Salt Lake Center for Science Education Reviews

What I really liked about my school is the many experiences you have to explore outdoors but also making that outdoor experience into a learning experience. An example of this is going to Rio Mesa to work on a science project. Another thing I really liked was the teachers and how flexible they were to help students. They are always available to help students when needed. One big thing about SLCSE is that they have implemented methods in which they can be involved throughout the community. This has allowed for people to come into our school and utilize our resources but to also receive help. They have done this by going out and picking up trash to clean up around the community, providing people in need with jackets, collecting canned food, going to the homeless shelter and providing food as well as helping store the food, and last year peer mediation was implemented to help students resolve conflicts to improve interactions with students.

I absolutely loved this school because the teachers genuinely care about you andante every student to grow and succeed. The course material and hands on experience is fun and intreating. The teachers are always engaging and try to change their teaching styles to fit everyones need. The downsides to this school is that there isn't as many extracurricular activities to do. They do incorporate a lot of STEM programs and opportunities but they definitely don't have other options that touch base with common sports or clubs. This school is very small and therefore the children there are able to get more attention, but I would highly recommend this school to any kid that loves science, math, and is someone who eventually wants to go into that field. There are a lot of opportunities for sciences as this school.
I highly recommend Salt Lake Center for Science Education to all prospective students and their parents. The teachers are exceptional and provide instruction using a variety of mediums and settings. During the time my daughter spent at SLCSE not only did she receive an exceptional educational, she also received credit for participating in a research project at the University of Utah based upon a teacher's recommendation, and went bird banding with Hawk Watch. The teachers at SLCSE go above and beyond what is expected of them as well as creating a safe and mutually respecful environment in which to learn.
