    Overall Experience: 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.
