I love this school, it's great. The teacher TEACH, the students are friendly and I'm in the marching band. So fun


Posted January 14, 2014

Although this school seems to do a great job with most students, if you have a student with special needs, I would really do my research. Our experience was not a positive experience and if I could rate the school lower, I would. The counselors are not well trained to deal with students who have special needs. The support staff was not supportive nor did they seem to know how to support student learning. Support for IEPs is limited if existent at all. Administrators' solutions to problems in the classroom seemed to be to suspend the child each and every time. Not an effective strategy when dealing with unmotivated and disengaged students. I would not recommend this school if you have a student with special needs.

My son is a freshman and is having a great experience. He is a transfer student and we have to drive him to the east side. He is also is the marching band and loves it. We are very happy at this school.

So far, my freshman is not having a good experience. The kids are unfriendly, 98% wear very inappropriate clothing, and 99% can't seem so talk in sentences that contain less than 3-5 curse words. Several of the teachers have little patience with the kids. The parent functions usually involve the new principal spending a lot of time talking about statistics, numbers, acronyms, etc. I'd rather visit classrooms and see performances. Hopefully things will change, if not, I'll be looking for another school. Really too bad, because my child had elementary & middle school experiences that were OUTSTANDING and has lifelong friends from both. Really sad to see things going this way in high school. Not sure why the school isn't focusing on the language problem and the dress code. Playing loud music during lunch time doesn't help the situation. Not every child in interested in "partying" at lunch time, nor should it be forced upon them. The academic choices seem good. Homework is a bit too much - more than 3 hours each night. So far, not so impressed, therefore, I would not recommend sending your child to this school.

We enrolled our daughter here since we came from Hawaii, which she was doing poorly in school, and I am very happy we did. Her grades have gone up and she absolutely loves the school, they have a great program, I love the communication from the teachers and school, they are doing a great job!!

I am currently a senior here and have been attending since sophomore year. This skill is founded on great principles and really focuses on our education. I absolutely love this school and will miss it once I leave. The teachers are always helpful and make learning interesting. It has a great vibe that everyone can just be able to get along with one another. Our motto, " Where Champions are Made!"

I love my school. I am currently a senior at Olympian high school and a student since the first day its wings opened. I will remain an Eagle for life! We are new but we are well known. Teachers are amazing, staff makes sure we are safe and we are all motivated to keep the school having a great stature in our society. The classes are challenging but teachers encourage and commit in working with their students. Each year that had passed since I first came, it just got better. This year, I have great teachers and I love learning. I will miss Olympian once I graduate but surely, we are the first four year students at OHS! I am an Eagle for life.

I am currently a senior student of Olympian High and I absolutely love my school. I have attended Olympian High ever since the school first opened in 2006. School is like a second home and I really think that students of Olympian do not mind having to come to school everyday. All the students and teachers make the atmosphere really friendly and calm. There is not any scandalous drama like there is in other schools. The students are really encouraged to do their best and I know for a fact that almost every student of the senior class is enrolled in at least one advanced placement class. As a student, I feel a little overwhelmed sometimes but overall my experience at Olympian has been positive. GO EAGLES!!!!!!!! GO ACADEMIC LEAGUE!!!!!!!!

We enrolled our son here rather reluctantly and have been pleasantly surprised at how well the school is run, how well parents/tachers communicate and how the use of technology is encouraged. From 'MY Gradebook.com' to personal emails, we are always able to check up on what's going on.

Im am a senior at this school right now & I've been going here since sophomore year. I am confident to say that this school is the best highschool your sons/daughters would ever go to. Every class offers a high-quality education that I can not even compare to other schools in the district. All of my teachers are very helpful and tries to get to know me in a more personal level that actually ensures my success in their classes. Also, with a principal like Mr. Devore, I am sure that there are gonna be more successful students that this school would produce in the future.I have a great respect for Mr. Devore not only because of how he outstandingly does his job but because of how he shows sincerity and concern in the success of every student.

This is a great school - principal and staff are dedicate to supporting all students to become ready and ABLE to succeed in a 4 yr college, if they choose to go. First school in district to ever score a 6/0 in WASC accreditation; the accreditation team said 'this school would be a model school for any high school wanting to earn a 6/0 score!'

I enrolled my son at this school this year of 2009. I rated this school excellent because from the receptionist all the way up to the principal, they showed so much concern. I am very grateful that I enrolled my son to this school. The school curriculum and its teachers are great. Its students are well mannered. My overall rating of olympian is 'it is the best among the rests'. Olympian is unique, it is nestled in country atmosphere, where students can focus more on their studies. The teachers deserve to be commended, as well as mr. Devore, the principal, and the vice principal, Ms. Leano. She is great and super. She made sure students are not left behind. Great school

As a senior of this high school, I am really proud to be an Olympian eagle. We engage ourselves to become prepared for college and strengthen our college readiness skills and Habits of Mind. Every few months every teacher is uniform in teaching the students to practice the college readiness skills. These include practicing summary, evaluation, analyzing, describing, and synthesizing. Every student is to become familiarized in their Habits of Mind which consists of metacognition, intellectual peserverance and also intellectual curiousity. Although Olympian is a small school, it will become into a great school followed by great morals and values. The staff members will try to assure and fulfill the mission statement of the school. very graduate of Olympian High School will qualify and be academically ready for success in a four year college or university.' Olympian High School- 'Where champions are made.'

Olympian High School is a great school. Our principal makes sure that every student is college-bound and teaches us the skills that we will need in college. Olympian has very high standards and has been a challenge for me for the past 2 years. However, I know that this will all the more prepare me for college.

It's a fun school to be at. The teachers and other students are all pretty nice. The varsity sports are at were we can be but we're still growing. As a student the schedules can be modified, because Wednesdays have periods 1,2,3 for two hours each period and on Thursdays we have periods 4,5,6. We don't have that big of an attention span!! Anyways it a great school to go to.

I went to Olympian high school for my freshamn and most of my sophomore years, and believe me I've gone to my fair share of schools. I've moved several times and just moved back to texas in March of 2008. Out of all the school I have been to, this has been the best one by far. Teachers and staff most definately give an enormous effort into teaching their students and making their classes interesting, you can tell they care about our future. Anyone who has the opportunity to go through the 'olympian experience' is very lucky, you have no idea how huge of a difference it isfrom other school. Going to OHS was one of the best choices I have made so far, and it was a huge loss. Cristina Alvarado

My oldest son started his high school career this year and chose to attend Olympian High School. The school is outstanding with a great principal and caring teachers and coaches. My son has always been an excellent student-athelet and continues to excel in both aspects at this high school. Most of the parents are also supportive and involved, although it would be great to see more parents. My husband and I are looking forward to next two years when our younger sons begin school there. Go eagles!

Olympian High School is is unique. The school is unique because of the excellent leadership from our staff and the genuine effort they give in providing the student body with a healthy learning environment. Although the school's teachers are not all charismatic people with passions for teaching, it is the norm.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
