Posted August 15, 2012

I didn't appreciate hearing my Kindergartener come home and tell me that they were constantly told to be quiet and do their work, or to be quiet, hurry up and eat their lunch. Even I witnessed teachers in the higher grades grab kids by their arms, get in their faces, and told to keep their mouths shut. I feel these teachers need more training in handling the students and situations properly. I was very disappointed.

I have a child with behavioral problems. Due to job transfers we have moved around a lot. Even since he started at Dee his behavioral problems have increased. He is now terrified to go to school. He was doing great in his last 3 schools. Dee school doesn't have a good special ed program. But they do have great teachers.

The staff at Dee Elementary are superb. 78% of the population are Hispanic but they are very welcoming. There are no walls on the classrooms, so it can be challenge at first for the kids to get used to. The school does a great job of helping the children who are struggling in school but because of the need for high test scores, they focus more on bringing up the children who need extra attention. There is little to no parent involvement, but hopefully they can get a PTA in there to help out soon.

Very diverse and easy to access. Students have their challenges, but several programs offered at Dee, enable students to be successful before, during, and after 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.
