This is a great school and my kids love it there. The teachers and staff are excellent and really care about their students and the education they get! The facilities need a lot of work, but love the 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.

More from this school
  • All of our students take music appreciation and they begin learning a string instrument in the third grade. We are an extremely small school. This allows us to focus on each individual child and create learning plans to fit their unique needs. John Hancock Charter School students consistently score high on state level and school level assessments. We believe this is due to our high academic standards, our small school setting, dedicated educators, involved parents and amazing students.
