The student body is very friendly and inclusive at West Jordan. Every one is always ready to help, especially during charity month. During recent times of tragedy, the students and teachers were able to reach out and help each other when needed. There is also a wide variety of groups and clubs to participate in, even if you're not an athlete (although we do have lots of sports teams too!) so there's always something for everyone! I feel this school does a great job at preparing us for college and for future careers, as well as motivating students the entire time! This school is also very diverse. Our student body is made up of many different races, cultures, religions, and orientations, but everybody still feels accepted and welcomed at WJHS. The students and administration work very hard to show that each and every individual person is a valuable and important part of our community, which explains why West Jordan has a loving, spunky spirit that can't be found at any other school.

The teachers are amazing! They really make you feel valued and important. There are plenty of opportunities for extra curriculars. The Music Program is the absolute best, the Choir director and Orchestra director are tow of the best people in the world. I would go to this school time and time again just for these programs.
High school is a wild ride and you never know what you’re going to get. Here, some teachers are very helpful, kind, fun, and great educators. Others are disorganized, arrogant, and incompetent. As overly peppy as they can get, I like the administration. They are always happy and energetic. The student body is very diverse. It is one of the things that stands out about West Jordan. Although not everyone gets along, most people don’t go out of their way to be rude. From my experience, everyone acts decently towards others and is fairly accepting. There are lots of clubs, sports, and other activities that give you opportunities to really get that high school experience. I love going to a sports game or seeing the school musical. In the end, those are the things we will remember about high school. Even though there are many cracks, chips, stains, and other imperfections at West Jordan, it still stands as a pretty good school. I wouldn’t change a thing.
