Bonneville High School (Washington Terrace, Utah)


Bonneville High School (Washington Terrace, Utah)

Bonneville High School is a secondary high school in Washington Terrace, Utah.

History

Bonneville first opened its doors in the fall of 1960 to approximately 900 students, including freshmen. The school was built to address the overwhelming population growth (attributed to the post-war "baby boom") at the south end of the county.

The school was built at a large cost to the Weber County School District. Every effort was made to make Bonneville reflect the latest in technology and culture, including an in-house television station which still exists today, electronic language labs, and numerous art rooms. The building itself was designed with large, open spaces such as a central courtyard and smaller atriums spread throughout the campus.

As the area continued to grow, it became necessary to renovate the buildings to house a larger student population. Along with closing in the main courtyard and adding a new building behind the main structure, the freshman class was moved back into junior highs and middle schools. Several other additions and renovations have occurred since the 1970s.

chool Hymn

Words: Diane KarikkaMusic: Crawford Gates

In this our long and lovely valley,
'Neath the skies of blue;
Nestles our stately Alma Mater
So glorious to view.

"(Chorus)"
Lofty mountains reaering skyward
These inspire in us their will.
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater.
Noble Bonneville.

To all who come she offers knowledge,
Fiends and memories too
For this we proudly sing her praises
To Bonneville be true.

"(Repeat Chorus)"
Beneath the shoreline of lake Bonneville
May our school 'er stand,
A monument to truth and freedom,
In this our cherished land.

"(Repeat Chorus)"
