Olympia High School Reviews

It was one of the worts experiences in my life as a Senior student. Some teachers are very disrespectful and lack a care for the student's personal growth.

The school's system could be better. I have IEP papperwork that requires, BY LAW, the school to adjust a few things for my educational success. We (my parents and I) had about four meetings untill we reached the principle for help. It was at this point that it was discoverd that they had the paperwork, but forggot to scan BOTH sides of the Individual Educational Plan. At that point the school year was just about done anyway.

My experience left me feeling like "the transfer student" no one wanted to deal with.

I was enrolled in Olympia's version of an Ivy League program called Apex which you had to apply to in middle school. It was an amazing experience which allowed for a stricter class curriculum and higher expectations of the students. The only downside was that it had all of the makings of an Ivy League program without actually being recognized as one. As for the academics, it was fairly easy even in the accelerated program. That being said the regular or "honors" classes were a breeze making it seem like the teachers dumb down and gloss over the material. Food was terrible, the only safe thing to get was the pizza and that cam pre-made. Tons of activities/clubs to offer however there are a ridiculous amount of club meetings in a month making it difficult to join multiple clubs and be in a sport.
Olympia is great overall, I don’t think I would want to see anything change but improved yes. The one thing I think it could change is that they could help you out finding what you want to do after school, helping you out a little bit more with the college stuff but I guess they don’t actually have to do that. The athletics is really good, if you like sports that is the right school for you. Olympia has great security guards and counselors, which makes you feel safe and good. Olympia is a great school and has all types of community, so it doesn’t matter what you like you’ll always find yourself surrounded with people like you.
