This school is great, but their struggling managing with the kid's attitudes. looks like the kids are controlling the school then the adults lots of thugs... but those were in my days. i'm not sure whats going on now. plus, they have allot of no-english students, so its not there fault if the school has a bad reputation.

I attended this school for 3 years. I never received the attention or help that I needed. Instead I was disciplined for my A.D.D symptoms. The school was dirty, and unsafe. Students had to be cautious about the colors they wore to school, difficult to learn when you are unable to feel safe.

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.
