River Heights Elementry has a great academic program, I've been very impressed by the things my child learns. The school offers little extracurricular activities but the community offers oodles. They could work on including more of the arts and music. The parent involvement is outstanding. There are plenty of room moms and student teachers to accomidate the large class sizes. This past year the PTA asked for money donations over having the children do fundraisers and it work exceptionally well. Parents are a hudge part of the success of this school.

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.
