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.
Review Olympus High School
I love this high school so much! I went to the junior high that fed into a different school, but the people there were just too judgmental and snobby for me so I decided to attend Olympus. Everyone at Olympus is so kind and accepting and it is just a wonderful environment. The teachers are some of the best I have ever had and I have done the best academically in my entire span of education. It is such a wonderfully perfect school.
Olympus is a wonderful school. It is in a safe area, and is a safe environment in general. The school is clean, the administration is excellent, and the students are supportive!
