Hi! Right now my boys are in the Jordan school district. One of them is in the ALPS program (an advanced learning program for kids who test high). We are considering a move to Suncrest. Is Alpine a good district? Do they have programs like this? We were told our kids could go to either Alpine or Jordan schools up there but I'm not sure how accurate that information is. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm in Alpine school district. There is an ALL program (advanced learning) that sounds similar to ALPS. You have to test into it. That's for grades 3-6, I think, and then there's another similar program for jr high kids. I don't know about high school. This is a good district, but I don't know if you can choose which district you want or not. You might try calling both school districts and asking them. It might depend where you move to in Suncrest.

Hi there chazcrew... are there any programs for 1st graders (will be in second grade next year) if they are more advanced than the other students in his class?? We are in ASD (Pony Express School) and have been disappointed with how they have handled their school as well as my son: he is very smart and gets bored very easily because he is further along than a lot of the other students which has caused him to be disruptive at times. He is being labeled as having "behavior problems" but is truly just bored. I have tried to work with his teacher and principle but there always seems to be an excuse for not doing anything for him. He is reading at about a 3rd grade level and catches on to math and spelling VERY quickly. Any advice??
