We love the Spanish Immersion program at Buffalo Point. It has helped my daughter have a culturally enriched learning environment and also challenged her academically. The principal is wonderful and easy to talk to. The teachers have been great so far. There are lots of opportunities for parents to be involved!

Love this school! We recently moved out of the school boundaries and greatly miss this school! We hope to move back by the beginning of next school year. The office staff and principal are great! Teachers are awesome and really care about the students. Parental involvement is welcomed and awesome. I may be bias but I sure think this is the best elementary in Davis County school district!

Just recently moved here and the principal was fantastic and understanding enough to grant my daughter a boundary waiver due to her anxiety over the track schools. Very nice and personable staff and looking forward to being an active parent.

After moving around a lot, I'm happy that we have "landed" in a really good school. The teachers are great - the principal is very involved and there is a great sense of community.

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.
