Thriving Alumni: The Success Stories of Explorer West Middle School

At Explorer West Middle School, we take pride in the accomplishments of our alumni. After spending three transformative years with us, our graduates go on to excel in high schools and higher education institutions, both locally and around the globe. They've embarked on successful careers across a wide array of fields, carrying with them the values and skills they acquired at Explorer West.

Our Alumni's Journey: From Explorer West to the World

Our alumni's journey doesn't end after they leave Explorer West. They continue to thrive, applying the strong academic foundation and character growth they experienced here to their high school studies and beyond.

Staying Connected: Our Alumni's Continued Involvement

The connection between our school and our alumni remains strong even after graduation. Many of our alumni, as well as their family members, continue to be a part of the Explorer West community. They serve as volunteer Board Trustee or committee members, coaches, and mentors, and they support the school financially through fundraising activities such as the Annual Fund and Auction.

Explorer West’s dedicated, fabulous, experienced staff nurtures and develops our young children into self-reliant young adults.Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
