I must admit that we didn't research the schools very well when we moved here 12 years ago, but we have been so happy with Rock Canyon Elementary, Centennial Middle School, and Timpview High. If I had done the research I should have done, I would have chosen these very schools to go to. They rate among the highest in the District academic ratings and in the State, too! Encouraging the development of the whole child, mentally, emotionally, physically, and socially is very important to me. The teachers and principals are wonderful and I have been impressed with how well they interact with and work with students, parents, PTA and community members in all of these areas. I feel Rock Canyon's greatest strengths are the teachers/staff, principal, involved parents that happily volunteer, and the students themselves-- as a general rule, they are kind to each other, bright, and well-behaved.
