4 of my 5 kids have gone here and I am very impressed. Stellar staff and just a really good overall feeling. Amazing PTA things like a school musical and lots of fun extra things for the kids to do. Awesome principal and really the best school my kids have been to, and we've been to 6 different schools so far.

Overall I am pleased with Holbrook. The principal, Mr. Denhalter is very involved with the students in positive ways. He and the teachers recognize good behavior with 'Blue Slips' and then those go into a drawing to go to lunch with the principal. My kids love it! Their teachers ( I have a 1st grader and a 3rd grader) are terrific, they have 3 recesses and a wonderful music program. I only wish the spectrum program was at this school. They do have a program for advanced kids, it is once a week for 45 minutes. At least it's something, and my 3rd grader really likes it. Most importantly, my kids love to go to school, and I think the atmosphere there is positive, welcoming and a fun place for them to be.

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.
