Welcome to the 2019-20 school year at Olson Middle School, also known as Olson U. We refer to ourselves as Olson U (University) because we focus our efforts on preparing students to become successful high school students and future college graduates. At Olson U, we are dedicated to providing a rich and rigorous education for our students. We accomplish this by having high expectations for all students to perform to their potential in a safe learning environment. This year we are in our authorization year of implementing the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. In November, we will become an official International Baccalaureate school!

We have a great school, and we believe that together we can improve the quality of our school community. We are in the second year of a three-year Phillips Foundation grant to facilitate personalized learning for all of our students, known as the My Story My Brilliance project. In addition, we will have opportunities for you to volunteer and support school events. Please know that our Associate Educator for Community Relations will reach out to you to strengthen our family partnership. Our partnership is vital to the academic success of our student(s).

Our teachers and staff members are excited about leading students to be academically, socially and emotionally successful. We are committed to building a learning community with students and families at the center. We know this commitment will lead to outstanding results for our students.

I look forward to working together in partnership with you to maximize the brilliance in all of our students.

Dr. Steve Emerson, Principal
