Amazing! For a title one school this school is truly amazing. Parental involvement sucks but the teachers, staff,a dn PTA volunteers more than make up for that. Amazing technology available in the school. Mrs. Clough is a great principal. Honestly I was afraid to send my kids to this school and have since changed my opinion. You won't be disappointed in this school. I have two kids who are advanced for their age and there are programs in place to provide them with more. My child who is average/lower is doing great too.

I have not been very happy with this school. They have no good programs to help advanced students. It seems like the teachers teach only to the bottom of the class. Some of the teachers are really good but it is obvious that some are only there filling a seat until they qualify for retirement. We pulled our children out and home schooled them rather than send them to Doxey.

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.
