My son went to PH Jr. High from 6th - 8th grade and is now attending 9th grade at the High School. He has really enjoyed the learning experience here. The teachers actually listen to the kids and tailor things according to their interests. For example, in PE, rather than only having the typical soccer and basketball, they will have the opportunity to try out some less common sports based on their interests. After all, physical education can be accomplished through many different means. My son loves to write and his first year attending, one of the teachers allowed them to form a Book Writers Club that met after school once a week. He is more engaged in his own learning with this more adaptive approach to education. He is excited to be able to earn an IB diploma and we all feel that will give him an advantage after high school.

I have four children and they area currently attending Providence Hall Elementary and Jr. High. The environment that Providence Hall sets into their school is refreshing. They try to keep fun in education. I have been very pleased with the education they have received. My oldest son has ADHD and the counselors and teachers at the school have been so great to work with me. My son excelled this year in school for the first time in his life. I love Providence Hall!

My four children are currently attending Providence Hall Elementary and Jr. High. These two charter schools are a clear step up from their past public schools in Ventura County, CA and Riverton, UT, with the primary benefit being a higher adult/child ratio. So far their teachers have been motivated, positive, and great communicators. They seem willing to put in extra time when one of our children are struggling, and the IB teaching method seems to bring a welcomed focus and consistency. One the other hand, like all of the other public schools we attended, it is very much a public school that encourages mediocrity and shuns competition. Children in single parent families are going to be severely disadvantaged here: Our children come home with a huge amount of work every day, and they are clueless about what they have to do. We spend hours every day teaching our children the basics... it would almost be easier and more effective to home school them. Obviously, like all public schools, there is very little time actually devoted to education. For a public school in Utah or Southern California, Providence Hall is probably among the best. As a cure for public education? No way.

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.

More from this school
  • Providence Hall is a candidate school for the Primary Years Program. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Providence Hall believes is important for our students. What is IB? IB stands for International Baccalaureate. The IBO has provided an internationally recognized and respected philosophy or method of teaching and learning. This philosophy calls for a school and/or teacher to provide educational experiences to the students that will help to create internationally minded individuals who seek to create a better more peaceful world. An IB oriented school facilitates this atmosphere by fostering the following attributes in our students: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective. IB is inquiry-based, meaning that students practice critical thinking skills which encourage them to question, think outside of the box and become excellent problem solvers. The philosophy behind the IB teaching methodology and its incredibly high standards make the International Baccalaureate program a perfect match for Providence Hall. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years philosophy (Grades K-6) embraces a Trans- disciplinary teaching model that unites the traditional curriculum subjects together in a significant and practical way. Its Trans-disciplinary program of international education is designed to foster the development of the whole child.
