Olentangy School Spirit

Olentangy School Spirit

At Olentangy High School we prepare our students to be successful in the next stage of their lives. This sounds simple enough, but Olentangy High School is recognized across the country. Colleges and Universities have accepted our students to attend their school and our kids continue to be successful wherever life takes them. We try to help them find their passion and in doing so they become driven to perform at high levels.

Olentangy has high expectations for the students. Do not be mistaken, we have very talented students that walk in our building every day. They have the same expectations of us as we do of them. They expect to be challenged and pushed to be their best. We hold them accountable for all of the decisions that they make good or bad. Our students make a choice and they will be held accountable.Finally, we love our students at Olentangy. We tell the kids we love them, care about them and want them to be successful.

Olentangy High School is recognized as a top performing school in the annual U.S. News and World report and continues to rise in the rankings. When compared with other schools, we have no comparison. Other schools may have been split once or twice or redistricted for the addition of a new high school in a district, but we challenge that no high school across the country has been split three times and maintained the culture and community that Olentangy High school has.
