Rockwell Charter High is a fantastic school. I have 6 kids and feel I know the school system in Utah fairly well. My 3 youngest are Rockwell students with one graduating in 2011. This school, especially teacher, Mr.Brian Hull, (of course many other teachers but he comes to my mind first) the counselor Misty Madsen and the administrator, Darren Beck. The wellbeing of each and every student is important to this school. And statistcs show that this school has the lowest incident of bullying, drugs found on campus and drop outs. This is a school that really, really cares!!!

All the teachers here know my child's name which is reassuring especially during the teenage years. The smallness of it is a huge advantage in my book. The principal is passionate about education reform and helping students succeed whatever it takes. My student has opportunities here that I know would not have been given him at a jr. college sized high school. My daughter will go here shortly. I believe she will thrive in this environment.

My babysitter attends this school. She LOVES this school, she is a good student, a good kid, and I think the world of her. Subsequently, I enrolled my 7th grader here when the time came. He has some special needs, an IEP, and requires a little extra oomph (like he received in elementary school). I did quite a bit of research, making sure this school would be a good fit for him. I met with all of his teachers, made contact with the Director, made several photocopies of his IEP, etc.. Well.... long story short, we lasted only one semester. The teachers liked my son, but didn't do much for him in terms of his IEP or Accommodations. The Special Ed teacher is completely overwhelmed (lots of spec ed kids are attracted to this school --- for the same reasons I was). She is very nice, friendly, and upbeat. But the "class" is more like a StudyHall/DayCare without any discernible academic sense of direction. As far as the student body was concerned, at least for my son's grade, they seemed a little rough around the edges... My World-Class Babysitter still loves it there, and she must have good reasons for it. But we left to go to the mainstream school & haven't looked back.

I have two boys at this school. They are in special Ed. This school is really bad. There are two special Ed teachers for aprox 100 kids and there is only 1 aid between them. We came from another state and this is just unbelievable. I have sat in on my kids classes regular Ed and special Ed classes it was unbearable. I thought charter schools were suppose to be better and this one is clearly not. Half the time the teachers aren't even paying attention to the kids, they get up and walk out of class. Before you enroll your kid sit in on the classes.

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.
