Northern Utah Academy for Math, Engineering & Science (NUAMES) Reviews

NUAMES is an amazingly academically-centered school. With it's conjunction to Weber State University, and qualified teachers and counselors, it is the best environment for your education. It helps you get ahead of other high school students and is the best high school in the state of Utah with a graduation rate of nearly 100%. The statistics are a mere representation however, because a NUAMES student gets to participate in college activities, sports and classes. You feel more mature as you are given a head start on life. My only critique is that while WSU provides many activities, NUAMES clubs are limited to robotics and other STEM centered clubs besides the gay straight alliance, model UN and hope squad. There are not many artistic opportunities outside of art classes which are required or graphic design. There are also no sports. There are however a lot of food options! The campus had cafes and bistros as well as convenience stores and vending machines EVERYWHERE.

Great School! I have attended all 3 years and find that I am extremely prepared for college. In fact, I will be graduating High School with my Associates Degree from Weber State. Classes are not too difficult, but they do require that you do the work and have great time management skills. Teachers are great--they understand how to prepare students for college and to encourage higher level thinking skills.
NUAMES is a wonderful school. The faculty and administration is dedicated to helping high school students succeed and do their best, not only in their high school classes, but in the college and concurrent enrollment studies as well. The teachers are caring and their first priority is toward their students. There are so many opportunities offered while partnering with a university, and having the early college experience prepared me very well for my later college experiences. The only downside is the absence of a music program and sports. However, it was very easy for me to participate in the local high school's programs without interfering with my NUAMES academics.
