2014 SAGE Results: 2 Canyons Schools Rank No. 1 in Utah

Draper Park Middle School Ranked No. 1 – Language Arts

Granite Elementary School Ranked No. 1 – Science

Canyons School District students on average outperformed their Utah peers on most of the SAGE tests, in some areas by as many as 13 percentage points.

“This is an encouraging beginning for the District on these more rigorous state standards and assessments,” said Dr. Jim Briscoe, Superintendent of Canyons School District. “The data reflect the hard work of our teachers in implementing the state standards and effectively utilizing our District curriculum, as well as their focus on research-based instructional practices. This strong achievement baseline indicates we are headed in the right direction with our Academic Plan.”

State SAGE results are available for all school districts and schools on its website.

Elementary Schools

In elementary schools, Canyons is well above the state average in all eight SAGE tests. In English Language Arts, Canyons students on average performed 8 to 9 percentage points higher than the state.

3 Schools in the Top 25 – Science

4 Schools in the Top 25 – Language Arts

Middle Schools

In middle schools, Canyons is well above the state average in eight of the nine SAGE tests. For English Language Arts and Science, Canyons students on average performed 10 percentage points higher than the state.

Corner Canyon High School is in the Top 25 – English Language Arts

Brighton High School is in the Top 25 – Mathematics

Also of note: Canyons students did not take the Secondary Math III test last spring because Secondary Math III had not yet been implemented in Canyons as part of the new state core. However, Canyons’ state report includes Secondary Math III scores of students who took the test in a previous school but who recently moved into Canyons District. Canyons is implementing Secondary Math III this school year, and looks forward to measuring student achievement in Secondary Math III in the spring 2015 SAGE testing period.

Utah students took the state-mandated SAGE tests for the first time in spring 2014. The tests were designed to measure more challenging state standards in mathematics, English language arts, and science. Because the SAGE tests are different from the CRTs, results of the two tests cannot be compared.

The SAGE tests are one of many measurements of student achievement. Other test data show rising student achievement in Canyons School District.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
