California Trail Junior High School is an overall great school. The California Trail Junior High School Science Olympiad Team was founded by Coach Kerling around the dawn of the new millennium, eventually she retired and coach Mallory Hatcher took the reins of the program. She has now become the winningest Coach in CT history. California Trail is the Division B champion 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.
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.
