Renaissance at Olympic High School was one of the 5 schools within Olympic. I have to say that it was an amazing experience now that I look back at it. I can't say it was the opportunites offered. Certainly wasn't the students, who were overall pretty crude and lazy. The teachers who helped me survive those 4 years are the only thing that would motivate me to re-do high school. Almost each teacher at Renaissance is amazing, creative and have dedication to their students that you couldn't imagine. They literally felt like they could be my family. To one student, a teacher did become her family. He told us a heartbreaking tale of a student who hated him and would curse him out became his adoptive daughter after she ran away from a mentally and physically abusive family. This teacher went as far as contacting an illegal gang to find her after went missing one day. Trust me, this story will really bring you to tears coming from his mouth. I would give these teachers the world if I could.

Olympic High is an overall poorly cleaned and negatively impacted school. The environment is terribly "cleaned" with dead animals, roach infestation, pipe leaks, moldy foods in the cafeteria, not to mention half the staff is only there to get paid - meaning they could care less about the learning atmosphere, future careers, and mental stability of the students that attend. Some rules and regulations seem to fit a prison setting more than a public school setting as this is how the majority of the students felt while attending.
Teachers were great and that's about all that matters when it comes to the individual schools. I feel like I ultimately learned a lot and genuinely learned a lot. The electives in Renaissance are obviously more interesting and engaging. It's Olympic as a whole that made one ready to graduate as soon as possible. It's dirty some faculty in other school's were rude and it felt like it just generally didn't offer much. The five school system seemed unnecessary from day 1, allowing "tracks" would've probably been more effective. Instead you're forced into a small school despite going to one of the biggest schools in the district and most students were stuck in schools they would have no business in now because of a middle school decision of where to go with their friends. Just unnecessary.
