Olentangy Liberty High School definitely exceeds academically. The students are incredibly intelligent, but they lack morality and empathy. Bullying is a big problem at this school especially because these kids are extremely spoiled living in a wealthy city like Powell. Although the students are a problem, the majority of the teachers are well qualified and work hard to help the students succeed. This school also works very hard to prepare students for college. Overall, I strongly recommend this school because of the academic advantage these students receive.

Olentangy Liberty High School is academically challenging and allows for a rigorous schedule for students to expand their knowledge and experiences. Most of the teachers prepare the students for college as I have experienced with my oldest child. Some of the teachers go beyond, and integrate the individual needs of the students and encourages them to excel beyond even what they think are their capabilities.
I would encourage OLHS to incorporate the parents more so their is a better connection to the school and more communication to enhance the transition for each grade level to college.
Overall, I feel OLHS has done an outstanding job preparing the students to succeed in whatever direction they choose to ensue.
The environment at Olentangy Liberty is one of high competition and pressure with an interesting student life. However diversity is somewhat lacking and the "liberty" attitude of not caring much about others in general is selfish and very prevalent among the student body, no matter what the grade level. The academics are stellar and students can take whatever classes they desire, and the teachers are very good and want students to excel and thrive not only in class, but outside as well. However there is a large amount of academic pressure and the stress to perform well in class and in tests taints the students. Many of them have high expectations when it comes to performance and are scared of failing both themselves and their parents. Other than that, many aspects of the school are your typical high school experience. The academics and activities such as sports and clubs are really what make Olentangy Liberty one of the top rated public schools in the state.
