Olentangy High School Reviews

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!!
Review Olentangy High School
Good teaching staff, most of which are very friendly and provide an excellent environment for students to learn and grow. The school itself holds a large number of students. The only thing I would change about this school is its college readiness level. I believe high school should prepare students for majors/careers that they are interested in and not make them have to take extra/unnecessary classes/.
Olentangy is known to be a prestigious district. Being that I went to the original school, I had very high expectations for the school. To the most part it meet my criteria and went beyond. I liked the freedom and how every student is able to do what they desire. For example, I wanted to start a gardening club at my school and with a few paper works I was easily given permission to express what I love with other people. Something truly disappointing was the teachers. Either they had little to no care about you or they just treated you like toddles who were incapable of anything that required some thinking. While the AP teachers just choose to make us read and memorize the textbooks rather than digesting and actually gaining any sort of knowledge from it.
