This school is amazing! I like that the school is on a model that allows for extended reading/language arts time in the lower (1st and 2nd) grades, while offering really great specialty offerings (art, music, computers, PE, social studies and science) in 3rd-4th. The specialty teachers are top notch instructors. My kids got a great literacy foundation, then have gotten solid exposure to all of the specialties. And I can't say enough about the core teachers. The kids can participate in after school art, math lab, service club, and knowledge bowl among other things. There are always lots of parents in the school to help, and the kids seem to get along well. I only occasionally hear of incidents of bullying. I love this school.

We moved here recently and I have been nothing but pleased with this school. They have been very patient with every problem we're having with my child and have made sure he was receiving the special attention he needs. Because of the reading recovery program he's gone from struggling to soaring.

Very impressive. This school is very involved in the community and has numerous opportunities for parent/family involvement and communication. Our family has had positive experiences with the teachers we have worked with. As a parent, I have been very satisfied with the quality of education my family has received.

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.
