Math, Engineering, Technology & Science at Olympic High School Reviews

Academically Olympic is not all that bad as long as you are able to keep up with your work. The students here like to blame the teachers that they have too much work when in reality it is not that much and they are just lazy. Olympic is not the perfect school however. There are bugs in the ceiling, mold in almost every room, and the a/c and heat tends to do its own things. There is a new building at Olympic that is pristine though. It is full of engineering equipment and where i had about half of my classes. I enjoyed being in that part of the school. Things i would like to see change at Olympic is the school spirit and involvement because it is practically close to nothing. I would also like the counselors to be more involved with the seniors since we practically have had no help with finding scholarships and how to complete the application process.

I enjoy my school because of the diversity on campus. The teachers are warm and welcoming. I feel that the special course curriculum that I am taking will allow me an advantage when I apply to the colleges that I have selected to pursue my electrical engineering degree! One change that I would like to see is for the students to be more mindful about keeping the school grounds & environment cleaner! I would also like for the classroom sizes to be downsized.
A high school experience is determined by what you make of it. However, at Olympic High School there are very few opportunities to make your education more than average. Upon arrival at the school, you are met by a dingy building that has not been renovated since being built in the 1960s. This building is also infested with bugs, mice, mold, and likely many more disgusting unwanted visitors. Very few of the teachers actually care about the well being of their students and a few don't even bother to show up most days. Overall the Olympic Community of Schools is failing in my opinion.
