Olympian High School Reviews

Olympian High School is a relatively new school in the SUHSD that has a lot of potential. This school does have a lot of really good qualities and some that are need of improvement. For example I was very involved with the Orchestra program, VP of the fashion club, in numerous sports and was a tutor. I was very focused on my studies and was able to manage it well with extra curricular and friendships that I still have to this day! Two of my favorite opportunities that Olympian gives is that their goal is to prepare each student for a 4 year university and give the chance to automatically attend SDSU as long as minimal requirements are meant. I think that is very good way to motivate students to go straight to a 4 year university. One thing that Olympian could improve in would be administration involvement for example bullying from students and staff that could be dealt with a lot better.

Overall, I've had a great experience at this high school. Most teachers are very welcoming and understanding, and you feel comfortable sharing any school-related issues with them. Although there are a few teachers that may be lacking when it comes to teaching, there are several excellent teachers. Also, I feel that the adults provide any resources that they are physically and financially capable of providing. The students are mostly kind to their peers, and Olympian's also very diverse and safe. That being said, this school heavily focuses on College Preparation and readiness, which may be advantageous or stress-inducing, depending on the individual. In my first years at this school, I found this process helpful and I never felt too pressured by the system. Nonetheless, I personally know people who find this aspect of Olympian stressful, tedious, and pointless. In my opinion, however, Olympian has many positive aspects that allow you to overlook this minor detail.
Before freshman year, I spent my summer deciding what high school to go to(didn't want to attend EHS.) I wanted a school that focused on students' academic abilities and preparation for college. In middle school, I did not participate in activities. I wanted to change that, and seeing the students' spirit, I knew that I wanted to call Olympian home.

Freshman year, I joined the school's orchestra and yoga club and became Vice President. Sophomore year, I continued orchestra, became Vice president, and played Varsity Field Hockey. This year I am a Link Leader(upperclassmen guiding freshman through their first year), continued orchestra, became President, and played Novice Swim(the season was canceled due to COVID-19), and joined the surf club.

In addition to the activities I participate in regularly, I will say that there are not many non-formal dances. Aside from the events that were canceled due to COVID-19, I am delighted with my experience so far and look forward to senior year.
