Provo City School District Reviews

This is a wonderful school district, my best years of compulsory education occurred here. Majority of the teachers that teach in this district teach because they want to, and they LOVE kids. The teachers here are kind, understanding, and want to be here. Although there are some teachers that aren't as kind, they still work hard alongside the student and help them grow. Most of the facilities are dated, but they have been treated well, so they almost feel as if they are new!

I moved to Provo City School District when I was entering 5th grade. I was new I didn't know anything about Provo. I had moved from Springville which isn't very far, but completely different. I remember my 5th grade teacher made me feel so welcome when I entered her class. The people were mostly welcoming and made me feel pretty good. I'm a Junior in high school now and I have had some good and bad experiences with my district. My brother had to be moved districts because they weren't treating him right, but I have been mostly fine. I have found some teachers who I absolutely adore and are like friends to me. And I try to support my school as much as I can.
I really do not feel like politics should be discussed in elementary school, when my daughter was in kindergarten they did a mock presidential election. My daughter was worried about some of her friends being deported. I also think that it just gives more reason for conflict and separation than there needs to be especially that young in school. I do not feel that threatening a parent with tardiness court when their child is in kindergarten is not the best way to go. While my daughter was on her Christmas break she got a new teacher, I was very surprised that parents were not notified by emailor something beforehand. I do feel the teachers try to do what they can for their students.
