California Trail Middle School (formerly California Trail Junior High School) is an overall great school. The California Trail Middle School Science Olympiad Team was founded by Coach Kerling around the dawn of the new millennium, eventually she retired and coach Mallory Beem took the reins of the program. She has now become the winningest Coach in CT history. However, the 2018-19 season will be her last year coaching Science Olympiad. California Trail is the Division B champion (2004-2011, 2016-2017) of the state of Kansas. They have achieved ten 1st's and three 2nd places in state. So far, their highest Nationals score is 28th, but they are still looking forward to an even better 2017 year! California Trail has recently begun hosting an annual SciOly invitational in 2014, it typically takes place in the month of November and typically consists of 20-25 competing teams from Eastern Kansas and Western Missouri. Currently however competitions now switch between each Olathe school in a circle.

Additional info: School colors are black and gold, School mascot is the bulldog. CT is in the Olathe School District, and like other Olathe schools they just changed grade ranges as of the 2010- 2011 school year: from 7th-9th grade to 6th-8th grade. As such they no longer utilize the 5 9th grade slots allotted to them. Eddie is dead. Anjani is a fangirl. Manav is a meme. Savi is a damaged horse. Samuel is a du-ck/b. But what is GAURI? (She’s an atom)

Gauri was the true light, no matter what VirginiaCTKid says. Also, we must all worship Gauri as the true hard carrier (even though Manav tried his best).

(I don't have an Instagram, but I thought it was funny. It is only becoming more apparent that humans are being subjugated to the torture of duck-kind.)
