Hunter High School is a school located in West Valley City, Utah. A two story school where each department has a hall dedicated to a given subject. Very simple and easy to navigate halls with friendly staff and teachers that are more than willing to give a helping hand whenever possible. The lesson plans are very straightforward and almost predictable, which gives the student an advantage to prepare for future events. The courses a student can take last from one semester (two quarters) to the whole scholar year. If the student took a class that they have no interest in, for a short period of time, there is a window of an opportunity to change that class for something more desirable. From Home Remodeling, to advanced engineering, Hunter High School guarantees success to those students who put in the effort and demonstrate improvement and dedication. Anyone can become a proud Hunter High Wolverine.

My overall experience at that school wasn't the best but it also want the worst. I had access to great councilors and the social worker, Mrs. Alley, was a really big help as I was going through a lot of issues.
The teachers, for the most part were amazing and really cared about their students well being. There was only two that I had that just didn't work well with me and other students because they didn't care at all.
Other students there did give me a hard time and it was the worst for me my senior year when one teacher allowed his student to go on daily rampages about how the rest of us needed to work harder because our work wasn't even good enough to qualify as exceptional. But I did have amazing friends to help me out whenever I needed them.
The sports department was pretty alright. The coaches pushed us hard to get to where we were by the end and it was an amazing time playing with the other members. I loved it.
This school may not be the best but it is great!
The teachers and staff at Hunter High School have all helped me in various ways. During 11th and 12th grade I had one of the best teachers that I felt where preparing us for college. However, other teachers used teaching methods that weren't very efficient and felt like we where only teaching ourselves and not the teacher themselves. Overall it is a school with hidden treasures and you will find the few teachers that really are there for you in your education.
