South Summit School District Reviews
Attending South Summit High School was a privilege for someone such as I. With the school being a smaller one compared to the many schools in Utah I found myself at home. My favorite part of attending high school here was the opportunity to be a member of the National FFA association. It was here that I learned how much I love agriculture and that it was the field of study I wanted to pursue. On top of this I learned a great deal of leadership, work ethic, and commitment from my involvement. South Summit High School supported the FFA program greatly. Thus, giving me opportunities to succeed and to look to forward to my bright future. I am grateful for every minute I spent in this school. The School is great, but it is presented with limits to the diversity of classes you can take. For example, I would have loved to take a French or Mandarin speaking class but because of the limited resources these opportunities were never available.
I liked the tight nit community that embodied South Summit High School. However, being in a small town, the high school did not have much diversity and often it felt as if more focus was given to sports and activities rather than academics and college readiness for students. I most definitely learned a lot and there were teachers who did change my life. For the most part, South Summit High School is an average small town school. Perhaps it will only live in my memory because it was my small town high school.
I had a good experience at this school, most of the teachers were excellent and wanted the best for their students. The principal and counselors were always ready to work with students to make sure the students got the most out of their education
