Throughout my four years being at Olton High School there have been changed to staff and administration. Throughout my sophomore through senior year, we had a change at principal and superintendent. Ever since then the school has been great. More opportunities for students, better food, more things to get involved with. Olton High School is a great choice for students who want to succeed in life! Here in Olton we have a variety of things such as athletics, art club, spanish club, 4-H and FFA. All of these organizations teach you a little something about life and responsibility. We have great resources here in town that could help you out in any way you struggle. The Olton community is truly something special.

There are many things to like about Olton High School this includes, great teachers, small class sizes, close friendships, and extracurricular activities. My overall experience for attending Olton High School is a really good one. I cannot complain about much. I have learned so much and made so many great friends and memories. The one thing that we could possibly improve is the technology that is used, such as computers.
I love Olton High School because it's a small school and everyone gets along with each other. Anybody in the student body or adults in faculty are willing to help in a time of need. The only thing I would like to change is that we have too many rules, and not enough leeway to stand out physically.
