Boyer Valley Middle/High School Reviews
At Boyer Valley High School, I loved that the classes were small because you get more interaction with other students and teachers. You develop a relationship with everyone which overall improved student interaction and achievement. Every student also had the opportunity to be involved in extracurricular activities. No matter what, you had the chance to participate which I feel makes a huge impact on the student's life because they feel like they are noticed which can go a long way in that specific age levels. It was overall a great experience.
Our athletics are great here at Boyer-Valley. The coaches make practices so that they are hard but at the same time, they get you in shape. Any student can go out and participate in sports unless they are ineligible. There are many ways that students can get involved no matter what it would be. Students can be involved in strength training or P.E. After school, students are involved in sports or there are students that work out. Right next to our weight room, there is a Wellness Center open to the public or anyone that has a key. If it's not school hours, just use your key and you can go work out. Even though we are a small school, the student section is always packed and there is no more room. Since the student section is filled, the school spirit is one that has increased over the years. When we hold games at home whether it be a football, basketball, and volleyball our stands are maxed out and filled that some of our fans have to sit on the other side of the gym. The school is always a positive environment and accept everyone.
The staff here at Boyer-Valley is very helpful and understanding in any situation. Our guidance counselor is my favorite teacher and the most helpful of all the teachers. Since he is the guidance counselor, he helps seniors get ready for college and with scholarships. He also helps us students with taking online classes and what classes would be best to take before we go to college. If you go in and as him a question, he usually has the answer. The worst policy that has now been changed is the attendance. The attendance policy was shortened because our new principal thought it was too high and students shouldn't be missing that much school. There is always that group of students who miss so much school because they don't want to come and attend or do not really care. There is nothing that we can do about it though because we can not force them to attend. Bullying at our school is a no tolerance zone. If you get caught, you get in trouble. It does not matter how it is done either. In my opinion, I think our dress code could be a little stricter because there are some students that wear inappropriate clothing but do not get yelled at but if some other students do they do not get yelled at to go home and change. If they were to do this, it should be equal and fair to all students , not just some students. These are just some little flaws that could be changed at our school.
