I love how the pricipal works hard to have the best for the school, the teachers, and our kids. They have a modern team to teach the kids. And work hard so all kids go together in the level of learning. Ive had my kids at this school from my biggest daughter that just graduated from highschool to the smallest thats just starting with kindergarten. I love this 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.
