As I have spent four years at Alta high school I have learned a lot due to excellent teachers and hardworking peers. I have enjoyed my experience here, the students have a ton of school spirit! The teachers work with the students to keep them on track and the counselors are very involved.

Very good teachers, especially for AP and Concurrent Enrollment classes. The student body is nice, I personally have not seen bullying or anything of the sort. The advisory class is completely useless, but it does give thirty minutes to do homework if needed. I also liked the class options when enrolling into the new year, especially as a senior you have a lot of options to choose from, including CTEC and JATC which give college credit and hands on experience. All in all a very nice school in a nice neighborhood.
It was fantastic! I really struggled with health challenges my junior and senior year, and the help I received was unbelievable. Not only were most of my teachers exceptionally willing to assist and work with me, but the administration was as well.
