Olathe Unified School District Reviews

I was enrolled in the Olathe Unified School district from the time I was in Kindergarten in 2002 until I graduated high school in 2015. My time spent with the school district supplied me with ample experience and educational benefits. From having interactive teachers to participating in school sports, I was able to engage in various aspects. I thoroughly enjoyed my involvement with the school district. Thinking back, I do wish I would have been more heavily involved in different clubs and school activities. For future years, I desire to see greater adversitment and encouragement to stay engaged in non-academic activities in school as they prove fruitful in future jobs and education.

I was involved in the olathe public schools for 5 years and my overall experience has been decent. The school is very good at involving the community in athletics, but not other programs. I felt as though the districts highlights the athletic programs more than actually getting good grades. Being that the high schools are 6A, most incoming students are attracted to what the school has to bring athletically. The school did a good job promoting college readiness, however most students left confused. I rarely used my counselor because she often seemed like she did not care about minorities.
The Olathe School District has been a big part of my life since I was 5. The District has provided me many amazing opportunities in life! From giving me my first friends to allowing me to excel in tennis towards the end of my high school career! The classes are good and allow you to be involved to your liking. I experienced a few poor teachers along the way but they were only a lesson for me. To learn how to deal with people in life. I'm grateful for my time in Olathe and how it shine on to where I'm headed next!
