Layton High School Reviews

The academics at Layton High School are top notch. The teachers are all supportive and dedicated to their students, with clear qualifications to be teaching. In terms of extra curricular activities, there are many student made and run clubs that express passion from the student body. Including but not limited to debate, national honor society, robotics, e-sports, green club, and gay straight alliance; there are options for every one! Athletics at Layton High show team work and perseverance, with a supportive student body behind them. The only place Layton High School falls short is in administrative support. The admin continues to ignore reports of racism and sexism, instead favoring the accused over the accuser. This has created a separation between students and admin, with teachers stuck in the middle between defending their students or supporting their bosses.

I loved the faculty at Layton High, they made learning fun and created a safe learning environment! The administration was also really good as they were involved in the students lives and had fun alongside of us. Without the teachers and administrators the school wouldn’t be the same at all, they were amazing!
Layton offers a variety of classes to teach the foundation of various subjects and interests. There are a lot of caring teachers and staff to help guide and mentor each student and with all the many personalities you are likely to find one you vibe with and can reach you on a more personal level. My child has found a love in art and history due to the teachers who have been supportive and able to teach on a level that she is able to feel comfortable with and that has helped her a great deal!
