The teacher absolute love the students and will do anything to see them succeed. They are among the best teachers in the nation and care about student individually. The Music programs are amazing. Mountain crest has an superb marching band and a state winning drum line, the theatrical program at mountain crest and south cache are nothing short of amazing, and willing to let any student participate. Now, Mustang athletics are known around the country, the 3 time state champion wrestling program is a top contender in every match it enters. The basketball program is the top in state as well as football, their new multi purpose playing field for football, soccer, track ect. is up there with most universities. There is also many many clubs on campus that allow every student to get involved no matter what their interest is. Athletic awards: Just walk in the school and you will see the rewards they have one, form the athletic school of the year (multiple times), the trophy cases are FULL of trophies. Mountain crest has won more state titles then any school in the area, and up there with the state. Facilities are some of the best in the state or even the country. Parent are strongly encouraged to get involved, and EVERY teacher is willing to work with the parents to get their children to succeed.
