    As a Wasatch Alum looking back I feel so incredibly lucky to have been a Wasatch Star!!! Though a lot has changed about the school in the past few years I still feel very close to the teachers there and have been back to visit several times recently; my old teachers still remember me years later. The focus on arts is incredible and the yearly arts festival is amazing!!! In addition there are a lot of activities sponsored by Wasatch and the staff and faculty are wonderful. The ELP program is great for kids above their grade level. Overall this is just a fantastic learning environment with great extras. Students can look back after graduation and truly appreciate their elementary education. I love you Wasatch!

    My son attended this school through the fifth grade. The arts and other academic focuses are very good. I was disappointed by some of the attention I felt like my son or I needed in the past but now that we have moved around the nation I realize it must take a lot of work to keep a school running at the level of excellence that Wasatch is. It was challenging and the students were held accountable for their behavior. I think Wasatch did a great job helping me raise my son. I wish we could just move it with us. The parent involvement in this area is extremely high. The teachers keep an appropriate balance in the classrooms and are fair in their assessments. Thank you Wasatch. We compaired Wasatch to private schools in the area and stayed put because they were about the same if not a little lower

    The music and art program are fabulous. It appears the classrooms aren't as structured as my child was use to. That may be due to a different style of teaching. All in all very nice school.

    Excellent school great after school activites you can really tell the teachers care and love the kids. Yearly art program is incredible where the entire school is decorated. Ms. Rudloff was great.

    My children have attend Wasatch for the last four years and they have had a great experience. The parental involvment is fantastic it really makes the school what it is. There is a good variety of after-school clubs (skiing chess languages plays etc.) My first grader was in a play with the local high shcool and loved it. Wastach also has a strong focus on the arts starting at kindergarten and the new principal is great.
