Olson School is located on the northern border in the city of Marina. Surrounded by pastures and an established neighborhood, Olson is less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean. A part of Monterey Peninsula Unified School District's Marina Learning Community, we join the Seaside and Monterey Learning Communities in providing a standards based education program.

Every day at Olson School, wonderful partnerships of students, staff, community volunteers and parents provide an outstanding, well-rounded, education for all students. Academic and behavior expectations are high, yet achievable. The school vision is to be a place where adults assist students to be committed to learning, exploring and developing in responsible citizens who celebrate and accept all culture.

Olson Orcas are Organized, Respectful, Caring, Always Responsible and Safe.

Attendance Image.jpg

Regular attendance is vital to your child's success. Please make every effort to send your child to school every day and on time. 

Olson has a dedicated staff who teach "bell to bell", making every minute count. When you pull your child out of class early, it disrupts his/her learning and interrupts the instruction in the classroom. 

Our goal is for every Olson Orca to graduate from high school and be career or college ready . Attendance counts!
