Olympic Interim School

Olympic Interim School, Opened for Highline High School, September 4, 2019

With passage of the 2016 bond, we renovated the Olympic site to serve as an interim school location. It is serving our students and staff in multiple ways, providing space during construction projects and for the launch of new schools:

  • Highline High School students attended school at the Olympic site over the course of two years during the construction of HHS, from fall 2019 through spring 2021. (Distance learning due to covid interrupted the full use, however staff continued to use the site for teaching and for pick-up and drop-off of classroom materials, books and projects.)
  • Olympic became the temporary home of the new Maritime High School in 2021-22.
  • Highline Virtual Academy and Highline Virtual Elementary staff joined Maritime High School at Olympic in 2022-23. Virtual schools' staff will be move to another site for the 2023-24 school year.
  • Olympic will continue to be the temporary home for Maritime High School in 2023-24, while school partners seek a new location.
  • Tyee High School will also use Olympic as an interim site in 2023-24 and 2024-25, while a new Tyee is under construction. When the new Tyee opens in fall 2025, Pacific Middle School will use the Olympic site as an interim location in 2025-26 and 2026-27, while a new Pacific is constructed.

Site Location: 615 South 200th Street, Des Moines
