Concurrent Enrollment Chemistry at SFHS

Spanish Fork High School has a new reputation. Spanish Fork High School has
the highest number of students in concurrent enrollment for fall semester in Nebo School District and Distance Learning classes. SFHS has 487 students signed up in concurrent enrollment;that's 122 more than the second highest enrollment number. Spanish Fork High School students know how take advantage of educational opportunities. Concurrent enrollment is the process where students take a collage level class, in high school, and get both high
school and Utah Valley University credit. "It's so much easier to get collage credit in high school, than in collage, so students should take advantage of
this opportunity," says Whitney Hansen, a senior at SFHS who is currently
in multiple concurrent enrollment classes. "Concurrent enrollment has
helped me realize how much college is going to affect my life, it
prepares me for collage, and it also saves a lot of money," says Sydney
Gunter, a junior from SFHS enrolled in concurrent enrollment. "It's
muy bueno!" say Chris Whitehead and Todd Griffiths, who are currently
in the concurrent enrollment Spanish class at SFHS. So it's proven
that high school students love concurrent enrollment, for both the leg
up in college, and also the excellent experiences it offers.
