West Jordan High School Reviews

This school is one of the only schools with top notch music programs. It includes a women's choir for sophomores, concert choir for juniors, and madrigals for seniors, as well as a separate concert and chamber orchestra. Not only that, but at this school they have "Sophomore House" and "Jag Academy." Sophomore House is for kids who have trouble with school. They're given help and geared more towards getting ready for taking honors classes. Jag Academy--which I am currently participating in--is geared more towards those kids who have already taken several honors classes, preparing them for AP and college. Those are some of the reasons I like this school!
Review West Jordan High School
I love West Jordan very much. The academics are very great because every student can get one on one help with the teachers. We have an Academic Intervention Period where we can get extra time to study and learn the things we are learning in class. This time is available for us to work on homework, projects, and study for tests. The teachers are great because they do whatever they can do to help the students succeed. And our principal Mr. Kochevar is very kind and engages with the students. The students are great as well. I feel like I fit in here, and cliches are not a problem in our school. The Jaguar pride is strong throughout everyone and I believe the majority of the students can agree that West Jordan is a great school. At West Jordan I feel at home, it's just a nice place to be. The events are great and everyone attends them. West Jordan is such a great school and there's no where else I'd rather be.
I love my school so much. They're amazing and helpful and well-managed. The only thing I'd say is that some of the bathroom doors are broken, but it's not a big deal. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!
