Groundbreaking Celebrations

Watch: Olympic View K-8 Groundbreaking Celebration Video

  • New Groundbreaking in Federal Way Public Schools!

    Celebrate the start of construction on the new Olympic View K-8 with us!

    Olympic View Elementary is the seventh school to be rebuilt thanks to voter approval of the phase 2 school construction bond in November 2017, and we’re so grateful for the new opportunities these buildings will bring to our scholars. The planning process began in 2020. Now that the design phase has been completed, we are eager to begin construction on a new school which will serve expanded grade levels as a K-8 school. Students will soon enjoy improved learning environments that foster collaboration, innovation, and achievement as a result of the following building features:

    • Connection to Nature
      Biophilic design will be incorporated with natural finishes, light from above, an outdoor learning area, and prominent views of nature.

    • Improved Security
      The new school will integrate enhanced security features, including security cameras and a secure welcoming entry that connects to the main office.

    • Learning Resource Pavilion
      Common areas will encourage access and well-being with a Discovery Lab, Whole Child Tree, kitchenette, spaces for student support partnerships and more.

    Make sure to watch this exciting video celebration, which will feature remarks from Dr. Pfeiffer and other key members of the FWPS and Olympic View community, as well as a peek at the virtual 3D building concept.
