Olympus High School Reviews

I loved Oly! The atmosphere there is so energetic and fun. I felt like the teachers there genuinely care about each student and make a real effort to make sure that they each succeed. I also felt super prepared for college, maybe even a little over prepared. Mr. Felt (he teaches AP Euro and Honors World Civ) especially made sure that his students were well prepared for college.

Olympus is lacking in the diversity department when it comes to people of different races and ethnicities. Most students are the typical white Utahn. When I was there, there were some immigrants and refugees from the Middle East, but not a lot. When it comes to the diversity of personalities of students and interests, Olympus is thriving in that area. There is a club or a sport or an organization to fit every student.

Olympus High School has given me the opportunity to have a real high school expirence. The teachers there are incredible! I have so many options to choose from when it comes to classes. The kids who attend Olympus are great! We don't have very much diversity in the school considering the area which is too bad, but it is a great school. It is a school full of dedicated hardworking kids!
Olympus High School has been an amazing opportunity for me and I've loved my time at Olympus. Olympus has an outstanding facility that is available for anyone to use. I've been on the Cross County team for two years and I absolutely love the team. There is great team spirit and everyone no matter the skill level is welcomed. Olympus has a great class selection so you are really able to learn about what you want to learn. Finally, Olympus has amazing spirit. Everything is always planned out right and involves everyone. The student section at all sports is amazing to be a part of. The one thing I would have Olympus work on is it's diversity. Everything about Olympus is amazing, except we fall a little short when it comes to diversity and I would love to see a bit more variety.
