Agree for the most part with "Amazing Teachers" review. Some of the gems include Mr. Berrong, Mr. Fish, Ms. Bateman, Ms. Smith (counselor) and Mr. Reed. Some of the teachers are clearly a waste of time and disappoint students and parents alike.
There are amazing teachers who care about the students as well as the pathetic teachers that are just tolerating their jobs. The administration works with parents to allow students the academic challenges they desire. For example, my 10th grader was given permission to enroll in the 11th grade AP Physics course with no problem. He has enrolled in 5 AP courses to date and so far has passed all of them -- due to the reviews and learning that went on in the classroom. For his senior year he will be doing concurrent enrollment with Weber State so he can take the classes he is interested in. You can find what you want at these schools -- including plenty of mediocrity.
Councelers weren't to good and it is really easy to cheat at that school for all students and you wonder why your school is only rated 5 when my new high school Del Oro is ranked 10 out of 10 . Sorry you guys don't cut it for me thats why as well why I am not there .
