    Our son frequently mentions the many fights that are at Mount Ogden. The administrative staff needs to step up and have more control over the school behavior. Though there are always some great teachers in bad schools - the school work is below grade level and is shows on the below average overall test results. I would NOT recommend this school.

    My school is a great safe school with very caring teachers and staff. I would recommend this school to anyone in the Ogden area.

  • (2 years ago)

    Me being a student that went to MOJH and being in the hall ways I have rarely seen any fights. The swearing isn't even that bad and their is going to be that at every school. Some of the staff needs work but other then that most of the school and everything about it has always been really fun! Gangs are not as big of a problem during school time I have never encountered any gang members that were a "threat" to me during or after school.

    Why is this school's crosswalk the ONLY one in Ogden that still has it's crossing lights on when all other schools in Ogden District have their off....seems police love to sit around in this area and ticket people on busy Harrison Blvd....

    This school has many bad teachers who don't give students the proper help they need. Don't have your child attend this school if they are not of the Mormon religion for all my children have been ridiculed by students and teachers alike for there religion. The school is full of gang activity not much more needed to say about that. I would never recommend this school to anyone who does not like being preached to by the LDS church.

    best school ever. i don't even know what the person who gave 2 stars is talking about. none of that is true. mount ogden rocks!!

  • (7 years ago)

    i think mount ogden is one of the best schools in Utah. I love it's sports programs and it's enriched. It really challenges and takes students to the next level. I love MOJHS!!!!!!!

    This school has many problems. You see fights bad behavior and some teachers aren't even qualified to teach what they teach. The school has excellent sports though. The girls soccer team has never lost a game since the program started. The school could definitely use some work.

    I think Mount Ogden is the best school in the nation it has all sorts of great activeitives.

  • (8 years ago)

    This is a great school. Most of the faculty members are excellent. There is a strict dress code policy. The students are typical of middle school age and sometimes test thier limits in word and behavior. The counseling dept is lacking and understaffed. I love MOMS!

    'This school was not a good influence upon my daughter. The school has many fights and oftenly you see many kids swearing about the halls. I transfered my daughter into a diffrent school in order for her grades to go up. So I decided this is one of the worst school for any parent to send their child to unless they want them to learn gangly behaviors.

  • (10 years ago)

    Well this school has a lot of acedemic programs including Advanced math and and Enriched Program which will challenge students more. They also have a band and orchestra program that is excellent. The only downside to this school is that some of the students here swere alot and do not follow some school rules. Other then that it is an excellent school.
