Challenger Traverse Mountain. The way how this school recognizes kids achievements doesn't match what they say at the corporate level. Process of how the scholarship are given is not transparent even if I and other parents required this. A kid that worked hard and achieved excellence in most of the requirements gets discouraged if another kid with much less achievements got the scholarship. Even if you explain to the kid why you think that he didn't get the scholarship the facts will null your explanations. I am considering to stop taking my kid to this school next year. I tried to contact the corporate and address this principle issue with the head master of the school with no success. I talked to other parents and they might take the same action in regards to this issue.

I have been a Challenger parent for 8 years and currently have 3 of my children at the Traverse Mountain campus. The education continues to amaze me at each grade level, and there has never been a problem that the wonderful school leaders haven't helped me through. One of my children has a learning disablilty, and they have been involved with solutions through every step. Additional tutoring, working with her doctors, helpng to bolster her self-esteem along the way, etc.... The year that never ceases to amaze me is the all-day kindergarten year. They come out at the end of the year having memorized the preamble to the Constitution and written their first book - the Young Author's project. Challanger is highly acedemically oriented, and is an amazing education. We will be Challenger parents for as long as we can be!

After having my kids in many different schools, both public and private, (we moved a lot for years) I have to say that this school has steadily impressed me. Challenger schools are very academic, and they don't try to minimize that fact. It takes a good 4- 6 weeks for a child to adjust to how rigorous the learning and homework can be, and if you're looking for sports programs or want your child to learn the violin in 5th grade, then this school may not be the right fit. (They do, however, have a fantastic music instructor that teaches advanced choral concepts.) But if academics is your focus and you can supplement your child's learning with extra-curricular activities at home, then it's definitely worth looking into. I think that all the parents at this school would agree that the curriculum is outstanding, closely followed by the quality of teachers and administrators (who truly seem to care about the kids). I've had my kids in public schools in small towns, large cities and in private school at the Waterford School in Sandy (also an outstanding school, but at nearly triple the price). Overall, we've been especially happy with this school. Hope this helps someone out. :)

Although, I really like the headmaster and some of the staff members are really terrific the schools foundation is Mormon. The schools principals are very church related rather than education based. I think in other areas this school is probably much better as the Mormon influence isn't nearly as intense. If you are looking for diversity this is definitely not the school - in this sense it really isn't much different than the public schools or Mountainville which is based on Covey's 7 principals (also Mormon). Also, absolutely NO parent involvement. The teaching style seems to be teaching to the way girls tend to learn vs how boys do.

I have two children enrolled at this location. This is the 4th year for my older child at a Challenger School. My children have also attended the West Jordan campus and the Salt Lake Campus. The Traverse Mountain campus is a wonderful new facility, the Headmaster can not only remember each childs name, but also remember the parents. School is well organized with caring staff the pushes your child to exceed and be accountable. We can not say enough wonderful things about the way they educate. The preschool and kindergarten are so fun the kids don't realize they are learning. My daughter was reading at 4 books that were at 3rd grade level (Freckle Juice). My older child was doing fractions in the 1st grade. Simply amazing way of teaching!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
