The faculty and staff were very good, you could tell they cared about their students and making sure they provided a good foundation for them. There weren't many classes that really prepared you for life after high school, but they were very committed to the students' success and well being. The only real complaint I have is the issue with bullying between students and how it was handled. I never got "justice" for anything that was done to me, they got away with everything. There must be some way to encourage a positive environment between students, enforce it, and have the students graduate/succeed.

I recently graduated from Kearns high school. I really didn’t like it till my senior year when I started to get involved in the community but I made sure my senior year was own for the memories. I enjoyed everything that was involved with kearns high. The people and staff are amazing. I really am sad that I graduate. I should have gotten involved sooner because I met a lot of amazing students & staff there. I wouldn’t change anything! It’s beyond amazing there.
I love this school. The diversity is outstanding, especially for Utah, and the community here is great. School spirit is outstanding and there are many opportunities for clubs and electives, all of which are active with fun people. The leaders of the school clearly care about the students going there and the layout of the school is beautiful and easy to navigate without any overcrowding, except when in the lunch lines.
