The Utah School System
The western U.S. state of Utah is home to more than three million residents. With a combined attendance of over 650,000 pupils, the K-12 students attending the public schools of Utah make up a solid one-fifth of Utah’s total population! All of the public and private schools in Utah are under the supervision of the Utah State Board of Education.
Utah’s top three high schools have a student-to-teacher ratio that falls well below the state average, and class sizes at the remainder of the state’s top ten high schools match or slightly exceed the state’s average class size.
Utah Student-to-Teacher Ratios
Granger High School has a 24 1 student-teacher ratio.
Copper Hills High School has a 27 1 student-teacher ratio.

If your child is finding it difficult to master certain academic skills, you may be considering any number of independent study aids. However, do-it-yourself resources like review workbooks and online tutorials provide your child with very little guidance. When your son or daughter is lost in his or her class, prepackaged educational supplements are rarely enough. Choosing to engage the assistance of a private tutor in Utah provides your child with the chance to interact one-on-one with an experienced educator. Tutors instruct in a way that best fits your student’s style, whether that means incorporating extracurricular interests into lessons or using techniques that appeal to your child’s preferred learning style.

Utah Test Scores
The chart above shows how Utah’s public school students fared on the Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence, more commonly known as SAGE. Students in grades 3-11 were required to take rigorous End-of-Year assessments based on Utah’s Core Standards, which were developed with the input of hundreds of educators statewide and used exclusively in Utah. The computer-based evaluations tested students’ level of knowledge in science, math, and English language arts. The Utah State Board of Education ended SAGE testing at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year, and a new statewide assessment is set to take its place in autumn of 2018.
Whether your child is preparing for statewide assessments or college admissions exams, students of all abilities can benefit from working alongside a tutor in Utah. Tutoring isn’t only for K-12 students, either. College students are great candidates for tutoring, and the state of Utah offers students a great selection of colleges and universities to choose from.
