I love my school! At Olympus, you can tell that the teachers love their jobs, and that’s always meant so much to me. I’ve had great experiences working in extracurricular activities, too! It’s clear that each program is equally important to our administration— sports get as much attention as arts— and I think that’s awesome! The students are super hardworking and the classroom environment has been encouraging and positive for me because of them. I’m so glad to have attended high school at such an uplifting and welcoming place.

I like and dislike a lot of things about Olympus. Many of the teachers are wonderful, and the athletics and dance departments are extraordinary. There is a lot of opportunity for every student, and the school really cares about students' various interest. There is unfortunately a somewhat sexist presence in the school, especially with the male teachers and administrators. On many occasions male students are treated with more specialty than the female students. Furthering this, male athletes are almost idolized by teachers and administration, and therefore treated with a lot more respect and leniency. Girls in this school are treated with a lot less respect than boys, and often are sexualized by male students or even teachers. If you are a boy who plays basketball, this is definitely the school for you and I can assure you that you will be honored and idolized every day here by your peers, teachers, and administration!
Olympus High School is a very energetic and quality place to learn. There are a wide variety of engaging classes and a great deal of generous people. The teachers are very willing to help those in need. Everyone at Olympus High is very proud of their school and as you walk the halls you always see people wearing Olympus shirts and gear. I feel as though my school has a very low rate of bullying and I know people would stick up for others if they were ever being harassed.
One of my only complaints with Olympus High is the diversity. Because of the geographical area the diversity at Olympus high in terms of race and economic status can pose a problem because many students are very wealthy. However I can say that the large majority of students are the kindest most dedicated people I have ever met. Go Titans!
