Entheos Academy is located in Kearns, UT and is in Entheos Academy School District. It is a charter school that serves 512 students in grades K-9.
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.
Entheos Academy made 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 Entheos Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
My kids have gone here since the school opened. It has improved each year. The current director is the best so far- and is great at enforcing discipline, while finding a balance between parents' concerns and teachers' needs. DISCOVERY is wonderful, and the small classes and grade sizes, keep me at this school. Just like any school, there are bullies, kids who get out of line, and few teachers who need as much discipline as some students. Overall, if you are an involved parent, your kids will thrive here.
My children have been in this school since it opened up. Although it had a few kinks to work out in the begining, it is an exceptional school. It keeps progressing and gets better every year. I love the discovery program, and expeditions. My kids can't wait for discovery classes. I love the opportunity it gives my children to learn something they may never have had the opportunity to learn otherwise. I love the parent involvement that is incouraged and expected. I think it is because of the parent involvement that it makes for a great community of teachers, staff, parenets, and students. we love this school!
