I’m very thankful for the wonderful academics. It is an atmosphere where I felt like I could really push myself. The teaching staff and administration are wonderful. They are very patient and are hardworking individuals who want to see their students to develop and grow. They are extremely willing to go above and beyond to help any students who ask for assistance. The students there are also very welcoming. There are a lot of programs and sports teams for students to get involved in and helps expand peer relationships. One thing that I wish could change is the extremely competitive academic environment. Even though it has pushed me to become a better student, it can bring down self-confidence. I as well as other student can personally attest to that. Besides that detail, I’m extremely satisfied with my education thus far and I believe that Olentangy High School is pushing me down the right path to college!

I think academically Olentangy schools are great; However, as a minority it is very difficult being in their school district. The Caucasian children could say the most foul racist things and when we would bring it to the administration's attention absolutely nothing would happen and we would most likely be the ones that got in trouble. Also, it's very concerning how many of the students do drugs from juuling to heroin/cocaine. I understand that the school can't really do anything about that seeing as they are not that child's parent; However, students were definitely doing drugs in the bathrooms.
Good teachers, though some are better than others. Dean of students was lacking. Some problems with vaping, and other light drugs and alcohol. Not too many problems with hard drugs. Children are mostly nice, slightly entitled. Administration is reluctant to challenge the norm, even if it would better overall student life. Personal experience has led to personal views on the administration as reluctant to take hard stances and support victims of abuse, assault, stalking. Some programs are more supported than others, but the arts do fairly well here.
