Yampah Mountain School Reviews

Yampah helped me follow my dreams and figure out what I want to do in my life. The staff is beyond supportive and the opportunities presented to me have changed my life. The downside is the student culture seeming to get worse every year until the it's no longer about taking advantage of more freedom to graduate early and further education but about partying and doing as little work as possible. I hope to see the culture turn back around for students to get the best education they can.

My school is an alternative high school so its not big like a traditional school. Students make their own fun clubs like pottery, building a solar powered remote controlled car, and theater. I participate in building a remote controlled car. My school also do after school homework help and that is for the students who need extra help on a subject or missed a day in class and want to catch up that is the time to get homework you missed. In pottery students can make whatever they want. Some make cups others make jewelry or flowers. The solar powered remote controlled car which I am in we design a chassis using carbon fiber and we use little solar panels to power our car up. Theater is for students who like to act in plays. Once a year they rent a building with a stage in it and they invite anybody who wants to see a show that they do.
