Welcome to the new Majestic Elementary Arts Academy. Majestic will embark on an innovative learning path in the 2021-2022 school year.  Music and Visual Arts will be integrated into your child’s daily education next year, along with our current STEAM focus (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math).

Student Achievement

RISE
In 2018-19, the name for the statewide grades 3-8 assessment was changed from SAGE to RISE (Readiness. Improvement. Success. Empowerment).  In all other aspects, the assessment remains the same.  RISE is a collection of computer-adaptive assessments given to Utah students beginning in grade 3 (science in grade 4) in English language arts (ELA), math and science.  RISE assessments provide questions that assess students’ ability to apply higher-order thinking skills and better emulate real tasks students may encounter in education and in life.

RISE assessments were developed through a joint effort on the part of Utah teachers, parents, test development experts, and the Utah State Board of Education (USBE).  The RISE assessment, together with the state’s suite of assessments in grades K-12, provide information to assist in determining students’ progress towards being prepared for college and careers upon completion of secondary school. Due to the school soft closure in March 2020, scores are not available for the 2019-20 school year.

Test Subject 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19 2019-20
Language Arts 28.4% 29.4% 31.5% N/A
Science 33.8% 27.4% 39.4% N/A
Mathematics 34.3% 32.5% 32.6% N/A

School Accountability Report Cards
School Accountability Report Cards are issued for each public school once a year by the State of Utah.  The 2017-18 school year marks the first report card under this new accountability system.  Elementary and middle school report cards have four main grade categories: achievement, growth, English learner progress, and growth of the lowest 25%.  High schools have one additional grade category entitled postsecondary readiness.  For the 2017-18 school year, achievement and growth scores are calculated from the statewide end-of-year SAGE assessment.  In future years, achievement and growth will be calculated from the new Readiness. Improvement. Success. Empowerment. (RISE) assessment for grades 3-8 and the Utah Aspire Plus assessment for grades 9-10.  The English learner progress category score is calculated from the annual administration of the WIDA test, which assesses students’ language proficiency in English.  For high schools, the postsecondary readiness score is calculated from 11th grade performance on the ACT, advanced coursework performance, and graduation rates.  The state’s School Accountability Report Cards are intended to inform educators, parents, and community stakeholders about school performance as they work collaboratively to improve student outcomes. Due to the school soft closure in March 2020, scores are not available for the 2019-20 school year.
