Project Feature: Olympic View K-8

Envisioned as a multicultural hub and neighborhood asset, the Olympic View K-8 project was informed by a series of community meetings to address potential inequities that may affect a sense of belonging, health, wellbeing and learning. Site goals included creating an outdoor community hub that was park-like in nature and accessible to all ages and generations of families, and continuing the school’s strong tradition of gardening and outdoor learning. The school opened last fall in 2023.
