Do not if your child attend here, if you are not LDS. My child is a very outgoing girl and always received good grades and great attendance. She only attended this school for about three weeks and was promply harassed by children for not attending their ward. The principal stated he could not do anything because he did not know what child was involved. Her teacher would smack her on the arm if she could not answer her question and was very impatient with her, my daughter was scared to ask her questions if she did not fully understand. She was transferred to another school because she frequently came home with headaches and then she cried nonstop the night before school. After being transferred, she is doing great, attending school and loving it again!
