Terrible school. The teachers don't care about you at all. I remember walking around to my teachers before I transferred to a different school and it was the most forced "Good luck" I have ever heard.

This school is amazing. Has good teachers, students, administration. Has no cliks everyone is friends. Has a great basketball program. It has been a top 5 team in the state scince the late 80s. Football program has great atheletes but they don't live up to their potential. A good part of that is the coach. Some of it is stuck up players who think they wee NFL material and really are not even d2 college material. Most students don't like the coach so they don't play. With a different coach who most people like, we would be a a top ten team. With the exception if soccer we have good atheletic programs

Leaving this school has helped me to realize how amazing it is. There is a good balance and diversity among the students. Creativity and imagination thrives in its enviornment. It offers so much for so little. I'm just disappointed that it is one of the most underrated schools in utah. Teachers from West Jordan are hard to come by because they are so great...

West Jordan is truy a great school, in a great community. The students are unlike any I've ever worked with before. The majority of students are respectful, and want to achieve and excell in what they are doing. It has been said that West Jordan High is the best kept secret in the Salt Lake valley, and it is true.

West Jordan is a really good school that is adding more and more things every day to enhance the experience. I Just graduated from this school and I defiantly feel ready to take on the world. Everyone should consider going to this school.
