Sunset Elementary: New Principal, and great teachers--some fantastic experienced teachers interspersed with teachers with new fresh ideas. Love the teacher/parent involvement, and the desire of the administration to have each child in his/her BEST learning environment. All my kids have attended Sunset, and have done well in the Intermediate, Middle and High Schools.

New Principal with defined goals for the school. Test scores are great and going up each year. The students did awesome on the IOWA testing. Great PTA involvement, after school programs, kindergarten extended day, summer reading program, great art & excellent music programs, safe school, teachers that want the best for your child.... and so much more. Go visit them; it's a great school!

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.
