Our child has always had amazing teachers. B track has the best teachers. Great learning. Wonderful principal.

Posted March 12, 2012

Had a poor experience with my Kindergartener here last fall. An overwhelmed teacher with little skills to contain & direct five year old energy in a large class. Found that my child was being yelled at and embarrassed in class by the teacher after it had been going on for months. I never knew what was going on in the class even though I was as involved as I could be. My concerns were ignored by the principal.

Not a bad school, but it does not compare to our childrens' previous school in Granite School District. They are not challenged and have nothing for children that are "above average". They just sit in class, bored out of their minds, with no work to help push them. Rarely sent home with homework.....in any grade level.

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.
