Salt Lake School District Reviews

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.
I attend Innovations High in the Salt Lake District. It is great! Students are provided with mentors and tutors. All the staff and faculty are very kind and understanding. I am a CE student and the Salt Lake District is a great support in my finances(textbooks ,materials, tuition). I have felt motivated to transfer to the U of U once I graduate with my AS degree. I feel like the Salt Lake School District(SLSD) is great at ensuring the success of their students. Schools under the SLSD are all like mine. The SLSD reflects what true love for their students is. Their not all talk. They are more than that and continue being so.
