I love Twin Peaks. My oldest son has been there since he was in pre-school and now my youngest is in kindergarten. They both love their teachers and love to go to school and that speaks volumes about what Twin Peaks has to offer.

Two of my three children attend school at Twin Peaks Elementary. I am extremely satisfied with this school! The curriculum is fantastic, the teachers and staff are welcoming, understanding and patient, and my children love waking up everyday to go to school! All the students are exceptional and there is rarely a problem with bullying or gang related activities. The school is in a convenient location, in a quiet suburb, but not far from major roads. I try to volunteer my help as often as possible, and the teachers are very appreciative. I am planning on moving in the next 6 months and will only buy a home close to the proximity of Twin Peaks so my children can continue their education at this school. If there were 10 stars to give this school I would give them 10. Thanks Twin Peaks!

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.
