I really enjoyed my time at Olathe North. All of the teachers were fantastic and they would help you with anything if you asked. At North, I was able to find a community and friends where I felt like I belonged. The overall acceptance of my peers to people who were different always made me proud to call myself an Eagle. If you are looking for a sport to be a part of, I highly recommend our Cross Country team. It's way more than just a group of runners; these people become your family! I was really able to break out of my shyness shell thanks to the wonderful people around me, and I will always hold North in my heart.

I love Olathe North High School. I’ve always felt safe and instantly found my place within the large school. It’s easy to get involved and students and staff are very welcoming! The whole school feels like a family, the staff and administration care about each student and want the best for all.
Olathe North offers a variety of opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds to explore their interests and build meaningful relationships. It is home to some of Olathe’s Twenty First Century Academies, including the Geoscience Program. As a transfer for this program, I have found an environment that has brought out my interests. I have been encouraged to be involved in my community through groups such as Eagle Servce Club, Student Council, French National Honor Society, and National Honor Society. My teachers have gone out of their way to ensure that I am thriving in school and in the “real world” too. I feel like I can leave Olathe North knowing that I am ready for the future, and that I made the right decision to transfer there.
