The center portion of Olympic High School will be demolished. In its place, a two-story core with career and technical education and other permanent classrooms that will get students out of portables. The core will also include a library, auditorium, commons area and a secure entryway. The old library is being converted to new science labs and a special education classroom.  

Improvements at Olympic High School are possible thanks to our community's support of a capital projects measure in 2016. Work will be complete in fall 2018. 

Why It's Needed

Parents and community members have emphasized the need to get rid of portable classrooms. The proposed plan will add permanent classrooms. Olympic High School was built in 1979. Since then, the needs of employers have changed a lot. Technical education classrooms are dated and no longer support what students need to learn.
