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.

The staff at Olympia high school is the kindest and most caring I have seen of any school I know. I even see the janitors smiling and saying hello. The motto here is pride, courage and tradition and they follow it whole heartedly. There is never a day where you won’t be greeted with a smile that will make anyone’s day better. They try to include every single student and make everyone feel like they belong. The students are some of the most caring people I will likely ever meet. The only complaint I would have would be that some kids are just toxic people. However, this is not the staffs fault, but instead the parents lack of parenting skills.
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.
