Welcome to Olson Middle!
Olson Middle School provides a safe, supportive learning community where ALL students are challenged to reach their highest levels of achievement and grow as individuals.
Positive School Culture
At Olson, we believe in the community values of respect, responsibility, integrity, citizenship, honesty, and teamwork, and our student-centered programs reflect those values.
Olson provides opportunities for a wide range of learners including a robust special education department, a well-respected gifted education track called Dimensions Academy, and individualized attention for all of our students.
Computer Science Immersion
Computer science immersion aims to empower students with the skills and knowledge important for success in the 21st century: creativity, collaboration, communication, persistence and confidence in dealing with complex, open-ended problems. Students in this unique program are empowered to be creators of technology, learning to design and build their own websites, games, and apps! Learn more about computer science immersion.
Olson is dedicated to preparing our students for tomorrow. We are a 1:1 school with all students being assigned a personal Chromebook device. Students use devices to create, collaborate, and explore with engaging curriculum that incorporates video/audio creation, coding, virtual reality, and makerspace technologies. We help students build independence and critical thinking with our flexible learning initiative that encourages student voice and choice and includes transformed flexible spaces.
We are proud to offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities to engage students’ passions. We have athletic activities including volleyball, soccer, track, cross-country and a ski/snowboard club, academic activities including coding club, a musical, math team, book of the month club, academic decathlon, and makerspace club, and socially conscious groups such as the GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance). We also offer unique immersive experiences such as a Washington, D.C. visit and overnight camping trips.
