My children are excelling at Syracuse Elementary in their math and reading and have had outstanding teachers that really care about them. Every year my kids say they have a new favorite teacher. I look foward to a traditional schedule and hope to see test scores for all students improve since there won't be so many long breaks. I would imagine children that struggle in the year round schedule will have more consitency to their learning. Love Syracuse Elementary. The PTA is always present

Syracuse Elementary is a wonderful school. The school has wonderful teachers that really care about the students. The PTA is very involved. My children feel really safe at the school.

Number one is their Anti-bullying program and they are firm on the consequences. Students and teachers are trained to identify all aspects of bullying behavior and what to do. This makes our kids feel safe and comfortable, they enjoy coming to school, their self esteem improves and they in-turn, do better in school. Until you have seen a school without this program in place and a good principal to uphold it's guidelines, you won't know the important and positive changes this program creates. I wish more schools would adopt this program and uphold the consequences. Too many other schools and teachers turn their heads (I've seen it too often) and the victims truly suffer and don't want to go to school. Syracuse Elementary does phenomenal in this area. The principal (Laura Bond)is very involved. Most of the teachers are excellent, although a couple seem too stressed or unfocused.

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.
