    "Parowan High School provides an atmosphere for learning. The teachers care about their students and go the extra mile to ensure that all students are given ample opportunity to learn and grow. Because the enrollment at PHS is smaller than average, each student has a myriad of opportunities to shine, both in the classroom and in extra curricular activities. Unfortunately, the smaller numbers also make it difficult for PHS to secure resources to fund increasingly important classes and curriculum such as, for example, math, physics, chemistry, and other classes that constitute the foundation for the hard sciences. (Call the Iron County School Board to ask questions about the lack of critical funding for these classes at PHS). Nevertheless, for a small rural school, PHS is full of intelligent, articulate, outgoing, and quality students that are provided with a platform to succeed in life, right there in Parowan, UT. The faculty at PHS deserves a giant THANK YOU!"

    "I really like Parowan High! Every one there is very nice, and all of the teachers understand you and meet to your needs. It's not like you here about other schools where all of the older kids hate you and treat you like dirt. You get along with everybody!!"

    "Parowan is a great school for teens that need a mor eone on one basis with teachers. Teachers, students, and faculty know you by name and truly care about you. The rules are not enforced with every student, however, there is no cafeteria (however students can leave campus to eat or eat at the elemntary school, a short block away), and budget funds are low. I graduate in 2011 and I love the school."

    "I graduated from Parowan High School in 2000. I treasure the experiences I had at Parowan High. My family moved to Parowan when I was ten years old. I did not find it difficult to make friends or be accepted. People in Parowan are extremely friendly. Because Parowan is such a small school, the students are provided with many opportunities that they would not have otherwise. The teachers are able to provide one-on-one support, athletic teams are available to nearly anyone who wishes to participate and student leadership positions are attainable. Patriotism and traditions are deeply rooted in Parowan High School. There, I gained a sense of who I am as an American and as a citizen. Academic achievement is important to the teachers and administrators of Parowan High School as well. I would recommend Parowan High to anyone who wants a great education and wonderful opportunities."

    "I am a former student of Parowan High School and a graduate in 2004. The teachers of Parowan High School are great! They focus on each and every student, and care deeply for the students and the school. And although most of the teachers are either husband and wife, or any other relation, it unites the school even more. If you choose to live in a small town, then you must also accept a small school. The number for sports activities and academic activities may be smaller than most 2A schools, but that does not mean that this school does not have the heart. I highly recommend this school for any student."
