On behalf of Olympia Middle School staff I would like to welcome all of the parents and students. The Olympia School District represents eight communities in five different counties and encompasses 377 square miles. Olympia Middle School is located at the OHMS campus in rural Stanford. OMS serves approximately 390 students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade.

Students at OMS are provided the widest range of learning experiences that we can possibly offer and we continuously strive to improve student learning. Our desire is for students to demonstrate an ownership of their learning. Students problem solve, question, investigate and make decisions using various learning strategies to deepen their understanding. The Olympia Middle School curriculum offers the core subjects of English, Math, Science, and Social Studies, as well as a diverse offering of Encore courses. The Encore courses that the students can take advantage of by grade level are as follows:

6th Grade: Art, PE, STEM 1, Band and/or Chorus

7th Grade: Art, Technology, PE, STEM 2, Band and/or Chorus

8th Grade: Art, Technology, PE, Cultures, Agriculture, Band and/or Chorus

Olympia Middle School is on a 4 block schedule each day. The classes range from 78-82 minutes. The Encore classes offer enrichment opportunities for the students to deepen their learning. Students also spend time each morning with grade-level peers in their Homeroom class, and again after lunch in their Advisory. These are opportunities for students to build trust with each other while learning social, emotional and interpersonal skills as well as engage in college and career readiness activities. 

The OMS staff is committed to providing a high quality education to all of our students. If you have any questions please contact me by calling Olympia Middle School at (309)379-5941 extension 8010 or emailing me at

Yours in Education,

Mike Jones
