My experience in Hunter High School has been rather positive. The school prides itself in its huge diversity, and that is definitely one of its strengths! Hunter High has people from all sorts of income levels, races, religions, sexualities, etc., and this diversity is what encourages its students to stick together no matter the differences. I find that the teachers are very willing to help out its students, and they often make sure to keep the learning environment positive and work vigorously to ensure the success of their students.
My only gripe with the school is the state of the equipment. We've got quite a few issues with our technology. Some of our equipment is incredibly outdated, and others are just falling apart. This issue persists in multiple departments, but it's slowly being worked on.
Review Hunter High School
Hunter High School is one of the most diverse high schools in the state of Utah. Students of all nationality and ethnicity attend. Most of the teachers are very good, especially for a school located on the less affluent west side of the Salt Lake valley. The sports teams at Hunter are above average. Some teams, like wrestling or girls volleyball, do very well. The art and music departments suffer from lack of funding. In general, Hunter High, as a school on the west side, gets less funding than other schools located to the east (even in the same district). While the school is a pretty good learning environment, better funded and managed schools exist within the Granite School District.
My experience at Hunter High School, was unforgettable. I played soccer all three years, stayed in tune with school activities, and made sure my grades stayed up. Most of my teachers made my high school experience fun.
My senior year was different for most, we received 13 relos in our student parking, and the population of our school expanded by almost 700. If I could say anything about that, the high school as it is, is to small for that many students and it made class sizes bigger and a harder learning/teaching environment for students and teachers. I know a lot of my graduating class graduated early for that reason.
