This is a great school...I have found that the majority of those who complain about it are also the parents who aren't involving themselves in the school. The principal is absolutely fantastic, and I've been pleased with the teachers my child has had. There is a lot of funding going to putting technology in the classrooms, which I think is fantastic. The only thing this school needs to improve is more parental involvement!

According to the testing scores it is below average and needs a continual review of the academic structure. Maybe there is to much video game playing at home and not enough reading writting and arithmatic. Remember these kids will become the leaders of tommarrow. So give them the tools they are going to need now.

The teachers are wonderful, there are alot of ESL students so that is why the test score are not were they should be. I believe that alot of moms would love to volenteer but either have jobs or younger children and are not able to...

This is not a school where you can expect your child to succeed. They just simply slide by without much effort. Niether I nor my children were ever satisfied with the school or staff.

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.
