This school is great for those who are considered popular, outgoing, selfish, and maybe even bullies. I attended for my first year of junior high and was bullied to the point where I became suicidal. Even my 'friends' didn't have time to be around me because there was so much going on.

It provides an excellent learning place and experience, and has a warm environment. You can ask for help and receive it, and I love they way their system works!

This is an excellent school. They have fantastic staff members, and fantastic students. Their student body officers will help you in any way that they can. Their sports team are also amazing. Right now the volleyball team is undefeated. Last year they won district champions. I would suggest this school to anyone.

kaysville jr high has everything a student in the school would need. the sports are amazing, and kaysville won district state champs three times last year. there are many acedemic programs, including debat, theater, social dance, yearbook, newspaper, and much more to offer its students. all of the kids there get all the help they need. i cant think of one thing that is bad about the school. well, the lockers could be a little easyer to open, but other than that, its a great school. the kids there are all nice. i was new last year, and everybody was really nice.

Did not like this school. A few teachers treated me as if I was just another student. Never received encouragement from teachers or counselors.

This is a good school. The math department is strong and teachers, for the most part, are positive. The kids are friendly, inclusive, and motivated to learn. They do not participate in Science Olympiad - a disappointment but they have a wonderful National Academic League (and advisor).

Kaysville Junior High School is the best junior high in the Davis district! We have outstanding teachers! KJH offers multiple activities in sports, languages, music, and much more.The PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) adult board keeps the school fun and educational. Keep up the great job KJH administration and staff!

While the teachers and administators seem to be doing a good job, you would only know that if you can get past the people who work in the office. They are notorious for their rudeness, lack of professionalism and thinly-veiled contempt for anyone who dares interrupt their day. I've stood five feet from them, waiting to be addressed, for up to five minutes. My suggestion would be that they and their boss realize that parents are, in essence, their clientele--not just distractions to be suffered through.

Parent involvement with the teachers and administration makes this a very good school.
