I strongly dislike the way the students do whatever they want with little to no consequence. The faculty don't care and I don't even know why I pay for my kids to eat lunch. Both of my children come home hungry most days out of the week because the food wasn't edible. There is more drama at this school than on reality television.

This school was not the best match for my child who struggles to work when others are disruptive. My child often had to bring work home from classes that had less behavior management. The teachers let my child make up the work for full credit. This school is a better match for my other child who can still concentrate if someone is calling out. Both my children are identified gifted, but my younger child doesn't need a quiet environment to work. My younger child is also the type to stand up to bullies, whereas my older child likes to lay low and focus on academics. There are many positive aspects of this school. I pulled one child out and the other is staying in. Your child may have a great experience here. It depends on their personality and what friend group they meet up with.

We are running away and never looking back. If your child utilizes a school counselor at NLJH, good luck. My son is a gifted student who was absolutely swallowed alive by this environment. NLJH is absent for day to day issues yet has no problem overstepping their bounds and placing phone calls to authorities. I’ve been a parent for 17 years and in all my days have never been so horrified at what this place calls “looking out”. It’s disgusting. You MUST be in contact with the PARENTS as well if you truly feel a child is at risk. This experience at NLJH has been the most astonishing view of adult irresponsibility I have ever witnessed. I’ve got both middle fingers up for the counselor, my god what a flipping disaster.

Bullying is still an issue, two bullies in one year and a third the following year (2017). Teachers will hear out the students however it seems like its more of a three strikes your out instead of a zero tolerance leaving it up to the parents to take control of the security of our kids. Additionally the teachers seem to like to wait till the last minute to update grades so for half a semester it looks like a student is passing before indications begin to crop up to the opposite and vice versa. Home schooling is what alot of people on the base (Hill AFB) are talking about and moving too and in this case I may be a sheep and follow suit.

I am a sophomore right now and my experiences at this school were great! 7th grade was definitely a harder year but my 8th and 9th grade years were great because they got rid of the old administration and the uniforms. There were definitely teachers that students didn't like but honestly, what school doesn't have those kind of teachers? The new administration made a huge difference. I only had them my 9th grade year but by that time, they had already made a huge difference. Everyone knows that North Layton is definitely not the nicest school around, but the administration did many things to improve it just by some very small renovations. I could tell that their main focus throughout that year was to encourage good grades. They rewarded students with no F's and even took those with a GPA higher than a 2.0 to a movie! The new administration was very caring and if you had a problem with one of the teachers or another student, they would do everything they could to help you out. You can tell that they try to get to know each student. For example, throughout lunch, they would sometimes walk around in the commons and talk to some of the groups of students. They would laugh with you and talk to you and really show you that they care. I felt like I mattered to them in my 9th grade year. They really helped me make my last year of Jr. High memorable (in a good way.)
