Odle Middle School is a public middle school in the Crossroads neighborhood of Bellevue, Washington, USA. The school is one of seven middle schools in the Bellevue School District, and was named posthumously after Frank Odle, who taught in the district for 55 years before retiring in 1968.[1][4] Odle is located near Stevenson Elementary, formerly a primary feeder elementary school for Odle. Odle is primarily known for its hosting of the ALS program, a gifted program for high-performing children. As of the 2019–20 school year, the school's principal is Aaron Miller and its assistant principals are Renee Del-Barut Fierro and Danielle Virata.[5]

In the 2001–02 school year, Odle Middle School was one of two schools in the state to be awarded a Blue Ribbon by the U.S. Department of Education,[6][7][8] the highest award an American school can receive.[9][10]
