    Overall Experience: This school is one of the only schools with top notch music programs. It includes a women's choir for sophomores, concert choir for juniors, and madrigals for seniors, as well as a separate concert and chamber orchestra. Not only that, but at this school they have "Sophomore House" and "Jag Academy." Sophomore House is for kids who have trouble with school. They're given help and geared more towards getting ready for taking honors classes. Jag Academy--which I am currently participating in--is geared more towards those kids who have already taken several honors classes, preparing them for AP and college. Those are some of the reasons I like this school!

    Overall Experience: The life experiences I have gained here are priceless. There are so many great ways to get involved. The clubs, sports, etc. are interesting and fun. They have helped me enjoy my high school experience more than I thought I would. The energy at West Jordan is electric and I love it.

    Overall Experience: I loved everything about high school. It was absolutely some of the best years of my life. West Jordan High School was very good at not being cliquey. It was full of many different types of students, but somehow we were all friends. It was amazing.

    Overall Experience: I love my school and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. I love all the school spirit. It's one of the best schools in the district. My favorite experience was definitely school dances and football games. I loved playing soccer for the high school. This school is unique because it is a very diverse school but it's great how everyone can get along. If I would do it all over again I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. The teachers are also very great. We have amazing teachers that will give you all there attention if you ask for it. They will find anyway to help you. They will also stay longer than they have too for you to get the help they need. I have even had teachers come in when there is no school to help me. I've grown to love this school so much.
