The Overlake School Reviews

I cannot imagine a better school for my son. The faculty is amazing, the campus is beautiful and the administration shows how much they really care.

Matt Horvat has brought an incredible energy to the school and Mike Davidson does an amazing job in the middle school. Megan Waddle engages with the students and has personally encouraged my son to continue to come out of his shell. Thank you, Megan!

Most of all, Overlake guides the students in their journey to become intellectually curious, well-rounded global citizens. I could not ask for more.

Some teachers are just not good at their jobs. Students regularly will have one or two teachers that are inconsistent with grading, bad at handling the classroom, not very knowledgeable, and not dedicated to teaching. Some will not teach at all, instead choosing to show videos or have students teach themselves in the classroom which is very unhelpful. Teachers that are teaching separate sections of the same course will have a huge disparity win grades between the classes because one is inconsistent with the other.

On the other hand, many of the teachers here are INCREDIBLE. You end up being genuine friends with them and want to visit after school just to hang out. They are very involved in your lives and care about you and your school performance. I send christmas cards to many of my teachers, even after graduation!
Our child has had an excellent experience at Overlake. The academic, athletic, social and extra-curricular opportunities are excellent. The campus is spectacular and the school community is very supportive. I feel that the school offers rigorous academics balanced by a nurturing environment that makes it safe to take risks. The class offerings are varied and interesting and are standards are high, but teachers are available and supportive. I feel very fortunate that we are part of a such a wonderful school.
