Today the Utah Office of Education released SAGE results and
Comprehensive School Grades for the 2016-2017 school year. We
would like to congratulate the students, faculty, staff, and parents
for another successful year at Fossil Ridge. We are much more
than a SAGE score, or a School Grade, yet it is also important
that we celebrate individual and collective success on state end
of level testing. With that said, the entire Fossil Ridge community
should be very proud of the 2016-2017 results. Fossil Ridge, its
students and faculty have once again earned a USOE School
Grade of "A"! Fossil Ridge is one of only four schools in the
WashingtonCounty School District to earn an "A" grade, and is a
top five mid-level school in the entire state! One of the aspects of
academics that we preach at Fossil Ridge is the critical
Importance of student and teacher growth. This is certainly an
area were our kids continue to excel. We will commit to have high
expectations of our students, we will continue to challenge ALL
students, and we will celebrate individual and collective growth at
Fossil Ridge. "Every Child.Every Day. Whatever It Takes!"
