I attended Wasatch beginning July of 2010. First couple weeks were fine, nothing too exciting. On the third week, however, I was confronted by a student who accused me of submitting a complaint of their substance use on school grounds (which I had no knowledge of). I was beaten by two students for nothing. After fixing myself up afterwards, I went to my "dorm parent" to tell him about what had happened. He said he would take care of it and that was not something the school tolerated. I waited until the session had ended and nothing was done about it. As school went on, I went through more and more physical assault by students and the continuation of "the school does not tolerate that" with nothing being done. Eventually, I was expelled from the school because a student decided to get back at me by telling the dean that I had been involved with substances, which I had not. I have now gone through therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from my total of less than eight months at this school, and have happily recovered. I simply wanted to share my experience with anyone considering this school as I do not want these experiences to happen to future students. Thanks.

They don't offer a "one size fits all" education. I have never met a more caring staff.

Wasatch Academy is a superb educational institution as well as a wonderful environment for children's emotional and intellectual development. I have two children who attend this school. Last year was their first year. They loved it and I felt the level of education and attention to personal development is light years ahead of what they were receiving in the public school system. The additional ammenities of a great equestrian program and also a snowboard team with their own hill certainly is part of the attraction. We are lucky they are able to attend.

This is an amazing school with the most dedicated teachers. My son has ADD and was close to dropping out of school. He had attended public and private schools, but was failing and had lost all confidence in himself. It is a difficult decision to send a child to a boarding school, but in less than a year, he has turned things around. He is happy and proud of his success. I believe that this is a function of the small class sizes, but more importantly the dedicated and caring facility. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who has a child that is struggling with ADD and school.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
