I love this school I went here for elementary and Now my daughter and my Niece go here it's amazing how much they have excelled. My daughters Teacher is Mrs.Edwards and she is amazing, she teaches them sign language as well as everything else. She also makes youtube videos so that when your child is at home they will know as well as your self how to do the homework she also does songs to help with the homework as well. Very amazing teacher. I love this school and the staff. They never let a child be left behind on anything they will work with them until they understand it. I will recommend this school to everyone.

I have 3 kids that attend. We have problems with teachers every year. The teachers don't give you a whole lot of information as to what they are teaching the kids. If the kids don't finish their work they have to stay inside for recess. My kids all say they don't have enough time. My 7 year old was held after school for 15 minutes because another kid was picking on him, so they both got in trouble. The school never called me, I had the whole family looking everywhere for him, calling the neighbors, went back to the school twice. Finally I went in the school to his class room and found him there. Well I have found a different school for next year. The principal doesn't seem to care about making parents happy. Just a few of the many problems.

My child began attending this school in the fall of 2011, and I have been very satisfied with his education thus far. The curriculum has been well rounded, which was important to me as I feel science and art are just as important as reading and math. There are also a wide variety of children of various races, religions, and socioeconomic backgrounds which gives the school a great multicultural feel (something that can be lacking in Utah). The principal is very active and visible around the school, and she, along with the office staff, know my child by name and always seem happy to see him. I work closely with my child's teacher to ensure he is getting the support he needs at home, and she has always welcomed my impromptu visits. Overall I feel this school is well run and am happy my child enjoys his class and is receiving a quality education.
