Open Quote Love this school. Been in Olympian from 1st year and now a 3rd year Junior. If you want a pretty good education in the sweetwater area Olympian is for you aha. Many kind people and many sports to play. Teachers are pretty well educated, just ask and they will be willing to help. Peace... Go Eagles! Close Quote

Open Quote I loved this school. At the beginning, moving in Chula Vista, not knowing anybody and going to a brand new high school seemed alien to me. I didn't know anybody, I didn't know this place; it just seemed like I crashed landed on mars. As time passed, I have created friends who honestly cared about their education as I did, met rigorous, hard teachers that give you full attention and want you to achieve, not an A+, but what the student can earn best with their own abilities, and a staff that encourages students throughout any sport, test, a dance performance and hardship high school never fails to give. The Habits of Mind become a burden throughout the four years, but their lesson proves to prevail; soon, the students know what the term 'Metacognition' is - To think of others thinking and thoughts; everything in the habits became second nature to our learning and helped with the foundation of learning. Throughout all my four years, there were fluctuations on my grades. In receiving a D in AP World History nearly the end of the year, my teacher encouraged me to a final project, to do my best, to put not only my knowledge into it, but also my creative and imaginative skills, and collaboration. I earned a B-. I love the teachers, I love the school and I love Olympian. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
