Olympic High School

Address: 1651 16Th Street

Description Olympic High School

The prestigious and popular high school Olympic High School is located in Malibu and is part of the educational organization Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District: a relatively recently received prestigious accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The number of students here is small - only 140 people: for each of them a personal curriculum can be developed with an emphasis on the most difficult topics, disciplines and subjects. Employees - teachers, curators, educators, instructors - take into account the uniqueness of each student's personality, strive to make the most of his strengths and strengths, achieve impressive results regardless of the initial conditions.

Olympic High School participates in the international Nacel Open Door F-1 Public School Program, which enables foreign students to receive education in high schools of American schools. The minimum duration of studying is 1 academic year (from August to June), the age of students is from 15 to 18 years. Schools participating in the program are located in different states: Vermont, North Carolina, California, Maine, etc. Usually lessons last from 8:00 to 15:30 (one session is 45-55 minutes), there is a half-hour break for lunch - at this time students can go to a cafe or dining room or eat lunch cooked at home.

The peculiarity of this program is the full, comprehensive and continuous support of the international students. Employees and supervisors understand very well that many foreign students for the first time go abroad for a long time and alone, so they strive to do everything possible to make stay and study in the country the most comfortable. The program has been successfully working for more than 10 years, hundreds of students have taken part in it - today about 500 pupils participate in Nacel, many of them decided to repeat the studying and return to this system. Students are offered such useful opportunities as:

  • Ongoing assistance to the regional director and local coordinator - they interact with the student personally and his host family, as well as family members in their native country, monitor compliance with living and learning conditions, solve administrative and domestic issues
  • Social staff, highly skilled and experienced, ready to help with any issues and difficult situations
  • 24-hour telephone helpline and support
  • The coordinator of the trip - he is responsible for all student movements, follows the schedule of flights, organizes the transfer and meetings/ seeing off.

In high school students not only receive a large amount of academic knowledge, but fully prepare for admission to college or university, and for a full life in a modern multinational community. The basis for world partnership is the recognition of the uniqueness of each person, his opinion and world outlook, understanding the difference of various cultures, nationality and religion, the ability to freely communicate with each other, mutual respect. Graduates of the senior classes are taught to be independent, self-confident mature persons, learn to take responsibility for words and deeds, to work in a team.

Educational programs in US government institutions are usually selective, so the choice of students here is very attentive. Applicants must demonstrate a good level of academic knowledge, ability to behave, to be persistent and attentive, self-organized, actively participate in extra-curricular activities, clubs and electives. In turn, employees and teachers take full responsibility for the health and safety of their wards. American schools encourage the student exchange in every way: it helps to make the ethnic and cultural composition of students more diverse, to teach children to communicate with each other, to raise the level of self-awareness and mutual respect.

Bear in mind that public high schools in the United States do not guarantee the transfer of early education credits received, mandatory enrollment and the receipt of diplomas - all this depends entirely on the perseverance and commitment of the student. There may also be a partial duplication of studying courses, which is due to the difference in the curricula of the US and its home country.

The curriculum in different institutions may differ - there is no compulsory standard, and schools can vary the schedule and program depending on their own preferences. Usually the educational plan includes classes in the following areas:

  • English Language and Literature
  • Natural Sciences
  • Physics, medicine, hygiene, science of healthy lifestyles
  • Mathematics
  • Social (humanities) sciences: the history of the United States, the Constitution, the US Parliament
  • Business Courses
  • Psychology
  • Philosophy
  • Economy
  • Industrial Design.

Also, high school students can choose the course Honours and Advanced Placement (AP): subjects for them are selected independently after interviews and consultations with teachers. Usually, those disciplines are chosen that are necessary for admission to the selected university and mastering the desired specialization.

Accommodation and food

Students of Olympic High School live in host families of American families. The school staff carefully approaches the selection of families: they are all respectable, honest, law-abiding citizens, many of whom have been cooperating with Näcel for many years. The living conditions are constantly checked and monitored, the local coordinator regularly talks with family members and students to ascertain the quality of the services provided. Families receive sufficient monetary compensation (as a rule, this amount is slightly higher for the representatives of the East Coast - this is due to higher prices and standard of living).

Homestay offers a unique opportunity to constantly practice language and communication skills, to quickly overcome the emotional barrier, to learn more about the traditions, culture and way of life of Americans. Long-term summer holidays students spend in their home country.
