    Educational Outcomes: After graduation, I attended Brigham Young University in Provo. During my freshman year, I came to the conclusion that Lone Peak HS is a great school in terms of the quality of students and faculty, however, it does not push students enough to prepare them for the "real world." The curriculum is not difficult enough to compare to college courses. I drew on other experiences as reference points to help me get through any academic difficulties of my freshman year.

    Overall Experience: Overall it is a great school to attend. The sporting events are always packed with students which is really fun. There are a LOT of Mormons at this school and so it could use some diversity, both culturally and ethnically. But that also means that there are a lot of genuinely good students that come from good, religious homes.

    Food: Its good, not exceptionally great though. Menus could be a little more diverse but most kids leave school grounds for lunch anyway.

    Administration & Policies: I think the policies are well done and well enforced. One thing that is complained about a lot is the dress code. It is a little extreme and follows cultural rules by being traditional, but overall it is a positive addition to the school.

    Sports & Fitness: Athletics are very important at this school to the students, administration and parents. Everyone in town goes to the football and basketball games. The school keeps the facilities upgraded.
