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

History[edit]

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 Weber 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. 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.

T.H. Bell Junior High and South Ogden Junior High feed into Bonneville.
