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.

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.

Great elementary! They will push your child to be the very best they can be. They are interested in parents opinions and I feel like I have control of my child's education. Very dedicated teachers and a wonderful principal who makes the school great including very friendly staff at the front desk!
