My child attended this school for first grade, it was not a pleasant experience. I would not recommend it and we will be looking for a different school for second grade.

We have 3 children at Oakwood and are very pleased with the education and experience they have had thus far. The teachers have been fantastic. The math programs need improvement, but the science and music programs are great! Great office support. We were disappointed when the ski program was discontinued this year.

My children just finished their early years at Oakwood. They have had an incredible education experience there. Many enhanced learning experiences thanks to wonderful parent involvement. The teachers are so dedicated at caring... all of them. Our experience at Oakwood could not have been better.

Oakwood has a positive environment, great parental support and teachers that challenge and engage the students. The teachers are innovative, engaging and truly seem to enjoy teaching.

Great school! Amazing parent involvement and an Arts program unlike any I've seen in Utah's public education system. My child had a rough first grade year, complete with divorce, and everyone in the faculty made our lives easier at a difficult time.

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.
