    "Olathe Northwest High School has fantastic school pride. There are lots of school traditions at football games, assemblies, and other events that aim to, and succeed in, making one very proud to be an ONW Raven. The demographics of the school is quite varied, which makes it much easier to find one's place and establish relations early on in one's high school career. While feeling comfortable in one's environment is very important, the main reason to go to school is to get an education. ONW has fantastic faculty that do a great job of preparing students for the next grade and/or college. The school offers a wide variety of classes, from working with food in culinary, to taking college level courses like College Algebra or College Biology as a junior and sometimes even a sophomore, to even working with various animals in class ad learning survival techniques in Student Naturalist, it is very easy to focus on your passion and excel at it, while also getting a great education."

    "The school is very rigorous. Almost everyone is in at least one AP class or College Course. Overall, although it was extremely challenging, I'd say it prepared me very well for college, and I had a very positive experience going there for all 4 years."

    "The school has great teachers in every area of the school. The issue is getting those teachers. Half the teachers I have had are amazing, and I've learned so much and been inspired to excel by them in ways I couldn't imagine. The other half of the teachers were awful. They were marking off for ridiculous things on assignments, they would treat students like lost clueless puppies rather than high schoolers, or do an absolutely poor job at keeping efficient in the classroom and actually succeed at educating. I've had teachers who are three chapters behind in a textbook while other teachers are a week ahead in the same class. The test scores between those classrooms were different and should reflect that the teacher is not a fit for the school. What I found helpful was that my great teachers the last four years understood the frustration of their students, and offered help in many different ways. I'll never forget the impact the great teachers left on myself and my peers."

    "I am highly involved at Olathe Northwest through theater, dance, forensics, and choir among other things. I feel that I have had one of the best experiences that a student can have in a high school because I am constantly given opportunities that others are not and I enjoy every event I have attended whether it be a football game, a play, or a dance. One think I would like to improve is the overall atmosphere which I wish could be more positive. I am well aware that not every day of high school is going to be better than the last and I am not going to get along with every student. I would like there to be more music, more connection opportunities, and more affirmations throughout the school. That is one major way we can increase overall happiness in the halls of Olathe Northwest."
