This school is going down hill and fast. Very disgusted with the lack of personality from the new principal. We had an amazing principal last year, but the sup canned him and left us with a sergeant! As a parent, I am very concerned. Test scores for school are great (improved significantly last year with old principal). Sad thing is I have to drag my son to school now. He used to love coming last year, but can't stand school class this year. There are some really good teachers, sadly not this year for my son. Looking at other options for next year.

I love the school! Teachers are great and willing to go the extra-miles to provide the best instruction. The building is old and full of memories.... finally the PTA and parents are very involved... what a treat!

I went to this school when i was a child and now my children attend...Things have changed quite a bit with the closure of taylor elementary. The class rooms are very large and i feel the quality of edcation is suffering because of this.

We have had many of our 14 children attend Polk and am happy with the education they have recieved, What I don't like is the chioce of where they have to attend after such a good school, Polk has a very good program, and teachers.

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.
