I have been at Olney Independent School District since Kindergarten. I have had bad experiences and good ones at times. The teachers are very caring and loving. They will go out of their way to make sure the students are learning and are in a safe place. The teachers and staff will do everything in their power to make sure we feel good while under their care. If a student is hungry, thirsty, or does not have clean clothes the staff members will do what they can. In the past two years, the school system has improved. We have better teachers, principal, and coaching staff. I am blessed to be an Olney High School senior.

It's a great place to have a high school education. The close communtiy with traditions and cultures help make Olney ISD great. I have been in the Olney's school system from pre-k to my current senior year, its an amazing place to gain long-term friendships and an education. Also the staff to student ratio is basically 1 to 6 in a classroom which mean you get hands on attention on school work. Olney,Texas is a great place to have an education!
I loved the extracurricular activities available in Olney. I was able to compete in everything that I wanted to, and I was able to also be successful in everything.
I would like to see that our school ends up offering more and more dual credit and AP courses. I feel that I wasn't offered enough throughout my years here, and I hope for the sake of others, that they end up having more choices than me.
