Olympia High School Reviews

53 reviews
All Categories
Olympia High School is home to many teachers who are focused on individualizing each student's learning experience. Olympia has also provided each student with a chromebook to take every advantage offered by technology to advance education. However, in an effort to progress education, Olympia has adopted Standards Based Grading (SBG) and eliminated the use of a traditional grading system (A-F). The swift implementation has resulted in some confusion regarding a student's grades and what is necessary to achieve the best grade. There are also multiple activities and athletics for students to be involved in which include musical, social, intellectual, and physical options. Of course, if students wish to establish their own club, they are encouraged to do so.

Going to Olympia has been one of the most life-changing experiences for me. Being born from a different country, the teachers and staff along with the students have been very generous and kind. I have learned and experienced so many things I never thought I would. Olympia has taught me to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. I love how they are always trying to make every student involved, even if they aren’t in a sport or extra curricular activity. They teachers are always eager to help and teach everyday inside and outside of the school. My experiences at Olympia have been amazing and I wouldn’t want to change it any other way.
Olympia High School is constantly making improvements to the school and the facilities. They have made our school a better place to learn by keeping up to date with the technology and grading systems. The connections among the teachers, staff, and fellow students is what you want to see in a school. Overall, Olympia High School has a great atmosphere, good place to learn, and prepare for college.
