Great sports school, if you are a player of one of the more major sports you will do fine. All departments but sports are under funded or overlooked. There are a wide range of teachers from the nice to tyrannical. avoid taking classes from sport coaches if possible, if you like challenges.
I completely hate this school. It'd probably be a great school if you were a pretty, preppy, and popular. If you are a little out of the ordinary, you will NOT fit in. I haven't found one teacher who isn't a mormon (they definitely state their beliefs). I used to go to South Cache and I fit in pretty well, I moved schools and came out, now that I'm back, no one talks to me. My friend actually got asked why they would hang out with a lesbian. The vice principal actually harrased me because I got into a bit of trouble a year ago. I'm a graduating junior who's taking five AP classes this year. Just because I got into trouble, doesn't mean I'm a bad kid. Aren't teachers supposed to recognize that? And on top of just social- things, I haven't learned a thing at this school.
the teachers didn't grade us on ability but on compliance. the students harassed me for hugging my girlfriend in the hall to the point of throwing books at us. The school rather then addressing the problem banned all PDA (hugging) in the school. the teachers wasted my time and bored me to tears. I spent more time doing personal study then what they where suppose to be teaching me. no help with college prep no help with anything that would matter when i left. I struggled after leaving to get into weber state and eventually started my own business and i'm doing just fine. I learned very little while in school, I've learned much more from TED, Skeptics guide, and many more independent learning resources.
I love Mountain Crest! It's the best school I have ever been to, and I love how you're accepted no matter what your race, religion, beliefs, (etc...) are. Everyone's so nice and there's not really any social groups because there's so many people and they are just so accepting. I love MC! <3
I moved to cache valley during high school and felt so welcome at Mountain Crest. My loyalty will lie with the orange and blue forever. It is a great school with great kids. There are so many people who are friendly and polite. It was so easy for me to make friends even though I moved from far away and I didn't know anyone.
I currently go to MC and we love to have new people come and get to know everyone. Everybody know everybody and who they are, what they like to do. People say hi to you in the halls even if they really don't tend to know you as 'best friends'
It appears to me that this school functions on who you are and what your last name is rather than your abilities.
We just moved here and I must say this school would be fantastic if you were one of the natives. If not you will never be accepted.
I think that this school is the best of all. All of my family members have gone to this school! and i love it it has the best teachers the best classes! i think its' way awesome!!
I loved Mountain Crest. Everything was perfect and I really always felt apart of something really special. The staff is great and I love still going and visiting. We had a great graduating class and most scored above average on all tests. The class choices were awesome with a wide variety from ceramics to law enforcemant. I will make sure I live in the boundaries when it is time for my children to go to high school Because I want them to attend Mountain Crest!!
Mountain Crest High was a clean and safe school. Students feel safe and cared for, teachers seem to realy devote all of their time and effort to the education of all their students. Student life is stress free and fun. Of the surrounding schools Mountain Crest is most often the top in test scores as well as sports. It is just a great well rounded school.
