Welcome to Explorer West Middle School; we are excited to meet your family!

We are a small, independent middle school in West Seattle where young people thrive. Our faculty and staff focus on the individual student to meet them where they are, build on their strengths, and support areas of growth. Explorer West Middle School combines academic rigor with a particular emphasis on each student.

Choosing the best school for your child is a complex decision. Our application process is designed to give your family an in-depth look into our community while providing our Admissions Committee with relevant information about your child.

Opportunities to learn more about Explorer West are found on our Admission Events Page.

We use Ravenna for our online application system. Through Ravenna, you can create a profile for your child, register for a Remote Information Session, and learn more about the admission process. Download our EWMS 2020 admission info sheet.
