 About Copper Mountain Middle

Copper Mountain Colts EmblemWe are the COLTS! Copper Mountain Middle School is a beautiful 26-acre school in Herriman, Utah. Our school is located on Anthem Park Blvd with the beautiful Oquirrh Mountains in the background. The enrollment of the school is around 1250 and growing every day. Not only is Copper Mountain beautiful; it is also energy efficient and safe

CMMS is focused on high standards and providing the best education for our students. We believe the purpose of grading is to communicate with students and parents about the achievement and mastery of specific learning goals. Copper Mountain Middle uses Standards-Based Grading to ensure each student reaches mastery. Students will know exactly what to expect for their assessments and where they need to be for mastery. Teachers will use data collected through Mastery Connect to arrange tutoring, mentoring, and intervention.

Follow school happenings on our Facebook site, Twitter and our website. This is just another way we can communicate with the community and ultimately, help our students achieve great things! We are so excited to be part of this amazing Herriman and South Jordan community!

Student Achievement

SAGE
The Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence (SAGE) is a collection of computer-adaptive assessments given to Utah students beginning in grade 3. SAGE 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.

SAGE assessments were developed through a joint effort on the part of Utah teachers, parents, test development experts, and the Utah State Board of Education. SAGE assessments provide information to assist in determining students’ educational progress towards being ready for college and careers upon completion of secondary school.

PACE
PACE is an acronym given to Utah’s 2013 ten-year education and economic development plan. The plan includes four main components: Prepare young learners, Access for all students, Complete certificates and degrees, and Economic success (PACE). PACE Accountability Reports provide information regarding a school’s progress towards achieving components of the Governor’s education and economic development plan.

In lower and middle grades, PACE Accountability Reports display information regarding kindergarten readiness and SAGE assessment results for grades 3, 6, and 8. At the high school level, SAGE reports include graduation rates, ACT results, and college credit earned concurrent enrollment, advanced placement (AP), career and technical education (CTE), and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs.
