Olentangy really excels in acedmics. It is a very competitive environment & there are many challenging courses. Liberty offers so many different classes for a wide range of students. The environment the teachers provide are also a good learning environment with a lot of hands on & critical thinking. Another thing Liberty offers are so many different clubs. They do a nice job of providing clubs for everyone's different interest & even give you the option to start your own if you don't have any you are interested in. Another great aspect of Liberty is the sports team. Liberty excels in athletics! It is very competitive & there are also so many fans out to support those sports teams. Overall, my experience at Liberty has been swell & I am glad I get to be a part of this school.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved at OLHS. There are several clubs that don't require much commitment, and then there are those that you can immerse yourself into fully. In additon, its not too hard to start your own club if any of the current ones don't quite fit what you are looking for. For example, my friends and I started a blanket tying club so that we could donate the blankets we made to Nationwide Children's Hospital, where our friend and teammate was being treated for Leukiemia. Clubs are diverse, including academic clubs, service clubs, language clubs, and clubs just for fun! Besides these, our sports at Liberty are excellent. There are several to get involved in, however each requires much commitment for a large portion of the year. Our students are pretty good at showing support for bigger sports, however we can lack in the cheering department for smaller sports.

I love Liberty, it truly is a wonderful place to experience the "coming of age" time of our lives. Not only are academics excellent, but the athletics and extra curriculars are just as full of opportunities to thrive. One thing that really separates Liberty from other schools is our ability to come together as a whole, despite our differences. In the past two years, we have had two students that were diagnosed with Leukiemia and had to take off at least a year of school to recieve treatment. In these times of struggle, our school has done much to show our support. Selling T-shirts to raise funds for the Nationwide Children's Hospital, hosting both football, field hockey, and other sporting events in honor of each student who was diagnosed to raise money and awareness, starting clubs to make blankets for other patients at the hospital, hosting a father-daughter dance for the Powell community in order to spread awareness and raise money, and simply sending positive messages over social media and in person. Even as our school is a very competitive environment academically, socially, and athletically, these hard times have made us stronger and we have shown that we can come together as one.
