Burch Creek Elementary comes from a rich heritage stretching back almost 170 years when Daniel Burch Jr. and his family helped settle the area now known as South Ogden. Our school is built on the former site of the old South Ogden Jr. High School facing the majestic mountains of the Wasatch Front.
Opening in the fall of 2016, Burch Creek Elementary draws upon the lasting legacy of the pioneers who formed this community so long ago, while building a new one that honors the traditions and values that have made educating our children a foundation of this community from the start.
With an expected enrollment of approximately 600 students, along with 65 teachers and staff, Burch Creek also boasts full day kindergarten, an awesome afterschool program, an active choir, and on-site Family Resource Center, which provides quality resources to help parents and children in the community.

A magnet program in pre-engineering and several honors and remedial courses are also offered to meet individual student needs. Competitive athletic programs are available for boys and girls.
