Olympia High School as cliche as it is was like a second home to me during the four years of High School. Olympia offers a great number of staff, admin, and teachers that all are entrenched in the success of their students. With a large and diverse catalogue to opt-in for AP courses, performing arts, clubs, sports team, surely Olympia will offer that special something for everyone. It would be a disservice to talk about Olympia without mentioning their APEX program. APEX is a program for a large group of students of their class that due to their academic excellence take more rigorous classes and teachers. Olympia is without a doubt the best public school in Orange County, with many sports, clubs, arts, and classes for everyone

Tons of clubs, activities, and programs. Many different levels and types of classes and teachers for students at different academic levels and with different interests. Tons of sports to choose from as well. Everyone will find somewhere to fit in, there are many groups: artists, 'nerds', 'jocks', cheerleaders, gamers, etc. Plenty of opportunities for college readiness: tutoring, volunteering, college-level courses...
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.
