This school does not seem to know how to handle special needs kids such as high functioning autism they are totally clueless the whole district in fact it is totally clueless on how to handle these kids, if you're not a member of the sports team or the cheerleading, they have quite a bullying situation going on at the school

Lack of extra curricular activies. Mediocre counseling center. Wide variety of teachers from excellent to below average. The new Principle seems promising. Not a high risk student population, great PTA and parental support. For a Teacher or Counselor this is a sweet gig. They could do so much more.

I love this school! If you are thinking of sending your kid here, do it! I moved from Las Vegas, where the schools are horrible, so when I got here I expected the worst. Wrong! The staff is excellent, and very well trained. The student's are nice, the food is good, and the class's are actually fun. (Well, most of them.) I assure you, this is a great school!

Even without clubs, this school is great. Our children get the education vital in todays world. The community recreation program offers a wide scope of activities outside the school. I would not put my children in any other school or district.

This school is very good but has nearly no extracurricular activities. The classes are very small and the teachers are very interactive with the students. They got rid of most of the activities last year and now they only have Jazz Band and the Early Reading Club. Would love to see more clubs, but I don't know if that will happen. Even the PTSA disappeared. What is happening to RJH?

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.
