Woods Cross High School Ratings & Reviews
As a student, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Woods Cross. Well-known for their academic excellence, their other accolades are nothing to scoff at either. As always, the music program goes above and beyond expectations, usually sweeping the board in state competitions. WX claims a sizable agriculture department, something that nearby high schools can't boast of. Honors and AP enrollment has reached nearly 50% of the students. Athletics have really picked up in the last couple of years. Extracurricular activities, including service opportunities are stressed. What I personally loved the most about Woods Cross were the feelings of unity, school spirit, and inclusion. Despite the wide range of economic backgrounds, it felt as if we were all treated the same, as respectable students of WX High School. It is a very disciplinary school, but still more lax than some junior highs I attended. After having also attended Bountiful High for a semester, I can attest to the superior friendliness and acceptance that the student body of WX tended to show. My only complaint would be about the smaller size of the building and the outdated style, two things Bountiful holds over Woods Cross.
Although this is a great school for music, band, and orchestra, it falls short in many other areas. It does not have structure. We lived in Murray, Utah for 18 years before moving to North Salt Lake and having two of our kids attend Woods Cross. I suppose that if your student is a good student, they will excel anywhere. But, if they have a small amount of trouble and need help with anything, don't plan on getting help from the teachers at this school! Also, the discipline is WAY TOO STRICT for such small little things - i.e., like wearing a hat AFTER school hours! I think administration needs to concentrate on structure and making sure that the kids are understanding the subjects rather than bullying the students. That's right, teachers and administration BULLY the students! Also, I don't understand why the PTA doesn't have parents get more involved in the day to day association with teachers and students.
A very Great and fun school the band and choir is amazing and the sports are very fun to be a part of, also number 8 on the utah school list by ksl
Sounds like some parents here aren't taking accountability for their students actions. My kids did fine. They worked hard, were pushed by me to succeed, and did well at this school. Don't blame the teachers and school for your kid failing, being unfocused, not having time for academics. Blame yourself, and your kid. I
This school allows students to slip through the cracks. If your child has any kind of learning issues DO NOT SEND THEM TO THIS SCHOOL. Most of the teachers and staff do not follow the district accomodation plans for students with disabilities. One of the teachers actually told me - "well who doesn't have learning disabilities"! If only I could go back in time and send my student to a school that cares.
