Layton Prep School is excellent. I was bullied at my previous school and at the previous school the teachers misunderstood me all the time and were inexperienced dealing with kids having learning differences, I was unhappy. Both the students and the teachers made the environment very toxic for my existence. Now, at this school the teachers respect me and my opinions and have the patience listen to what I have to say. The classmates are very friendly and accepting, I never feel being excluded because I think differently. I came to this school with very good grades from the other school. Academics were not a problem. This school is excellent academically, it continue to challenge me and also help me work on my weaknesses. I have more opportunities participate in clubs and sports than before. Most importantly, the school environment help me build confidence and believing in myself. I give Layton Prep my highest recommendation.


Posted February 9, 2013

Last year Layton prep was an ok school but this year it's pretty bad. Things have been very unorganized since they switched locations like having our morning meeting in the middle of the hallway. The class size keeps growing when it's supposed to be a small school. the teahers are helping students less. Lots of students are failing. While innocent students get in school suspensions for small things, students who bully other students keep getting away with it and never get suspended. Everybody who goes there hates it including me which is why I'm going to a different school next year. This is why I do not recomend Layton Preparatory School!

The administration at this school has done an excellent job in creating a comfortable community to enrich learning in multiple ways including traditional methods as well as more progressive and unique approaches to education.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
