I'm at 6th grader at Riverton and I think that everything is pretty good. I think that the school is making cool updates like chess club and film club( film club rocks!!) except for the lunch which can still be improved. But the best is film club where you can make a movie. Last year i made a movie and its called 'Alien Radar' (look it up on the film club website and see me, im the guy dressed up as the girl.)

We, too were sent here for ALPS last year even though it was not our boundary school We have thoroughly enjoyed it! We enjoy the smaller school size and the incredible staff. They have implemented both an orchestra program and a choir this year, which are amazing. What a happy accident!

Last year my daughter was forced into Riverton school because of the ALPS program due to glitches in our area ALPS school. I am so grateful that she was!! This school is incredible. The staff and teachers are wonderful and so caring. It has been such a wonderful experience for us we decided to come back again this year rather than going back to our boundary ALPS school. Thank so much.

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.
