Best school ever!!!! They have wonderful teachers and are always trying to encourage their students to do well on school!


Posted July 2, 2013

It's an alright school. The teachers are honestly careless and rather mean. The students are really judgmental! Basically if you aren't on a sports team, you're nothing, ignored and looked down upon. I wouldn't send my son or daughter here

This school's administration is horrible... Hick is and the vic principles are mean and controlling, Unwilling to help or work with you or the student. Only had a few teachers that actually cared for my child the rest acted like she was slow... (she is NOT) Just scared of the personality disorders that some of the teachers and other students had.... It does however have good sport programs but the down side is they Charge way the Heck to much... Also Tons of rich snobby kids!!!

No, this school is the worst. don't ever come here. All the students are judgemental and if you don't play sports you are just basically nothing. I would rather go to Herriman and I hate Herriman it sucks so bad, but really anything is better than Bingham. so, I advise you to chose anyother school. Bingham<Any other school in the state of Utah.

Best school ever! every person want to be at bingham and every person transfers or fantasizing about going to bingham. The best school in the whole world! Makes kids want to go to school and not just go home and cry.

Things are looking up for me, finally. This school gives me the resolve to "clean up my act," for I had always been an apathetic student until I came to Bingham High School. I had no care in the world to complete assignments and I hated school, despite my potential of near-prodigal intelligence. Then there's Bingham, where the teachers push and support you fully, there are NO bullies, and the teams are the greatest. I was not happy until I came to Bingham, and therefore can account all my happiness to Bingham High School. My only problem is... currently only 3 days of school has passed, and I do not have a fourth period. I did not set my own classes up, due to my late apathy, and the school people gave me two Language Arts 10 classes and absolutely no Science, regardless of the requirements for a Science class. I have stayed after school all three days for a total of 4 hours attempting to work with counselors to fix this and have only removed the second LA, and leaving my fourth period empty, with promises made to me that they "might" open up more Biology classes. I sure hope that it will all work out, because I need this. I am in Debate 1 and this could totally kill the good mood.

To much money and time focused on sports. To many politics in picking sport teams and not always picking the best players that could contribe after high school.

I have loved this school every since my first child went through it. Since then I have had 2 others go through, all three were actively involved and enjoyed every minute of their experience. One was on the girls basketball team, one was a madrigal and one was a Minerette. I am so pleased with how well they were taught not only in academic subjects, but in life lessons and such. My son is now going to college with only one goal, to return and teach at Bingham so that he can affect kids the way he has been so greatly affected. Go Miners!

I have taught and interacted with 3/4 of the students at this school and there truly are none finer in devotion to scholastics and extra-curriculuar activities. I am an alumnus of this school and have seen nothing but improvements while trusted faculty have been retained since my days as a student.
