My kids have loved Ridgeline Elementary. The teachers, principal, and specialty classes are all great! We're moving soon and are disappointed to be leaving Ridgeline.

Don't move into this area if you can avoid it! If you already live here, go to the charter school.

We moved into the area two years ago and did not have a good transition. Our daughter's teacher was passive aggressive with the students and abused her position. And to add to that large problem our daughter was being terrorized by another student. We made the teacher aware of the problem but she did not seem concerned at all. Thankfully that teacher is no longer at the school. We have never been a fan of the principal he seems uninterested in the students that attend his school. It's time for him to retire and let someone new freshen up things at Ridgeline. Overall the school is okay.

I've loved Ridgeline Elementary! It is a great fit for my kids. The principal is excellent and always very friendly. My kids attended a local charter school for a few years and I was somewhat reluctant to take them out when we moved. But Ridgeline has excellent teachers, a fabulous facility, and there is a lot of parent involvement.

Mostly good teachers. Poor leadership in the Principal Ken Higgins. If you have money you will be liked more in the school, it seems to be a big issue. Also watch out for some behaviors of some of the teachers, just keep an eye out for you kids' best interest!!!

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.
