My experience at Olathe North seemed about the same as most High Schools. You have pros, and you have cons. For example, I really enjoyed the teachers I had at North. I didn't have a problem with any of them. I also really enjoyed our gyms. They're pretty big sized and beautiful shiny floors. A couple things I didn't like: I did not enjoy our lunches here. Rarely did we have a lunch that was actually fresh and tasty. Lunch ladies were sweet, but food, not so much. Another negative is the bathrooms. One word: Unsanitary. Writing everywhere on the stalls and walls, always smelled bad in there with no air freshener or wall spray, and one time there was even pee on the floor! Olathe North deserves three stars, and I wish I could give more because the school is not the worst, but they can definitely improve.

Olathe North High School has a very unique atmosphere compared to other local schools. There is overall a great sense of community and teamwork. There are many athletic and academic opportunities, with quality cross country and basketball teams. The school also hosts 5 programs that give students chances to explore a career path using high-tech equipment and field experiences. There are good teachers at this school too, at least once you reach junior and senior year. A student's high school experience here is one of the best, as there are so many opportunities to become involved and help the community. The administration is also extremely caring and is invested in the students deeply.
I am in the Sports Medicine and Exercise Science Program at Olathe North High Schools and absolute love it! It is an amazing high school to be able to attend and all of the students are very welcoming, along with the teachers. A change at Olathe North could be a better way to tell students to get involved with clubs or extra circulars.
