My daughter is in 3rd grade and has gone to a different school every year so far. We finally feel 'home' at Westland. Her teacher is so wonderful. The principal is very involved and sets the tone for every aspect of the school. We couldn't be happier!

I love this school!!! My child has gotten a great education from a very caring staff! Mrs. Egan, the principal, is exceptional along with the rest of the office staff; not to mention the amazing teachers that make this school wonderful! I know there is a waiting list to get in so good luck! And I thank them for their hard work.

The ALPS program at Westland is run very well. My accelerated child was challenged, motivated, and inspired by this program and 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.
