I attended Lone Peak for my entire high school career and I would have to say it was pretty disappointing. If you click one tab over from the reviews and look at the Test Scores and Stats you will see what I mean. If you want your child to do well in anything math related (engineering, science, etc.),
... Read more Lone Peak (or Utah for that matter) is not recommended. I had straight A's throughout high school and then I entered my first year in college and got a C in my first and second math class. I had to spend hours teaching myself basic math because the program at Lone Peak was completely inadequate and way too easy! There were some awesome teachers though, especially the photography and physics teachers, they showed true interest in their student's education. Lastly, the academics were definitely placed well behind the athletics. The school had a "world class" weight-room but a completely understocked and underfunded library when I was there. For any student interested in doing a little research and study on their own, Lone Peak was not a very accommodating school. In summary, math was weak and liberal arts were strong. Many kids go to college with scholarships but lose them very fast! Read less

We couldn't be happier with this school. The academic standard is very high, and there is a spirit of value for all students that seems to be missing from many high schools. I have yet to encounter an unreasonable staff member. Everyone from teachers to administrators to students to other parents will

I feel my daughter is so very fortunate to get the many excellent teachers in her education, (like, English Shauna McPherson, Mathematics Vicki Lyons, Biology Robert Louder and History Scott Birrell) indeed a luxury at most public schools these days. There is an overwhelming sense of pride among the students, staff and parents. We are so fortunate to be a part of this fabulous school! Read less

We moved in from California this year and have been extremely impressed by this school. The majority of the teachers are quality educators and have tried hard to help our kids in all aspects of their education.

Lone Peak is a great school! I have been thoroughly impressed by most of the teachers.

I just had to write after reading some of the recent reviews about Lone Peak High School. It's interesting to me how, when a school gets some positive recognition, there are those who have to tear it down. I am writing to respond to them.

I believe that the expectations are higher at Lone Peak, the parent support better, teachers willing to work with parents, and the overall feeling at the school is positive. Yes, some kids, parents, teachers are difficult. This is true everywhere. But, at Lone Peak, each of my children had a great experience. They were all involved in different things - choir, drama, football, soccer, track, clubs, student council. Thanks, Lone Peak! You're great! Read less
