Our Story

Omega Middle School grew from the inspired work of Rainbow Community School, formerly Rainbow Mountain Children’s School, that began in 1977.  A holistic and innovative middle school was in high demand and Omega came to fruition in 1994. Omega introduced two cutting-edge educational approaches to support the needs of older students: the Multiple Intelligences framework of Harvard Professor Howard Gardner and essential learning behaviors.

Omega has continued to be a leader in education and has been winning awards across the US.  More importantly, Omega has been winning the hearts of students and parents alike and inspiring life-long changemakers who are making a difference in our world.
