Olympic Hills’ status as a Top Puget Sound-area elementary school made it into the Puget Sound Business Journal.
“This list aims to identify schools that have found success with students from a variety of backgrounds. It’s easy to see how schools like Medina Elementary and Blackwell Elementary, both with fewer than 2 percent of students receiving free and reduced lunch, rank high on lists of top schools. These are students whose parents are actively involved in their education, who read to them every night, who help them with their homework.
It’s rare to see these schools mixed in with schools like Olympic Hills Elementary and Van Asselt Elementary, both in Seattle, where three-quarters or more of the students qualify for free or reduced lunch.”
