I like the overall atmosphere you feel when you walk through the front doors. I feel safe in my attendance as well. The teachers do their best to make sure their students achieve their goals. Although we are going under construction at the moment, I like the new ideas and renovations to help make our school a better place! The rules aren't too strict but aren't too loose at the same time. I wish we had a longer lunch than 30 minutes. It would be nice to know that you don't have to speed to make it to your final class on time and chow down your food in a couple minutes. I'm proud to say I got Woods Cross High School though. Im so lucky to be a wildcat and I am excited for this upcoming school year!

I moved to this school midway through my junior year. What I discovered is that this school does not encourage kindness among students. They are cliquey and are encouraged to be so. The choir program is spectacular, as are the teachers, but there is a woeful lack of funding for anything besides sports, which lack something to be desired. All of the teachers I've had have been top-notch, as have the administrators. The facility itself is cold and drafty, requiring students to wear coats in class! What I suggest for this school is to put more funding into the arts programs and to fix the heating.
I've had a good experience at Woods Cross High School over all but feel that its typical and not above average. The high school itself isn't that diverse and has a stricter demographic of students. It can be hard to 'fit in' within the popular culture of the high school. I have been afforded many opportunities to take advanced classes and get prepared for college which is nice. Academically its up to the students what they get out of school but socially for me at least it was a little rough. There are many clubs but there's a feeling of exclusivity within some of them. As an LGBT student it would've been nice to see more acceptance or diversity. Its one step at a time though, and I think Woods Cross is leaps above some schools but like one of my teachers said "there is always took for improvement".
