Very happy with Wasatch! The principal, Ms Candler, is incredibly organized and energetic. She is a savvy advocate for the teachers and students. She knows the name of every child in the school and is doing daily rounds in all the classrooms - she has a great pulse on what's happening "on the ground," down to the smallest child's need. But she also sees big picture goals and can effectively navigate the large systems around Wasatch. The ambitious PTA raises well over 50K/year to support the teachers and programs, which makes this a very well funded school, with all the advantages that come with excellent funding. Unlike many schools that are cutting even basic programs, Wasatch has full library services, physical education, Playworks during recess, a fully staffed computer lab and roaming computer access, not to mention a very extensive arts programs. Their arts program includes and surpasses the Tanner Fine Arts grant, with dance, visual arts, 4th grade and up band, music, and even little theater performances. There are screenings and resources offered to kids of all needs - including the PTA paying for a vision assessment and providing free eyeglasses to children in need, as well as on site counseling support services. The community spirit is strong with Halloween carnivals, back to school BBQ's, and a huge Arts Showcase that is a total delight. The teachers are enthusiastic, experienced, and engaging. Ms Candler is very wise in her hiring process and goes above and beyond to attract and maintain the best teachers. Parents are artistic, involved, and welcoming. An awesome school.
