Olney Friends School to Build New Science Center

The Future Stillwater Science Center at Olney Friends School Stillwater Monthly Meeting has decided to transfer a deed for the 15-year-old, 10,000-square-foot, former Barnesville Independent Elementary School to Olney Friends School. The site is just below the Meetinghouse and west of the

cemetery. Olney is currently making plans to remodel the building into the Stillwater Science Center and to move the science and math classes out of crowded quarters in the basement of the Main. Classes are expected to begin there in August 2014. Olney is also exploring the idea of expanding science into the area of engineering and design, while continuing to maintain the focus on the land, the environment and ecology.
