I really enjoy my time at this school. The teachers take time to explain every little detail, if needed they provide individual help. Also we have the best 4A football team in the state being ranked number one in our region. GO BRAVES!

Bountiful High is a very good school. The teachers care about my student and always answer back my emails if I have any questions. The administration is decent, considering the go to every sport at least once. As for extra curricular activities, most of the money goes to the Football team, Basketball team, or Drill team, all of which have had tremendous success. Although some of the 'less popular' sports such as wrestling, swimming and tennis don't get much student or financial support.

Bountiful High is OK. There are many fine teachers there but there seems to be no consistency. No leadership. Counseling staff and Foreign Language department were above average, while other areas were very poor. Administrative office can be very difficult to contact, I rarely received a person on the line when calling during business hours. Messages were not returned for days. The honors English program was well below standard. More than one of the teachers seemed 'clueless' or uncaring about grades; when my student was getting 'C's in a class that he normally excelled in, I was told with a smile 'he's fine.' When asked how he could improve I received the same answer. The extra-curricular programs were on average below standard. There seems to be a lack of school spirit here. This is perhaps due to the 'checkerboard' boundary pattern, that keeps students separated by economic class.

Bountiful High really is a fantastic school. Its small size allows for a real communal feeling among its students and provides an easy opportunity for the students to know their peers, teachers, and administrators personally. The administrators are willing and able to listen to any student who walks through their doors and the teachers are fun and care about a quality education. Like any other school students who apply themselves will be successful, but here there is a particular emphasis on college preparation, athletic achievement, and musical performance that ensures all kinds of students are cared for and have an opportunity to achieve. All this makes Bountiful High a wonderful school, but in particular the feeling of friendliness and community make it, in my opinion, the best high school in Davis County.

My student really enjoys Bountiful High School. The administration does alot to make it a safe place to spend your day. It is a smaller school, and we like that. It has many good kids to be friends with. It is in an upper income neighborhood and has a strong emphasis on being college bound.
