North Summit High School
Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

I taught myself more than the teachers ever did. The actively worked against me trying to learn at my actual level instead of "grade level" (which I'm pretty sure is actually far below national standards.)

They give decent amounts of homework, but they are not challenging at all if you actually know anything. The homework needs to actually challenging.

The school seems to do it's best to grind anyone with a spec of possibility in them into the dust. The amount of ridiculously asinine busy work is mind numbing even for average students and soul crushing for anyone above average.

Oh hell no. The amount of name calling and physical altercations that can happen IN CLASS is horrifying and teaches students to be anything but respectful.

With the Good Ol' Boy system in place, students learn that as long as they have the right last name they can get away with anything.

It doesn't encourage anything in students besides just barely maintaining the status quo. The students don't have respect for anything or anyone. There's a reason most of the students never leave Coalville, they can't make it even on the outskirts of the real world.

Going to school here was horrific, and not just because of the disrespectful students. The teachers have no idea how to teach and actively punish students who excel. If you don't go at their slow as mud pace, then it's common for teachers to dock points or send you to the principle just because you don't need your hand held and go through the baby steps in high school. The students aren't any better. It's a Good Ol' Boy system so as long as you have the right family ties it doesn't really matter what the students do. I saw fellow students reduced to tears because of the behavior of some of the students, IN CLASS, and the teacher did nothing. It's fine if all you ever want to do with your life is be a farmer, play football, or run track. If you ever want to actually do anything with your life, this school will only ever hinder your progress. This school will not prepare anyone for college, even the lowest tiered colleges.

Not the greatest experience. A few good teachers. Needs some work to compete with neighboring schools for academic. Lots of emphasis on athletics.

I find after transfering to Park City that North Summit isnt very good in academics and students only do good because teachers assign easy assignments and rig them so kids get good grades. After being top of the class in North Summit than transfering to Park City I was in the average level of students and couldn't get into some classes. The teachers aren't good at handling classes or teaching. We waste 30 minutes of a 45 minute class because of students lack of respect and goofing off and nobody really wants to go anywhere except a few to lowly Utah colleges that only the very low percentile in park city even go to. The money goes to football and sports too much and other clubs of the few there get hardly any money. Thier is no clubs for academics really. The students end up retaking freshman classes as seniors. Thier isn't any college or honor classes like in Park City. They only have a few teachers who shouldn't teach at a high school level. The last thing is the principal and now superintendant and vice principal let kids get away with whatever they want. I found after going to Park City North Summit isn't proficient like they make you believe.

It is true that parents seem to be more supportive of sports instead of academics at North Summit High. Perhaps that is because most of the students there don't aspire to anything higher than graduating from high school and then going about starting a family. It's sad, but true. However, for a fortunate few, there are parents who put their focus on acedemics. They realize the world is much bigger than Coalville and have hopes that when their children graduate and leave Coalville, they will be better prepared for the real world.
