Breakfast at Olathe West High School

Time: 7:30 am –9:00 am
Place: Olathe West High School

Olathe West High School transforms learning into an environment that intrigues the high school mind, stimulates creativity and collaboration amongst students, facilitators, and community. In this unique setting, teachers will become learning coaches, serving students and facilitating learning through a variety of spaces and tools. Teachers won't own their rooms and instead will be a part of a neighborhood, breaking down the scale of the school and allowing for more personalized learning and a wide variety of delivery methods. Opening in August of 2017, the new facility will allow students to explore and develop skills through inquiry and curiosity in a shell that blends context and outcomes. Learning will occur through real-world simulations and problem-solving applications tackling current and future global problems and will collaborate with businesses, the community, and globally with other students abroad.
Join us on Wednesday morning, April 26 at 7:30 am for a tour of the new Olathe West High School. We'll hear from the building's administrators who were involved from the start on how this project was designed to enhance curriculum, challenge the idea of what high school looks and feels like and create a space for modern learners. After a Q&A session, the building will be available for tours.
