My school is Hunter Junior High School. My Granddaughter is attending this year, and she enjoys the difference junior high lunch program is from her elementary school program. Keep up the great choices, healthy for everyone.

My school is Hunter Jr. High, how our school can improve is by getting better quality school supplies.

Great teachers, great atmosphere. Have had 4 children go through this school and I highly recommend it. Their honors program is excellent. They have a wonderful principal too.

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.
