    "For the most part the teachers at Olympian work and strive to help students achieve more than they believe they can. They push past the preconceived beliefs of what they can do and truly believe that students can achieve whatever they set their minds on. There are of course some teachers who do not fit this description and do not work as hard as the other teachers. But for the most part the teachers are very helpful and cooperative with the students."

    "The classes offered at Olympian high are really good, and prepare you for college life. One of the popular and challenging classes that I notice that a lot of students take is AP U.S. History, the class is not easy like a regular class, but in my opinion it is easier than any other AP class the school offers. The teachers here are good at what they do most of the time, but sometimes there is a teacher who doesn't really teach the class the materials they need. Overall pretty good teachers who are understanding and offer opportunities and tutoring for students in need of help. A way of pushing students to have better grades, the school offers block days, which are Wednesdays and Thursdays, basically we only do 3 periods each day and it is 2 hours of each class, in these 2 hours we have ATP, which is offered the last 30 minutes of class. Students can retake test, quizzes, ask for help, or do homework during this time. If a student earns less than a C during progress report they will have to stay in during their 2 and 5 period ATP, but if the student has above a C, they are given a an award 30 minutes of extra lunch. All the wok that the school offers is really good when it comes to practicing what you learned or getting ready for a test or quiz, however, depending on the classes a student has, is the amount of work they will get. If you take regular classes you will have work, but not a lot. If you are a student who likes challenges and is taking APs and HN, you are probably a workaholic, you don't really have spear time, you get really stressed and the weekend is barely, depending on how much homework you have and when you start it, when you are able to rest and relax."

    "The school contains wide variety of academics and are still increasing its staff in order to provide students with a vast array of choices to choose from. AP classes are strict and have a workload comparable to some college level classes. Many popular classes include computer art, and multimedia production, but that just scrapes the top of the courses offered at Olympian. As a student I can choose classes that were necessary along with ones that focused on subjects that I wanted to pursue in the future. An example of this is criminal justice that is offered for one semester and taught by a professor from Southwestern community college."

    "Teachers at Olympian are relatively very good. The classes you take depend on your aptitude as a student so if you're not very good it will be very evident. If you are exceptional it will be evident. The workload is a lot and sometimes too much at times even with regular classes. It gets worse and worse if you procrastinate. Just get your work done."

    "The teachers are very entertaining and very resourceful. They know how to teach and have a great patience for students. They try not to make the class boring. They use a variety of styles to teach the lesson of the day."
