The Overlake School Reviews

76 reviews
All Categories
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!
Review The Overlake School
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.
The teachers genuinely care about providing the students with information that they will retain and utilize in the future. They not only answer the 'how?' question in the classroom, but also the 'why?' question as well. Great school!
