Olympus Junior High School Reviews
Very good school with the highest state testing scores in the region. Classrooms incorporate techonology, through the use of Promethean boards, iPad carts, etc. The school encourages students to be independent and responsible for their own results. Teachers post homework assignments on the school website every day, which is helpful for both parents and kids. Great communication from the school through weekly email blasts.
I've never seen a middle school as good as Olympus Jr. High. My son attended there for 8th grade. It was fabulous. The care both the teachers and the staff put into the students is felt by everyone. They hold high standards of conduct and dress, which also helps children to concentrate on learning. The wood shop and cooking classes are above even some high schools that I've seen. Both my son and I love this school.
This is a great school. Great teachers, fabulous principle, people in the office are very friendly and willing to help. The best part is the my daughter loves it there!!
I loved going to school here. The school was clean and well kept, the teachers were incredible! The principle is very involved and gets along well with all the students. Olympus is my favorite school I've ever attended.
