    Overall Experience: I really think that overall, Lone Peak is an amazing school. The staff and student body are amazing! They try very hard to reach out to the students and are good examples to the rest of the students. It is a very competitive school compared to most. It's sometimes hard to get good grades in the classes but I view it as they are trying to challenge you to do your very best to prepare you for universities and colleges. They have extremely good teachers that often stay at the school(before and after) to help other students understand their classwork better. They have a very friendly staff. Not only that but extra curricular activities such as sports and the fine arts and many others are HUGE in this school. They get high ratings from across the nation and are very active in many tournaments and competitions, through regional, state, and even national levels.

    Overall Experience: I have taken/am taking many (10) AP classes, so it is expected that I have had great teachers. However, I have friends who are not crazy like I am, and have not taken AP classes. From both our perspectives combined, almost all teachers are amazing. Every department has a teacher or two that is not good, but for the most part every teacher is adept, and for every bad teacher there is another amazing teacher. Really though, LP has some teachers that will change your life.

    Overall Experience: I love Lone Peak. It was such a fun school to go to and the people are great there as well. There are always little things that can be improved but it's high school and mostly the drama comes from other students. Going here was a great learning experience for me and I absolutely love the teachers and the classes. It's such a fun environment to learn and to progress.

    Overall Experience: This School is unique because, for being a public school, the dedication teachers, students, parents, and coaches all give is incredible. People are really unified and supportive. Some can be clique, but If you are looking for a challenging but supportive environment, this school is perfect. High moral standards

    Overall Experience: I loved this school. However it was in a very wealthy community and so that created major cliques and political issues when it came to extracurricular activities
