Olympic High Modernization

OHS entrance

The passage of the bond on the Feb. 9, 2016 ballot means the end of portables at Olympic High School. It also means upgrades. Construction is estimated to end in 2018. Work will include:
  • New classrooms created on a new floor above the current career and technical education (CTE) classrooms
  • Modernizing CTE classrooms to help students learn 21st century skills
  • Expand and improve the commons 
  • Install an all-weather athletic field

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 1970s. Since then, the needs of employers have changed a lot. Technical education classrooms are dated and no longer support what students need to learn.

When other schools in the district use Silverdale Stadium, Olympic High students have limited access to athletic fields. A new field will give more students access to fields. 

OHS construction starts soon
