This was a brand new school when I began my freshman year - I will be in the first full graduating class to go through all 4 years here. It's pretty awesome with green technology used in building the school, different areas configured for learning, and the best students in the world!

It's a diverse school with many cultures to interact with. The Administration is very involved with the student body and encourages the student body to participate in community involvement. Also the administration and faculty encourage students to be involved in clubs, they want students to enjoy coming to school and making it seem like it's another place to call home. Teachers work with students in class, during lunch and on line to ensure the students understand the material. West is still a new school only being opened for three years, but as a student being able to build a foundation for the future of this school has been an awesome experience.
As a student at Olathe West I have Learned many things. One of the first things they teach you is that there are three different kind of people in this world, the ones who sit back and watch it happen, the ones who wonder how it happens, and the ones who make it happen. This is just the building block of the culture here at Olathe West. The environment of this school is amazing. I felt so welcomed when i first stepped into this building. Personally, this school has made me feel more like a leader. With the opportunities given here they make you feel as if you are running the school and the teachers are there in case things get out of hand. Olathe west is a very well rounded school where everyone can feel included. Overall i would say attending Olathe West had been one of my favorite things ever.
