    Overall Experience: There is a large Mormon population at the school and it is very difficult to fit in if you are not a part of that religion. Some staff are not very helpful, and others are wonderful to be around. Overall it is a pretty good school.

    Overall Experience: I absolutely love most of the teachers I have had. They are very personable. I especially love my choir and art teachers. I would definitely choose this school again. The hardest part of it is the way the boundaries are split up. Almost all the school is from a different jr. High than I went to, so they already had their cliques.
