I personally like City Academy because of: the one on one attention you have with every teacher, the opportunity to have Cambridge classes meaning the students has the ability to get college credits while being a high school student. The school has high expectations for all of the students and the teachers would love to help you to meet those expectations. One thing I would like to see change is the appreciation for the teachers from the people above them. Another thing would be better choices for lunches for the students.

I love City Academy because of their small class sizes. The teacher student ratio allows for more personal support from my teachers. Another reason is that there is a great amount of diversity at the school. I love interacting with other students that are different from me. I love their amazing theater program. This program has grown so much in the last two years. The last thing that makes City Academy stand out in the state of Utah is that it is the first high school in Utah to offer Cambridge awarded diplomas. The extra rigor of Cambridge A Level courses not only prepares you for college level coursework, but the focus of these classes is on learning, not just test scores.
The High-level teachers were the best I have ever had, with them giving you the time of day at a moments notice and helping with questions and problems you may have. The most notable thing about them was their ability to make you think, not just on what you were working on but on anything that you desired.
But the problem was communication and things like that, with them having such a desire for new students that they would would overlook problems in the school that would end up hurting them in the long. Along with that there was at times a lack of supplies and support from the administration, with the values that they "hold dear" hurting themselves and causing problems with teachers and students. Namely if something wasn't a problem they would make it one.
