I know the principal very well and she is a loving dedicated woman who has her students best interests at heart always. Good education is the best way out of poverty. GCMS needs these funds to help raise the prospects of the children there who are from the reservations/low income families. Help her help the children!

The people are wonderful and care about the students being well-rounded as far as them becoming productive members of society, including behavior as well as academic achievement.

GCMS offers a safe and nurturing environment as well as an excellent educational program where students are rewarded weekly, monthly, and at the end of each trimester for their successes. The students themselves will tell you what an awesome school they attend!

The school provides education to Native Americans, providing an opportunity for them to learn and grow. This is so needed to help them have confidence in their abilities to contribute to our society

I love Grand County Middle School because it is the stepping stone before high school and I feel it needs more funding so they will be more prepared for their 'High School' years

My son attended Grand County Middle School. The staff and faculty are great!

The staff and educators at Grand County Middle School are innovative and approachable. The students really do come first. The best part is, that while the district is financially distressed, and many face loosing their jobs, every day the staff and teachers continue to put the students and their education first. They continue to look for new ideas to help teach the kids with less and less money. They have not given up on the students. They believe in the students and their future.

Through cooperation and cohesion, we as a staff under a fabulous administration, are manging to do more with less. We are making AYP for our state core tests even with 50% free and reduced lunch. We offer afterschool academic assistance, mentoring, and the best - my climbing club where I introduce students to the phenomenal climbing of the Moab area.

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.
