Olympia High School is a very unique place. The school boasts its diversity, as is draws students of all races, sexualities, religions, languages, etc. due to its massive 3,000 plus students body that is fed from a multitude of public and private middle schools in the Orlando area. The school offers a wide variety of AP classes that some schools may not, as well as having its APEX Program, an academic program that gives students involved special teachers and courses, as well as its own guidance counselor. The school also has strong music and arts programs, as well as their Journalism and Titan TV classes that later morph into vital staffs. However, Olympia faces the same challenges that many Florida schools face: overcrowding and underfunding. The school has so many students that teachers and guidance counselors sometimes have poor communication with students, and the underfunding bleeds into outdated athletic facilities and technology. Also, the general school spirit is fairly low.

Olympia High School is such a safe environment to be yourself. The teachers and staff are amazing and caring. These teachers mean the life to me and have taught me things I will take forever with me. The friendships I have made at this school will live on with me in my future. The day to day experience is always a pleasure. Though the circumstances are hard, Olympia has adjusted and made a way to still have a great time learning and creating a fun but safe learning environment. Olympia also has many opportunities for athletics, arts, and different clubs that allows anyone to join, in doing this, everyone has a space where they belong. For example, I've been in the choir at Olympia for almost all four years now and it was the best decision I've made. My choir teacher is basically my mother and she's the best director I could've asked for. The friends I've made in that class are my best friends. And the music we make is truly life changing. I wouldn't have changed anything.
My overall experience at Olympia was pretty good. Throughout my High School career I've had very good academics and my grades reflected that. The stuff member is also very well discipline and the administration stuff is always there for you as well. Teachers are also very well involved with students, which this is satisfactory because it causes you to create a connection with them and gain more confidence to be able to communicate with whenever you need help. There is a variety of clubs that you can join and if you are not interested you can even create one. I'm thankful to be part of this school, I've grew up here and learn a lot about life, hopefully my experience will guide me to success in college.
