We are moving to Daybreak. Our kids have always gone to private schools but we are considering public. Is Jordan School District good? Any input would be great.

Run don't walk to the nearest private or charter school in the area. Jordan school district is 10 years behind with overwhelmed facilities, and little ability to change in the near future. Our shool in Daybreak opened 1 year ago. From the day the door opened, classes were taught in the hallway and any available open space. We now have 4 portable classrooms and the school is still crowded. The ciriculum is lagging at best and the legislators are considering giving 9 million dollars earmarked for education to the soccer team to build a stadium.

I don't think the Jordan School District is bad. What it is is overcrowded, and suffers from problems caused by that. You can find some reviews and stats for individual schools in the district on this link.

Waterford School (Private) is near that area. If you can pony up the cash I'd send them there.

No, Jordan School District is not good. (It's probably not *terrible*, but it's not good!) So many teachers quit - the district no longer offers benefits to many of them - that they had to hire student teachers full-time. It is a good example of what the Utah legislature is doing to its schools by underfunding them.

Waterford is an excellent school. But hello, pricey!

Jordan School District is, I think, the largest in the state, isn't it? At any rate, it is definitely overwhelmed at the moment, with all the new growth. If I were to move into the district, I would commit to doing a lot of one-on-one with my kids at home to compensate.
