This school is in dire need of funding! the teachers are not getting paid enough thus not allowing for quality work, from the teachers. What i would try to change is to look farther and wider to find a more willing teacher to teach. Then work as hard as i could to gain more funds to support Olathe High school.

Going to high school at Olathe High School was one of the best experiences. It was on the smaller side of schools, but it was nice. You had the opportunity to have more one on one time with the teachers, especially with the classes you struggled with. There were also lots of clubs or other programs you could become involved with. The smallness of the school also meant you were very close with you class mates and I think that connection is important in high school.
Olathe Highschool is a community school where everyone knows everyone and you can rely on anyone for help.
