Box Elder has always served the needs of my children. I have had 4 children graduate from Box Elder 3 have gone on and graduated from college. One a dentist, another is getting ready to take his LSAT, and the other is a program analyst. The last one of the four is gainfully employed and is also a volunteer firefighter and an EMT instructor, so all 4 have benefited from a good education. I have two children remaining at Box Elder and they have enjoyed their experiences, as well as gaining the type of education that will enable them to have a successful college experience.

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.
