Odyssey Early College and Career Options Reviews
Odyssey is a fairly good school. Many of the teachers care a great bit about students and are willing to help beyond what is expected. The courses are alright, though as students begin moving off-campus, it can be extremely difficult for them to adjust to the change. This is due to the under-preparedness of the counselors to help students. They are often too busy to really help much, and often know just as little about which classes need to be taken for each major as the students. I also feel as though they push the students to go off-campus earlier than they are prepared to. They could either improve the classes they offer to prepare students for off-campus, or, as they tried last year, just make the students take more of them. Its a good school, but I feel as though Odyssey still has a long way to come in order to be a place I would recommend to others.
I like that you are able to move ahead in school based on your intelligence. You have the option to get a associates degree when you are 18. You can take college classes when you are ready to move up to them. Classes go fast but are mainly easy. The teachers make an effort to make class fun but productive. Something Odyssey Early College and Career Options could improve on is focusing on their students. The councilors basically run the school. They mainly focus on the public image of the school, not the students themselves. The councilors could also do better at communication with the students.
Underwhelming and disappointing. If you are looking at this school because of its early college aspect, consider this: Odyssey has no sports, music programs, and only two extracurriculars (Spanish and art - Spanish is required). The campus holds 8 schools, most of which are for students who don't do well in school. The administration don't care if you have an issue; they will brush you off. They are very arrogant and unwilling to change. Colorado Springs Early Colleges is much better, from what I've heard from other students.
