What Is Different at Mountain High?Mountain High School is the alternative high school in Davis School District. Students come by referral from all over the district. Here at Mountain High, we offer the following programs to help students:
- Class periods are 45-90 minutes in length; generally there are fewer than 18 students per class.
- School starts at 8:20 a.m. and ends at 3:19 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
- Friday schedule is 8:20 a.m. to 12:11 p.m. We have a shortened day every Friday! On Friday, we have advisory and two periods of enrichment classes. Friday classes are required for students in day school.
Teacher Consultation is held every Friday from 12:15 to 1:00. Students who are missing work or have to redo assignments work with their teachers to be all caught up by the weekend.
- Available from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
- Students can improve their basic skills in the afternoon program. They work on the GradPoint curriculum under the direction of a certified teacher. GradPoint is now available at your home through the internet. Individualized help is also available in Satellite School.
A math teacher is also available Monday through Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. You can receive individual help from a great instructor.
Some students will be required to attend satellite school. These are students who will not be able to earn sufficient credit during day school to meet their graduation goals. UTA bus tokens are available for these students, if needed.
Parenting Students -
- Students meet with the independent study teacher at least 4 hours per week to go over the work they have done at home. This is a rigorous program. It is for students who like to work on their own, who have good basic skills and are motivated to sit for long periods of time, studying! The Independent Study lab is open during regular school hours and IS students are required to work in the lab weekly.
- Under the direction of the parenting instructor, students learn about pre-natal care, child development, and child care. They may apply for a place in the Child Development Center for their child during school hours.
- Many students take career-preparation programs offered across the street at DATC. Their tuition is covered by the district, and they earn elective credit toward a high school diploma as well as progressing toward an industry-recognized certificate or license.
- Students may earn credit for working outside of school time for a licensed business. To earn credit, students sign up for work-based learning with our CTE coordinator, Kristi Yamada.
