    I'm not sure where these other rating are coming from... perhaps sore grapes? I can tell you that my experience has been fantastic. The programs this school has implemented are wonderful for educational social and artistic development. The principal is accessible understanding and involved. Every teacher I've been in contact with has been kind concerned and hard working. My kids have bloomed while at this school and we have the staff at this wonderful school to thank!

    I attended this school from kindergarten to sixth grade and absolutely loved it. The average age of the teachers seems to have gone down since I've left; when I went there most teachers had been teaching there for years already. My family never had a difficult time with the faculty or staff who I believed to be very friendly. The principal was always good as well and we actually only had one change in the position during the seven years that I attended.

    Our experience at Bluffdale Elementary has been exceptional. As a huge believer in education...I have 3 degrees of my own. With this I'm thrilled with the help and support that the teachers and administration of this school has provided my kids. This isn't to say that everything has always been perfect...there has been a couple teachers that were a bit difficult but as a parent should I filled in and supported where I thought there were shortcomings. Face it...life isn't always rosy. However on the bright side my kids had to learn to deal with this difficulty which in turn gives them a better realization of life. This is the last year of attendance for my youngest. He is very well prepared to move forward. Specifics? The school has some excellent teachers and an outstanding Principal. While the classes didn't always challenge my kids we worked with the teachers to make things more challenging.

    Surprisingly one of the worst schools in JSD. So many new teachers each year who end-up moving on. Class sizes are small but test scores here are some of the lowest. It seems like a lot of the parents around here are busy headed to the gym or with new babies to give the new teachers the support needed to educate kids

    Our experience was bad. There was NEVER supervision of my children at recess. It was a chaotic mess!

    Bluffdale was not willing to work with me on my child's schedule. I was forced to take him to a different school that was more accomodating.

    Our experience with bluffdale elementary was not positive. We found that most teachers were very arrogant and refused to accept input on their programs from parents.
