I love this school! The teachers are the best around. The principal takes the time to get to know each student individually. I love the level of learning. My children feel challenged with the ciriculum and they feel such accomplishment when they succeed. The teachers know how to explain things so they are easy to understand. I love participating at the school and have helped in plays.

The principal and staff at this school are fabulous. They are all wonderful to work with and are truly concerned about our childs educational experience. They offer a music program, science fairs, field trips, plays, and much more. The library is great. The level of parent involvement is good but could improve. You could not ask for a better school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Utah used the Utah Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 2 through 11 in Language Arts, in grades 2 through 8 in Math, in grades 4 through 8 in Science and upon completion of certain courses in grades 8 through 11. The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
