“Park City High School is an awesome school for academics and sports. The classes are made for students of all academic levels and include AP classes and courses offered by the University of Utah. Not only are the academics great, the sports are too. All most all of Park City High School’s sports teams are high performing. Sports including soccer, golf, football, and swimming are consistently at the top of their region and advance far into the playoffs and in some cases even the finals. Park City is an extremely safe high school. I can’t remember any instances where I felt threatened because the administration, staff, and resource officers go out of their way to protect the students. The school offers clubs ranging from Earth Club to Robotics. All students are provided with MacBook Air to help enhance their learning which I find helpful.
