Olpe High school is a safe, family involved, sports focused high school. I have gone to Olpe schools for 12 years and I have never had a day where I didn't feel safe to go to school. Olpe always finds a way to get kids involved in extra activities being either through sports or honor flight. The staff at Olpe High school is very friendly and you have the opportunity to know them personally, they are always willing to help if you are willing to ask. Everything in this high school is easy to get accustomed to but the short comings are defiantly in diversity. The diversity is very poor here many of the kids in this school are related in someway or another and there is very little if any racial diversity. Although we don't have much diversity we are always taught to be respectful to everyone even when it is hard. Overall I feel like this school is a great place to be.
It's a good school with a very close community that is very involved and supportive. Everyone in the community is always supportive of the kids. The school needs updated, but that is in the process. We are in the process of adding onto our school to accommodate for the large classes. The administration could definitely use some work, they don't listen and tend to spend our money on things that are not needed or that are not supported by the school and the community.
