Keep in thoughts that all the awards, school rankings and on-line praise you hear wont ever give you the same info as actually visiting…
Moving can be stressful. Obtaining a residence, a job, and good schools for the children can be massive hurdles to overcome. And sorting through all the school ranking for common education lists can be tiresome. So I set out with goal to do a lot of that investigation for you and unearth one particular district that sounds like a great move for relocating a family.
Keep in thoughts that all the awards, school rankings and on-line praise you hear wont ever give you the exact same information as in fact visiting an region. But its an excellent location to start off. One particular of the areas that kept turning up in my searches was the Salt Lake City Public Schools. Now dont pack up and move on my say so! But appear at the accolades theyve received. If a move to the Salt Lake Schools region is a possibility for you that could be a very good point.
The school district of Salt Lake City Schools has received quite a few awards throughout the 2006-2007 school year. For example, 4 Salt Lake City Schools students who attend Bryant Middle School recently won Fourth Location and the Naval History Award for their presentation at the National History Day competition. This was a national competition!
Salt Lake City Schools Escalante Elementary won the Intel School of Distinction Award for its commitment to academic excellence and science instruction. Two Salt Lake City Schools not too long ago received national recognition. West High School has been named the top rated high school in Utah and number 158 in the nation by Newsweek and the Washington Post. It is the second consecutive year West has earned the best spot. Highland High is ranked at 285 in the national listing. Another Salt Lake City School – Northwest Middle – won the 2007 Distinction in Character Education Award from the National Center for Community of Caring.
On Might 18, 2007, the National Conference named Sheila Jaymes, a Salt Lake City Schools counselor at Wasatch Elementary and half time truancy specialist, the Volunteer of the Year for Community and Justice. For the last nine years, she has volunteered her time with the NCCJ, working with adolescents and community leaders within Salt Lake City Schools.
Doug Jorgenson, Biotechnology teacher at Highland High School, has been named the Outstanding Concurrent Teacher for Salt Lake City Schools for 2007 by Salt Lake Community College. Jorgenson has been teaching for the district for 11 years. His subject places are Biology Honors and ELP, Zoology and Biotechnology.
Frankly, any district can give out volunteer and teacher of the year awards. So Im more impressed by the national placement of Salt Lake City Schools talked about above. If you are intrigued, attempt going to some parent boards and see what locals say about their Salt Lake City Schools.
