The Olentangy Local School District is a very competitive district with various approaches to teaching students. It is a well rounded district that offers special programs for students, whether they need extra help or are advance for their grade. It has made me a better student by showing me what it is like to adapt to different teaching styles. The district holds each student to high standards and wants us all to make it to graduation and beyond, if that’s what we please. If possible I recommend trying to get your children or family members into the district, you will be pleased with the results!
Olentangy Local Schools is an overall good school. They care a lot about academics and sports. However, they don't have as much respect for music. Hundreds of the students in my high school didn't even know there is an orchestra. My freshman year, the orchestra was completely forgotten to be included in the yearbook! Olentangy has a lot of hits and misses.
