    I graduated from Hunter High in 2006 and i must say that i had the time of my life going to Hunter High. The teachers are smart and are good at what they do. Academics are AWESOME as well. Too bad everyone like Hunter so much that there are students on the floor this year!

    After such a negative experience with Hunter Junior High I was prepared to hate Hunter High School as well. Much to my surprise it's actually been a good experience. The staff and teachers are responsive to parents questions and concerns. They care about the students and give them the support and help they need. Unfortunately the school is currently very over crowded and some students have been forced to sit on the floor this year but I don't blame the school for that.

    The general student body at this school is just like any other but Hunter has one thing going for it-- the IB program! It is a very prestigious program and the students involved in it are intelligent committed and open minded. They raise the general IQ and atmosphere of the school! I recommend Hunter for that reason.

    Hunter High is one of four school in Utah that offer the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme. It would not be a mistake to choose this school only for its IB programme.

    Hunter High's performing arts classes are the top in the district. They also offer more college classes (AP and Concurrent Enrollment) than nearly any school in the district. Any student aiming for success would find themselves doing remarkably well at this school. I would recommend this high school to anyone!

    This is the best school ever! And the coach for the football team (coach wilken) rocks!

    Hunter High School has some of the best teachers and an especially awesome foods program. The choral and drama programs are also quite excellent. Hunter also has a multitude of other programs not available at other schools. I was very impressed.
