Union has gone to the dogs. No more ambition in the students for after school activities. everyone stands around at dances. underfunded sports, athletes hardly care either. their region is full of private recruiting schools which isn't fair. teachers are sarcastic and dry. a depressing place if you ask me. i hardly have any motivation to get up in the morning.

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.
