We moved to leave this school's boundaries. There are a few excellent teachers but most are terrible. The Principle was nice but did not address bullying/fighting in the school. I'm glad we left.

This school is the best I have had 4 kids there in the past I recomend it to everyone. my child says 'they have been the best two school years of my life my gpa has improved two points thanks to the goals we set and we get prizes for setting the goals its so cool' so that is really a great program. the teachers are so connected with the children. and the pta has a very big parental unit. I feel that my child is safe at this school!

Have had 3 students here. We were very happy with the English teachers. They are very good and relate well with kids this age. They know how to reach kids. The kids learn a lot and have a good experience. Math is a little weak as it is in many jr. high schools around here. Teacher selection very important. High school had much better math department. Overall kids have been very happy here.

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.
