Review Olentangy High School
Overall, Olentangy receives more praise than it deserves. While so far I have been happy with my education, I cannot say the same for the people and teachers. Many, if not all, students at Olentangy are on drugs. Student athletes who drink and smoke on the weekends NEVER get caught, and if they have, they have not been punished. Most of the students at this school are very rude and hang in cliques. The teachers at Olentangy are pretty bad. I have yet to encounter a teacher who is able to explain anything well. Teachers also pick favorites... Miss. Edwards being one of the worst offenders of this. 70% of the teachers at Olentangy do not care about their students and do not provide a comfortable enviornment to learn in. One of the least welcoming schools I have ever been apart of from factulty to students, this place was pretty bad. Received an OKAY education. Huge problem with athletes receiving things others do not in the school setting.
In general, I have had a positive experience at Olentangy. Being a large school, there is no excuse to not finding a club, sport, or class that fits a student's interests. On the other hand, the largeness at Olentangy creates issues such as overcrowding in the halls and lunch room, and severe competetiveness in academics and varsity athletics. The school has zero-tolerance policies in place; however, the policies are enforced extremely loosely. The teachers are -- for the most part -- sincere in wanting to help students truly learn and succeed. This has led to students being completely prepared for college. The school pushes very hard to be top-ranked and I feel that sometimes the rank of the school comes at the expense of the student.
The best part of going to Olentangy is the commrodery that is felt during football games. Go Braves!!
