Olympia school district was fenominal at allowing teachers to design classes in a way that provided application to every day life. The classes were fun and interesting as well as inclusive and individualized. I admired the ability of the schools and districts to celebrate diversity, embrace individuality and develope our multicultural understanding. If I could change something with the Olympia school district I would improve the help and involvement in the bridge between high school and college.

I was with the Olympia School District from preschool to my senior year. The experience was great! Faculty, sports, and schools were all great in my opinion. I'd definitely recommend to those who are interested or have recently moved here.
As far as districts go, it was a pretty good one. The administration was very supportive of the various clubs and extracurriculars there and worked very hard to make the school a safe place for everyone to be. They strived to be accepting and welcoming to all, which is a quality of increasing scarcity. The only thing that bothered me was that one of the graduation requirements was slightly discriminatory towards military families and those who moved there after 7th grade. The requirement was that all students complete a course of Washington State History that was offered in 7th grade. If you moved into the district after that, you had a more difficult time trying to get that fulfilled. But as a senior, you could take the Civics class, which would count, so overall it's not too bad. Just annoying.
