Academics are good, its very safe, but the students are very closed-minded and prejuduced in general. I didn't enjoy my time there.

We moved from florida where my kids were straight A and A/B students. They each got their first 'D's at Park City. I am not sure what that was all about. As for social issues in high school - that is what high school is all about - you aren't going to avoid that anywhere. What you should worry about is whether or not the school is a threatening environment. Park City High School is very safe. As for economic status - having from from the very class conscious south - my children noted how refreshing it was that the students they became friends with lived in 10 million dollar homes as well as 300K condos with mult-generations living in them.

I agree with the last reviewer. Although we have had a few really great teachers in the 10 years we have lived in Park City with two children, most are dismissive of parental concerns and don't seem to care about the children. It would be SO great to have other local options for high school education!!!

Asking for help at this school can actually prove counterproductive in getting a student's needs met. The teachers are generally unwilling (or unable) to adapt their teaching interventions for individual needs of a student. Requests for help or for appropriate accommodations are met with a reactive, defensive stance. Don't be fooled by high test scores for the district. These scores are not due to anything the school system accomplishes; they reflect the inherent intellectual and emotional assets within the wealthy, successful, competitive families which make up the Park City community. Socially, this school is a difficult place for most kids to navigate. Intense and sometimes antagonistic cliques are quite real here. Unfortunately, there are no local private school options so the school system has little pressure to change or adapt.

The teachers lack any drive or motivation to help struggling students. It seems as though they feel that the strong students need more assistance than others

I really like Park City High School. Pros are; easy going atmosphere, wide variety of courses, the school started rebuilding in 2006 (so all new school) and dedication by students to academics, music, community, and athletics is commendable. Cons are; half the teachers are great, half are just not good at what they do, policies are ridiculous at times, the Christmas break is about 10 days, and the school food is simply unhealthy (when I must eat it I usually have a PBnJ). Bottom line though is that I am comfortable being here and confident that if I work hard and choose the right courses I will be able to get into my school of choice. Just recently friends of mine have been accepted to Dartmouth and Stanford. PCHS was rated in the 150 top HS schools in the US by Newsweek, and the best HS in state.
