Provo High School is a great school. The area which most requires improvement is building renovation, and they are building a new school this year! The teachers are all friendly and willing to help, as are most of the other students that attend the school. Because of PHS, I will be graduating high school with almost all my requirements for a college bachelors degree already met. I would highly recommend this school!
Provo High has felt like home to me since Sophomore year! It didn't feel like home freshman year because I was a scared little girl trying to adjust to the change that high school brings to your life. But I have loved being involved in the band program at Provo. It has given me life long friends and many lessons that I can take and use in my life. Almost all of my teachers at Provo have really helped me learn and grow as a person. They seem to care about their students and truly love their job! I have really excelled at Provo and I hope I can do the same at Utah Valley University this next fall!
