I really enjoyed my time as an Olympia Spartan. Class sizes are reasonable, the faculty is great (a few faculty members I truly consider to be friends!), and I met some really great people at Olympia. Opportunities for students are constantly expanding there as well. In particular, the newly implemented college-and-career readiness activities helped me immensely as a high school student applying for prestigious universities. There isn't much diversity at Olympia; however, that is simply due to the demographics of the surrounding area. Other than that, Olympia is great! Go Spartans!

Olympia High School is about as good as it can be given its circumstances- with that being said, it’s not great. The teachers rarely teach, giving us fairly low SAT and ACT scores, the school is 98% and you get bullied by not only students, but teachers if you are not a strong republican. The school counselors don’t know what they are doing and often mess up schedules. When you go to them for college help, you might as well go to google. Don’t get me started on the food or facilities, the bathrooms haven’t been redone since the early 70’s and sometimes I just don’t eat lunch because I can’t force myself to eat anything being served. As for clubs and activities, our chorus and drama is actually pretty good but our sports are awful (with the exception of our wrestling team), the football team hasn’t won one game in literal years. So yeah. I’m ready to leave.
High school is what you make of it, and the overall experience is dependant on one's openness and class/school attitude. By the end of my high school career, I felt a sense of accomplishment and was happy with it. I, however, was not impressed with the administration. These people are the ones who are supposed to encourage students, but when the activities director is on their phone during the school plays/musicals, and the principal is reluctant to allow any student input or organized change, there is a problem.
