This school has teachers who take their time out to make sure every student has a wonderful education. Their reading recovery program is sure to be one of the best in the state!


Posted March 30, 2011

After seeing several schools, I can see that East is one of the best. The building is quite old. That in no way reflects the warmth you receive while there. I've also heard many others comment on the positive atmosphere.

The teachers are really nice. They always go the extra mile. The extra math and reading help kids get in the morning and homework help in the afternoons really makes a difference.

East Elementary is the best school around! Principal Andrus and the teachers are exceptional educators who care deeply about every child. My children got a wonderful start there.

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.
