Salt Lake School District Reviews
Overall pretty great experience throughout my years in this district! I grew up going to this district and haven’t really known anything else, but from what I have experienced, it’s generally pretty good. I would like to see funding get distributed better in terms of how much money the athletic departments receive versus how much the arts get. I believe it would also be beneficial to have better screening for teachers because a lot of the high school grade teachers shouldn’t be hired if they don’t know how to teach or don’t understand how to interact with developing minds. We are the future, and need to be treated as such.
Iron county helps kids learn to get along well with each other, learn to apply themselves, grow as kids, open up to the people around them, most things a kid should know they learn in school. The only thing I think it needs to work on is how to get kids who have an IEP (for people who need help more one-on-one, learn a little slower) not feel like they are actually stupid. They are not! They just learn different in ways, and people need to accept that. They shouldn't be excluded from group activities with their classmates because they have to go to another class for an hour or so during school time or feel like they are being excluded from the other kids because they are separate for part of the class, it's harder to make friends that way. They should be treated the same as other kids and get the same privileges. It's hard to find a balance, but it needs to be done better.
I have been apart of the Salt Lake School District since elementary school. This district is diverse, safe and full of opportunities! What I most enjoy about this district is the diversity that comes with it, never have I ever had problems with discrimination because of my ethnicity, gender or age. They have also always kept me safe which is something I really appreciate. One thing I would like to see improve is school lunches, I know of many students who would just prefer not to eat lunch because the food is not appetizing. But overall I have been content with this district and when I do become successful, I know who to thank.
