Park City High School Ratings & Reviews
I agree with the last reviewer. Although we have had a few really great teachers in the 10 years we have lived in Park City with two children, most are dismissive of parental concerns and don't seem to care about the children. It would be SO great to have other local options for high school education!!!
Asking for help at this school can actually prove counterproductive in getting a student's needs met. The teachers are generally unwilling (or unable) to adapt their teaching interventions for individual needs of a student. Requests for help or for appropriate accommodations are met with a reactive, defensive stance. Don't be fooled by high test scores for the district. These scores are not due to anything the school system accomplishes; they reflect the inherent intellectual and emotional assets within the wealthy, successful, competitive families which make up the Park City community. Socially, this school is a difficult place for most kids to navigate. Intense and sometimes antagonistic cliques are quite real here. Unfortunately, there are no local private school options so the school system has little pressure to change or adapt.
I really like Park City High School. Pros are; easy going atmosphere, wide variety of courses, the school started rebuilding in 2006 (so all new school) and dedication by students to academics, music, community, and athletics is commendable. Cons are; half the teachers are great, half are just not good at what they do, policies are ridiculous at times, the Christmas break is about 10 days, and the school food is simply unhealthy (when I must eat it I usually have a PBnJ). Bottom line though is that I am comfortable being here and confident that if I work hard and choose the right courses I will be able to get into my school of choice. Just recently friends of mine have been accepted to Dartmouth and Stanford. PCHS was rated in the 150 top HS schools in the US by Newsweek, and the best HS in state.
