We moved here from Southern Cal and my twins started 4th grade in the middle of the year. I have to admit their whole academic changed coming here. The teachers were fantastic and they were always communicating with us parents. the school was half the size of their old one so it felt like they got great attention. I think this is the best choice for us and the surrounding neighborhood is fabulous.
Noting but positive experiences with this school. They have a lot of parental support and many great activities through the school year. The teachers have been amazing and have really helped my daughter to succeed.
This school has been o.k. but we've been unfortunate to have two burnt out teachers. The office staff is helpful for the most part, but sometimes the principal can be patronizing and defensive. Instead of helping parents to help them, she sometimes shuts them down. She was very accommodating, however, when I went to her and told her that my son needed to change teachers immediately. I think the district could do a better job at managing their money so that more could go to better teachers/better student experience. The school could do better about communicating with parents about concerns.
We have been really disappointed in most of our experiences with this school and the Tooele district. We have had 3 of our children attend this school. Some of the teachers are so awful, they just shouldn't be teaching anymore. Our children haven't been challenged to excel. Working with an IEP is a nightmare. Of course, there are a few good teachers but they can't make up for the rest. They also lack any extra programs and if it weren t for the parent involvement it would be a complete disaster. Next year we have chosen another school in a totally different district!
