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.
Review Olathe North High School
I LOVE THIS SCHOOL.I cant write how much i will miss this school when I graduate. some of the reason why i love this school is because it is so diverse. There are so many people who attend here with different backgrounds and cultures, and being from Africa myself, i really appreciate that. Olathe North is not just racial diverse, but we also have so many clubs and people who love all sorts of things. What i mean by this is if you really love Pokemon, there are probably 40 other people who share the same passion. If you love watching history films, there is a class for that. If you love proteins and modeling them using a 3D printer, there is a club for that. There are just so many things you can get involved in! I tell everybody i know that attends a different high school to come to North. I have so many other friends who attend schools like Olathe South, Olathe northwest, Shawnee mission south and I rarely hear anything great about their school, but all my friends at North and I testify how great our school is to everyone. I am just glad to be an Olathe North Eagle.
I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else except the original Olathe high school! I had a great experience in high school and look back on Olathe North in high regards. That school, and my teachers and peers, taught me more than just book smarts--they taught me about life and how to live it well.
