This school was a horrible experience and declined in each new year that my child attended. Mr. Hanvey the principal is incompetent. Despite reaching out to him on numerous occaions he did not once follow up on the many concerns that I brought to his attention. Mrs. Davis is an awful teacher who does not inspire children to learn and certainly does not help them grow confidence with her yelling. I would highly recommend that you choose an alternate education plan for your child if you can.

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.
