Farmington Jr. High school has friendly students and staff. This school has up to date tech and programs that make it fun for the students. Excellent school.

I love this school! There are a lot of different teachers, so if you don't like one you can always switch... The counselors are really nice and helpful! It seems more like fun, rather than a job to them. I like how we all get our own locker, and there is a lot of room, and the school isn't like crowded with students. How there is only one level instead of two, makes it harder to get to classes, but they really thought about the layout, so most of my classes are in the same hall by my locker. Not all spread out. :) I love this school!

I love my school1 It is such a great place to learn! I want to deticate this to Mr. Bailey who is a teacher at Farmington Jr. I think all teachers should take lessons from him! I love Mr. Bailey!

This school is good academically but the layout isn't very good. Because it is only a one floor it is harder to make it to all of the classes on time.

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.
