———Middle School Transition

(updated 1/25/2024)


Students living in the Olympia High School attendance boundaries and are currently enrolled in one of our feeder middle schools will automatically “roll up” to Olympia High School.

If you are coming from any other school or live outside of the Olympia High School attendance boundary, please visit our enrollment page at https://www.osd.wednet.edu/our_district/schools/student_enrollment.

Our counseling team is unable to individually meet with incoming Freshmen families, however this site will be updated with important information to help with the middle school to high school transition process along with two in person events:

  • Welcome Night on April 10th from 6pm to 7:30pm
  • Freshman Orientation - Fall 2024
