  • Olsen Middle School is located in Dania Beach, Florida. The City of Dania Beach borders Ft. Lauderdale to the north and Hollywood to the south. We are approximately one mile from the Atlantic Ocean.

    The School Board of Broward County purchased land next to the original school to build a new state-of-the-art facility. In 1994 students and staff moved into the facility. The plan called for the original Olsen Middle School campus to be torn down and athletic fields built in its place. Student enrollment was close to 2000 students. Too many students to house on the new campus. The Olsen Community decided to keep the original building as a sixth-grade center. This helped us alleviate overcrowding concerns. It also gave us the rare opportunity to allow our sixth-grade students another year to "grow" before moving over to the main campus. Our more than 500 students and 100 faculty, staff, and administration members are proud to call Olsen "Home."
