Layton High School

440 Wasatch Drive
Layton, UT 84041


Layton High School was built on the site of Verdland Park. Verdland Park was a 1943 housing development constructed in Layton to provide housing for civilian workers at Hill Field Air Base and the Naval Supply Depot in Clearfield during World War II. Many prominent citizens of the Layton area lived at the future site of Layton High. Among them were the Price family (who’s home was located where the new North Wing of the School now rests) and Lynn Thorne who coached at Clearfield High and Syracuse Junior. Verdland Park was purchased from the Federal Government in 1957 by Layton City and demolished to make way for the high school, the athletic fields, and Layton City Park.

Prior to Layton’s first academic year, 1966-67, the high school students of the area attended Davis High School in Kaysville. Layton High began with freshmen and sophomores from Central Davis Junior High with the sophomore 10th graders moving to Davis High for the 1967-68 school year and the freshmen becoming the destined first graduates of Layton High in 1970. Davis High and Layton High had an amiable quasi sibling relationship in those first few years, except on the athletic fields in the heat of competition.
