Olentangy is a remarkable school that is willing to help any student prosper and flourish. One of my favorite experiences was in a German III class. Our teacher was telling us his experiences about German culture. To immerse us, the teacher taught everyone a traditional German dance to Traditional German music.

I love this school with all my heart, I will be very sad when I graduate, I will always be a brave. If I could I would go back to high school and do it again, that's how much I can honestly love the school and the environment. The student body is crazy, we would do anything for each other, and we support each other through everything. I can honestly say that the friends I have made going to Olentangy High School are and will be life long friends, the people you meet at high school will probably leave you once we are all off at college, but these are people I want in my life and they are people that will always have your back no matter what. One of my favorite experiences at Olentangy High School, would be the Varsity Football games, they are crazy and by far the best experience to be apart of. Nobody understands how crazy the student section is until your part of it, we are crazy cheering for our fellow classmates. This is something that you wouldn't want to miss, high school football games is just a start in my book, I cant wait to go to college football games and do the same thing with even more amounts of energy to cheer on the school.

Olentangy is a really good school with no major issues. There are some minor issues, but always things that can be worked out.
