About Lone Peak

Lone Peak opened its doors in the fall of 1997. At the opening ceremony, Governor Michael Leavitt officially opened the school by stating, "There is such a remarkable need for us to nurture citizens and good values. This can best be done in schools like this." He continued to explain that Lone Peak "must be a world class high school, and it will be." Since that opening day the goal to meet the need of nurturing citizens and good values has continued to be the central focus of our school. Students who attend Lone Peak High School come from the Alpine, Highland, and Cedar Hills communities. Most of our students come from families who have high academic standards and expectations.

The school offers a wide range of academic courses including honors, Advanced Placement, and concurrent enrollment. Lone Peak also offers a large variety of vocational, technology, and career oriented courses. We have partnerships with local colleges and universities as well as businesses so that students are able to participate in co-op classes and internships. Since 1997 the student body has increased from around 1,400 to 2,200 students.  The main focus of the school is still to nurture good citizens and instill good values as we educate our students to be the future leaders of the world.  We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and our school. We look forward to your involvement and will continue to improve and truly be a "World Class High School."
