For most of my academic career this school had to be the best school I have ever been to. Teacher are wonderful, the people are respectful, and overall I felt that the people from this school compared to my previous schools were people of higher quality. By quality I mean better as in smart, responsible, and inspiring; this includes all the administrators and teacher and students from the whole school. But something I would change as a principal is the food and the restrictions of the school. The food is horrible it taste like someone left it on the freezer for like a hole year than microwave it and the restrictions of not being able to go to bending machines during break and listening to music are ridiculous. If I could change anything is the ability to have more freedom and better food.

I love Olive Branch High School. The teachers are nice and very helpful. The principal is cool, but he also has control over the school. He doesn't let the students run all over him or disrespect the school. This school is very diverse. There are several types of people at the school with different views, and the diversity prepares the students for the real world and teaches us to be accepting of other people's views and opinions, even if we disagree with them.
Overall, Olive Branch High School is a good school in my opinion. The campus and classrooms are nice and the grounds are kept clean. The faculty and staff were involved and got to know the students by name which created a high level of engagement in the classrooms. I wished that some of the classes that were no longer offered (e.g. Accounting), could have been offered because I believe it could have helped me in my college studies. I also believe that offering more, or better, tutoring sessions or at least being able have good tutoring referrals for the ACT would have been extremely helpful with increasing scores.
