I love mcpolin! I have three kids there right now. A kinder and two second graders. Dedicated, tight group of teachers and a very supportive staff. Everyone knows your child's name and personality and how best to help them learn. Great small school with just a nice community feel!

My two children went to McPolin for four years and I cannot say enough about the teachers, staff and administration. It is true that at least 50% of the population is ESL and many of the resources do go to them, but those resources are also Title One resources and must be used very specifically. Also if your child happens to need these resources, regardless of ethnicity, (help with reading or math) they will definitely receive them. My children are definitely on the higher end of achievement and I thought they were thoroughly challenged through their time at McPolin. They made wonderful friends and had fabulous teachers Also, as of last year McPolin was the HIGHEST ranked elementary school in Park City!

We're wondering why there aren't more reviews on this school - my child doesn't go to this school (yet), but I'd love to hear from more parents. I've been told by many people in the community that McPolin diverts the majority of its resources to ESL - English as a Second Language courses. Is this true? I love the idea of a culturally diverse school - but I have to say, I haven't heard a lot of endorsements on this school's overall curricula .... yet! Please dismiss my ratings - I couldn't submit this without entering a rating.

Great teachers in preschool as far as our little one is concerned. Parent teacher nights are very helpful also, and we wouldn't miss them for quids.

It has a great population of diverse students -- race, socio-economic status and education. The community really cares!

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.
