Wasatch High School Reviews

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.
Review Your School
The experience I had at Wasatch high school was one that makes me miss my high school days. It's an overall great school! All the teachers there are not only willing to help you learn, but are willing to be your friend. I received much personal help from teachers when I needed extra help learning. The councilors show you every window possible to create the best future for yourself. School spirit in activities is excelent, making all the activities super fun and enjoyable. There's a wide variety of classes reaching out to all students interests. Overall it is a great high school to attend, I highly recommend it.
The teachers at my school are very knowledgeable. They are always trying to engage the students and convince them to love the subject they are teaching. Because of their example, they have helped kids work harder and be more excited about school. They also are willing to sacrifice their time to help others. Always. Some will stay in their classrooms at lunch to help students with their work and to mentor them if the need comes up. They even stay after school to serve the students even though they have families at home! Our teachers are very involved in clubs and are always willing to help any student excel.
