Olympus High School Reviews

243 reviews

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!
There are a lot of good things about Olympus. First of all, the building is new and beautiful. It might seem superficial, but it definitely helps me study. Lots of windows means lots of nice light and less claustrophobia, which is nice. I would criticize the language teachers though, as what is supposed to be immersion very often turns into just saying the same things twice, once in the target language and once in translation. The ASL class is a definite exception to the rule, however. I would also say that the courses tend not to be too challenging. Of course there are exceptions, but I would say that there should definitely be a different way of marking who is in what level of class. By this, I mean remedial, honors, core, etc. should be separated differently. Utah has a generally weak education and testing system compared to my experience in other states, so I struggle with whether Olympus is at fault here or whether this is symptomatic of a larger issue.
