explore your student’s middle school options and learn what is possible when they are at a school where they are connected with kind and supportive adults and peers.
For more than 20 years, Explorer West has been redefining the middle school experience by combining rigorous academics and values.
We offer a rigorous academic program to prepare students for high school. All students take math, English, science, social studies, Latin, music, drama, art, and PE/ health for three years. Students learn to manage their time, challenge themselves, and build their creative and critical thinking skills. Individual needs are met through strong relationships with advisers and faculty who work together ensuring that students are supported and challenged in the areas where they need the most attention.
Every day we live our core values built on a foundation of respect for every member of our community. Every student develops in the areas of personal and community responsibility, integrity, creativity and inquiry, and confidence. Feeling safe and supported at school by adults and peers who care about one another makes this amazing growth possible.
Join us for one of our events to discover how great middle school can be.
