    The Olentangy School district over all is an exceptional district with great school. Olentangy Orange HS is a crowning jewel in the districts an already illustrious crown. The families students teachers coaches and administration are first class. The principle is available and very humble about his responsibility to the community he serves. The school's communication is timely and informative. The Pioneer spirit at each school activity is outstanding. This is a school you can belong to become involved in and be part when you leave it's hall that you are an alumni of.

    School is brand new in 2008. School has advanced programs and many class selections.

    It is a newer school so the kinks are being worked out. There are several dedicated teachers. I have had good success with the guidance staff. However I remain unimpressed with the AP program process and the general depth of communication provided to parents at both the teacher and administrative levels. I am particularly unimpressed with the principal at this time and I have high hopes that he grows into his job.
