School Reviews

5  1/25/2011
The academic programs at Layton High are very enticing, I have been a student at Layton High for 2 and a half years now, and I am thoroughly pleased with my experience so far. I do not really participate in the extracurricular activities except for an occasional sport gathering. The facilities are nice and neat, the janitorial staff is usually very sincere in their work. I happen to work in the office as an office aide, and I have noticed that not as many teachers show up to check up on their students. I realize that they may be busy at work, but every once in a while, you need to check up on your student, it may help them out more than you think. :D
