This is a great school. Five years ago we got a new principal and he is awesome. He is always in the classrooms and out after school interacting with the student and parents. He also does reading groups in the morning and has everyone help

This school has a new principal who is very approchable and very active with the students of the school. He is very willing to talk with parents and to work with you and your student. I have been happy with most of the teachers and feel that most of them really enjoy their work and are sincerely interested in their students. I am a very active volunteer at this school and have been for 5 years now. I do feel like I have seen an improvement in the environment at the school since my son started attending there.

I love this school. My child has a disability and they (her teachers and the principal) have worked hard to make sure she stays at her grade level. I was able to go to the principal with concerns I had for my daughter and knew she would help me out. Sadly, we are moving and I will really miss this school.

This is the worst elementary school I've ever seen. I love teachers and have always been very active in our school districts. These are the laziest and least effective teachers I've ever encountered. Please understand that my contact is with two teachers specifically. The school is poorly kept and the rules exercised by the school seem far more concerned with the teacher's convenience than for the well-being of the children. My experience with the principal was terrible. With her at the helm it is easy to see why the school is so woefully behind. If you care about your child's education then I would recommend that you stay away from King Elementary.

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.
