Channing Hall School is located in Draper, UT and is in Channing Hall School District. It is a charter school that serves 667 students in grades K-8.
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.
Channing Hall School did not make AYP in 2009. Under No Child Left Behind, a school makes Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) if it achieves the minimum levels of improvement determined by the state of Utah in terms of student performance and other accountability measures. See Channing Hall School's test results to learn more about school performance.
Channing Hall School
I went to Channing in 7th and 8th grade ('06-'08). I thought I wasn't learning anything while I was there, but I'm ahead of most of my friends from my current school and definitely the kids from the public schools (I'm going to another charter school right now). The fault of Channing is the lack of diversity and different perspectives. Everyone has the same science teacher, the same Spanish teacher, the same math teacher. And despite Channing's idealistic "IB program" mask the teachers are all extremely conventional and one-sided...you are not free to openly discuss matters as everything is found offensive. You can see that like 95% of the students are white. There was one half-Asian and one half-black in the entire grade. Everyone is exactly the same and the teachers are far from controversial or interesting. You will definitely not get a unique learning experience from Channing, but I don't know that any better middle schools exist- my current charter high school blows Channing out of the water, though. It had to be better than public school at least, because there are such fewer students, and they're all a lot less likely to be stoners.
