Class Coverage by the Administrative Team

Mr. Sayers was the first teacher to redeem his one period of class coverage this year! How many administrators did it take to cover his class - 4 out of the 5!

Making A Difference

Each year students who are admitted to MIT are asked to select the name of a teacher who has been especially influential in their development. Reece Akana selected Dr. Fabian! Thank you Dr. Fabian for having such an impact on Reece's life at Olympian High School.
