I really love having my children in this school. I have not had a problem with any of the staff. They are very helpful.

As a parent of a Middle Canyon Child, I think there are certainly areas where our school is lacking. I do see a lot of dedicated efforts on the part of the teachers and staff, but I also see a lot of confusion about exactly where to direct the efforts. Teachers are very willing to work with parents and develop a plan for the child's success--if the parents ask. Leadership is an issue at this school as are teacher cliques and uninvolved parents who expect the school to educate the child without their support.

I think they have emplemented some very positive programs and are very concerned about education. I do think the class sizes are too large, but that is the case at every school in the Tooele District.

Unlike the other rater here I have seen some very positive things at this school. The teachers are easy to work with and are concerned about the children and communicate with us all of the time. The biggest drawback is the teacher/student ratio. Over all it's a good school.

I was very disappointed in this school. The environment was very negative. I am glad that I switched 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.
