School atmosphere was tense, administration was changed in 2014 into nothing better than before. The new administrator/principal is intimidating. He is just the biggest and heaviest man from three big men, he used to be an English teacher but he seem to have a limited vocabulary. The administration rules the school like a prison. Teachers are treated poorly, especially the ones in the trailers with no supplies. Students body is divided into the faithful Mormons and Hispanics. Many of the secretaries working at the desk are rude and brisk. Teachers are trying but they do not have too much help being overwhelmed by the classes and conditions. . The administration is re-active instead of pro-active.

A few of the teachers that teach the higher level classes (honors, AP, or Dual Credit) are extremely dedicated to their work. They are motivated and care deeply about the value of their lessons and the quality of education they are providing to their students. However, some of the teachers that teach entry-level courses or basic, non-mandatory electives are the exact opposite. They are teaching just to be paid and do not care deeply about fulfilling their responsibilities as educators.

The variety of difficulty in classes is great. There are AP/Honors courses, regular classes, and lower/one-on-one assistance courses available. Teachers vary from 'passionate in their work' to 'just getting a pay check'. Only one or two teachers will impose their personal beliefs and ideals upon a class. Most are very good at keeping personal opinions out of the classroom.
