Schooling around Olathe began in the winter of 1883. Charles Young taught the first school class in the residence of Shep Church. In the spring of 1894, a school house was erected approximately 4 miles west of the section house on the eastern edge of Ash Mesa.  Miss Myrtle Bell was one of the first teachers in this new building.  The first year, the class consisted of 8 pupils.

The first schoolhouse, along with the first church to grace the Olathe community, built later that same year, were built on high ground (above the river valley), because the Indians told settlers of regular flooding. However, this proved to be far from the truth.

Olathe's second schoolhouse was built in 1888. Near the west end of present day Main Street.  By 1891, a larger school house was required and a two-story school was built. It held two rooms downstairs for classrooms while the upstairs floor was used as a community hall. Dancing, literary meetings, spelling bees, community plays, and even occasional church meetings and election polling occurred here. 

By 1900, school enrollment had increased enough that the large community hall on the second story was rebuilt to add 2 more classrooms. A large brick school house was built in 1912, and a brick high school building was erected 10 years later to meet the demands for more and better educational facilities for the community.

Today, Olathe has elementary, middle grade, and a newly rebuilt high school to offer Olathe students modern classroom facilities. A technical/vocational school is shared by all residents of the Olathe, Delta, and Montrose area, located halfway between Olathe and Delta.
