STEELE CREEK NEWS
to Impact Change at Olympic Community of Schools
2013) At the Steele Creek Residents Association annual meeting this
week, Charles Wilkerson, President of the Arrowood Business
Association, announced the formation of the Olympic Foundation.
Its mission will be to make a direct impact towards change at
the Olympic Community of Schools.
Commonly referred to
by its original name, Olympic High School, the Olympic Community
of Schools was established in 2006 when the traditional high
school was split into five theme-based schools.
Olympic Community of Schools:
Biotechnology, Health, and
Public Administration (Biotech)
International Business and
Communication Studies (Business)
International Studies and
Global Economics (Global)
Technology, and Science
Olympic High School
opened in 1966 and is one of the oldest high schools in the
Charlotte-Mecklenburg system. While the system has opened many new
high schools over the years, Olympic has deteriorated over time and
requires attention. Its athletic facilities in particular are among
the worst in Mecklenburg County.
Stay tuned for more
information about the upcoming fundraising drive.
