Great school if you are wealthy or into sports. Other than conferences, VERY POOR communication with parents when students are struggling.Half of two years has been a huge disappointment for the alleged reputation this school has. Huge. Some teachers need to be reminded they are there to educate not just to gather a paycheck or be on a power trip. A few teachers are flat out mean and act immature towards students. It ruins it for the great teachers at this school, that obviously are devoted. A teacher's attitude comes home with the students. They talk about the good and the bad.
This school has officailly been ranked one of the top 20 High schools in America due to Academics, Sports, Leadership, Community, volunteering etc. This school is TOP notch! there is not a school out there that can beat it!!!
Contrary to popular belief, East isn't the school that everyone cracks it up to be. I've been able to experience the environments at both Olathe North and East. East is much more clique ridden and it is harder to make friends out of your social 'group.' The teachers at North really cared about me as a person and I was able to create connections with them on a personal level. The science dept. at North is WAY better!
There is so much work in every class, you cant even keep a job. Teachers book you with tons of work, but the teachers are nice and the students are excepting of others. This school isnt the best school ive ever been to. This school is a hassle to keep up with good grades, and im an honor roll student.
