General Information

The Olympia School District offers Middle and High School summer courses.  Summer School helps students to retrieve credit, reinforce important skills, fill in gaps in learning, and become better prepared for the upcoming school year. Recommendations for students to attend Summer School are based on a handful of factors: credit deficiency, teacher referrals, and classroom performance. With the exception of Pre-Algebra, High School courses are credit retrieval only for courses previously failed. 

Summer School Administrator: Jane Allaire; eallaire@osd.wednet.edu, or call 360-596-8029.
Summer School Secretary: Janet Anderson; 360-596-8023.

Middle School Summer School Program - Skill-Building and Support

The middle school program is for incoming 6th through 8th grade students. This program is a combined Math/Reading/ Language Arts Support class. Our goal is to offer support to students who need to increase understanding in the classroom as well as prepare for state assessments.

High School Summer School Program - APEX Credit Retrieval, Pre-Algebra Support, and "Fit for Life", and Work Based Learning

All classes are APEX credit retrieval and students may only register for one class at a time and must complete before registering for another class. Students will meet on campus four times per week and are expected to complete a pre-determined number of hours logged into the net-based website outside of the classroom.

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the overwhelming need for more math support, we have opened the Algebra Prep class to any incoming 9th grader who wants to build their math skills this summer.

Reminder: Algebra Prep does not take the place of Math Support courses during freshman year and is not credit retrieval only.  This class will provide a good foundation for the upcoming school year and is entered as an elective credit on the transcript.
