I love Provo High School! I am a Honors, AP and CC student, and I find the teachers and faculty so supportive of me! I am also a varsity athlete, in Cross Country and Track, and the team and coaches are absolutely wonderful. We have so many different sports, some of which are the best in the state. I am a part of 6 different academic clubs, and there are so many amazing ones to pick from! The teachers are so wonderful and are so willing to help and support their students. The Faculty is amazing, running the school so well, it is always clean and orderly every day before we arrive, and the amazing people at the main office are always ready to greet you with a smile and ready to help you with whatever you need. Provo High is Great!

Provo high is the friendliest and most welcoming school you can attend. Everyone cares. It is also has the most opportunities for involvement. Even if you think you don’t belong I guarantee there is a club or sport or activity for you. The teachers are nice and the school is beautiful and fun. If you choose to move to Provo, Utah I’d recommend attending price high school. Go bulldogs!
I loved that we have such amazing teachers and staff and is actually invested on their student’s learning rather than their letter grade. They create a safe environment where growth can happen.
Something that I’d like to change though, is the trackers capabilities to handle students, some of them are sort of judgmental and choleric. Also the time given between classes this year, 2020-2021, is really short and doesn’t give us enough time to go to the bathroom or our lockers and be on time.
