All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I do not recommend this school for any child anywhere and was shocked when I saw their state percentanges testings were much lower than the state average. The administration goes way beyond their scope in dealing with personal issues of families that are none of their business and have nothing to do with school.

I am not a parent of a student, but a party that has been invited in to the school to help work with high risk children. I see more one on one work with each child that attends school there. The resource staff and counslors know what they are doing and if they need help they ask for it. That is where I come in. Wonderful staff with better choices for the children that attend this school.

Pinnacle Canyon Academy use to be a good school, a better alternative to public school. But now things are much worse. Their reading programs really are horrible. I have a third grader who was reading with the same fluency as my first grader, until I took them both out and into a district school, now they are soaring. I definately would not recommend this school to any parent. Parent involvement is a must, yes but even then the parents show up to help and the there is nothing for them to do.

My son has attended PCA since preschool and will enter 3rd grade this Fall; I couldn't be happier with this school. The approach to discipline is consistent; the special ed program is alleged to be excellent; the character education program is just one way the school educates the 'entire student.' The reading program in the younger grades is outstanding, and the Everyday Math program is so practical. This public charter school offers parents a great alternative to the local public school system. Parents are requested to evaluate the staff and the school twice yearly, and I have seen several changes instituted immediately based upon these results. One final note--all teachers are hired on an 'at will' basis; their contracts are evaluated annually, which doesn't allow the laziness brought about by tenure.

I am not a parent but a student of this establishment. I loved every part of it, the teachers are great, best education system in carbon county, its also a great thing that PCA is moving into a different building. Extracurricular activities are some of the best I know.

Two of my children are attending Pinnacle Canyon Academy. I am glad PCA is there as an alternative. I like the fact that technology is a focus in every classroom, from pre-K through 8th grade. I love that PCA is a School of Character, and teaches Character Education everyday to every student. Parents are asked to volunteer four hours a month for eah of their children in the school. This has given me an opportunity take an active role in my children's education. Parents are also given a voice through voting on important issues, and by completing teacher evaluations. The reading program that is used in the lower grades is great. My kindergartener finished the year reading on a second grade level.
