I love NUAMES! It is a small school, and has such a wonderful environment. The teachers know each of their students names and their individual needs. The school is partnered with Weber State University, which provides a rigorous and academically challenging environment for all of the students. The kids that go there are there to learn and improves the quality of the classes. On top of that, NUAMES is a very diverse school, and one that has very little bullying, and a lot of acceptance and friendliness. I truly enjoyed my experience--it helped me grow not only academically but personally as well.

This highschool gives an early college experience. It is located on Weber State campus and students are able to apply for college sophomore year. During sophomore year, if you get into the program, you will turn into a part time highschool student so you can take college classes with WSU! Most students graduate with their diploma and their associates, and can walk at both graduations.
NUAMES is the number one school in the state of Utah, and for good reason! The teachers excel in each of their fields, and the students are all open-minded and everyone there is collectively doing their best. The only thing against us is the only "sports" we've got is our robotics team, which wins almost every year.
