4 College Freshman

Academics: Some classes are challenging but the key to passing these classes are the participation of the student. If you take good notes you will be fine.

3 College Student

Academics: Olathe High School is a very small school, however, it does very well for the amount of students it has. The small class sizes allows the students to get to know their teachers on a more personal level.The curriculum for the main classes are very well structured, and have potential to teach the students well. For the college level classes, the curriculum is not as advanced and lack in the amount of materials covered. Registering for classes are made easy, but the counselors are not very helpful in finding the right classes for their individual students.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm in trying to get into the nursing program. The classes are obviously difficult, but if you put in the time and effort to study and go to class then you will succeed.
