My experience with the Olympus program has been amazing. If there's something I'm interested in, then they are interested in making it happen. There are so many sports teams and clubs available to students and the new building is very very nice! My teachers push me but they also care that I do well and they are willing to work with me. The counselors work so hard to make sure all of us are looking towards college, and they give us every opportunity they can to keep us on track for college scholarships and admittance. Olympus isn't just a high school---it's a place to guide students toward their dreams and get them ready to make their dreams happen.

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.
There is so much to compliment about Olympus High School! Its a super safe area and very friendly as well! Everyone is very nice and polite to each other; very respectable! They do a very great job helping you find your path and getting you into the right classes in order to pursue your dream! There are so many options given at the school and its great to get help in deciding and getting you on your feet before you leave high school! The school spirit is outstanding! Our student section, at home or away, is always the biggest and the loudest sections in our district! The crowd really gets into it and makes every event worth it! It's a school where you can get great academic options while enjoying your high school experience
