Students at Olson are actively engaged in their learning both invidually and in cooperative groups. We use FOSS Science, Four Block Math, Balanced Literacy and MONDO curriculum as well as TCI social studies materials to support academic achievement. In addition, we utilize the "Above the Line" positive behavior program that focuses on explicit teaching of positive behaviors.

In addition to strong academics focus we have many fun events that involve our students and families.  These include Family Fun Nights, school dances, a spring carnival, etc. These are a few of the many events held at our schools.

Our school has an excellent after school program provided by YMCA.  Our building is often used after school hours by many other organizations, such as MSCR, to benefit everyone in our community
