This is a newer school with top notch staff and administration. I've had three children attend Three Peaks and have been pleased with both the quality of the teachers and the progress my children have made educationally. Facilities:They have three play grounds with one just for the kindergarteners, and the kindergarten classes also have their own private bathrooms. They train the children to respect and take care of the school and it shows. Teachers: We have had very positive experiences with the teachers our children have had. Most of then I would put past average and into the superb range. Especially the kindergarten & 1st grade staff. I don't think you can get a better start. Extra curriculars: The school has a part tie art teacher on st(provided by the PTA) which works in classes every week. The school also does c from 1-5th grades before school Tuesdays and Thursday. Orchestra is offered Tuesday and Friday during school in the afternoon for 2-5th grades(at different times for different levels. At certain times of the year Spanish classes are offered before school on Monday and Wednesday mornings in two different age groups with two different teachers.

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.
