I love this school and how much it has helped my son! It's clear that the teachers are committed to meeting the needs of every individual. Classes aren't small, but there is an assistant teacher in every classroom, so kids get the individual help they need. My son has grown by leaps and bounds since coming to APA! I am so glad I made the change, and I recommend it to everyone!

APA has done wonderful things for my two sons. Both of my children were below grade level in Reading and Math when we came to APA. After 2 years, they are now at grade level. I truly believe my youngest son would not be reading at all if it weren't for this school. In addition to all that, when we were starting a new school year, I realized that it didn't matter which teacher my son got because every single teacher he could possibly be assigned is amazing. WE 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.
