Olympic Hills Elementary School

Pre-K/Elementary School

Olympic Hills Elementary School was identified for replacement and expansion to address safety and security, capacity, building condition, and maximizing flexibility for program and services. The school focuses on the Differentiated Instruction pedagogy, organizing students into smaller groups based on their learning level. The building design supports & enhances this approach by creating several smaller settings in each classroom and utilizes the Learning Commons for larger student groups, drawn from each of the classroom clusters. Olympic Hills Elementary will house 500 students when it opens in 2017. This project is utilizing the GC/CM delivery process.
