2012-2013 Restructuring[edit]

Due to economics hardships affecting the State of New York since the onsite of the Great Recession the school district began to see steep cuts from the state, and in order to maintain all of its operations, it's budgets were continually downsized since 2008. The Olean City School District was restructured for the 2012-2013 School Year due to budget constraints. Olean High School was traditionally grades 9-12 up until the finish of the 2011-2012 academic year. Following the end of the 2012 academic year, Olean High School now operates as grades 8-12.


Olean High School is well known in the Western NY region for its sports teams. It offers golf, basketball, football, volleyball, soccer, tennis, cross country, and track and field.
