Olympic Heights Teacher Under Fire for Sexual Relation with Student

According to WPTV, a local high school teacher is under fire for having a sexual relationship with a student, fixing grades, and giving students money.

The teacher in question, Peter Muhlbach, 53, is currently a math teacher at Olympic Heights High School in West Boca Raton.

According to WPTV, Muhlbach’s actions were during his time as a teacher at Long Island High School in Queen, New York.

The Special Commissioner of Investigation for the New York City School District stated investigating Muhlbach in December of 2018 when it received an anonymous tip that said Muhlbach had photos on social media with a female student inside a bar.

The investigation found Muhlbach starting sleeping with a student in 2015, gave her alcohol and marijuana on several occasions and that she moved into his apartment upon graduation.

An extensive report shows that Muhlbach had a history of giving out gifts, and money to female students, as well as giving them the grade they wanted in the class.

According to the report, Muhlbach texted one student and asked her what grade she wanted. She told him she wanted a 90, and that is the grade she received. Another student came forward and confessed that Muhlbach gave her $50 in cash on her 16th birthday.

The School District of Palm Beach County School said in a statement that the district recently became aware of the allegations made in New York against Muhlbach.

The investigation is ongoing.
