My Experience at Wasatch High School was excellent. I was able to get involved in many opportunities that allowed me to serve and grow as an individual. Activities such as participating with the basketball team, competing with the Future Business Leaders of America, and leading and inspiring my fellow students through the student government executive council gave me many great chances to get outside my comfort zone and grow in my social skills and education. My education was great! My teachers and most of the faculty had great intentions in really having a desire for our success. They pushed us as students to plan and prepare for the future. They taught out of a love for teaching. I felt as though I could trust any one of my many instructors with things in, and out of the classroom. I felt a spirit of unity throughout the student body, and I feel like the faculty encouraged that.

There is a definite emphasis on sports, especially wrestling. Other areas like choir, theatre, and orchestra aren't as much supported by everyone as much athletics.
Most teachers are excellent and are very willing to help you learn! There are a few difficult and not-so-pleasant teachers to work with, but you just have to learn to live with it. Otherwise, teachers are great!
The students are very kind, accepting, and fun. There are still some form of cliques here, especially with diverse groups but it's not the typical mean girl sort of thing here. Everyone is friendly, and you can feel comfortable talking to almost anyone here.
For college readiness, take lots of ap and concurrent enrollment courses.
Counselors are great for the most part but there are a few who will try to badger you into what they think is your next courseload.
Food is improving but lacks diversity.
I am going to be a senior this year and all 3 years so far have been so good. All the teachers are great and do everything they can for you to pass. I really like how they push you to stay involved with activities, sports, leadership or any kind of clubs. All of the assemblies are always so well planned out and entertaining! They give away big prizes at the end of the year or sometimes during like a car, television, or Xbox which always pushes kids to earn the cards to be entered into those drawings.
