Kanesville Elementary School is a Utah Elementary school with an enrollment of approximately 750 students. Kanesville is located in West Haven, Utah which is approximately 35 miles north of Salt Lake City, west of the Wasatch Mountains in northern Utah. The convergence of the Weber and Ogden Rivers is located inside the northeastern portion of the city. The city is bordered on the east by Ogden, on the south by Roy, on the west by Hooper, and on the north by Marriott-Slaterville. Kanesville Elementary is part of the Weber School District and includes grades Kindergarten through sixth grade with a Life Skills Unit. West Haven is a city in Weber CountyUtah. It was incorporated on July 1, 1991, combining theunincorporated communities of Kanesville and Wilson.

The first settlers in what would become Kanesville arrived in 1868. At the time the area was known as Northwest Hooper. Kanesville Elementary opened its doors in 1977 and still remains standing with a new addition added in 2009. A newsletter from the city's mayor in 2009 noted that West Haven was the fastest growing city in Utah in 2008. The predominant single-family home nature of the residential areas is being joined by more multi-story multi-family dwellings and condominiums. Some of the old rural nature survives in patches, including farm homes dating back well into the 19th Century, and there are still some working farms raising both crops and animals.

Kanesville Elementary feeds into Rocky Mountain Junior High and Fremont High School.

Hooper Elementary School is located in the southwest corner of Weber School District and is only several miles from the Great Salt Lake.

The current enrollment is approximately 680 students in grades K-6th with a teaching staff of 30 certified teachers.

Hooper schools were originally consolidated into one central school in 1905 on what is now the corner of 5500 S and 5900 W. It was remodeled in 1938. In 1970 this school was demolished and the present school was built. In 2007 Weber District added a 22,200 square foot addition which includes a gymnasium, computer lab, and ten additional classrooms to the school.

Hooper Elementary provides engaging learning experiences through the Project Lead the Way program and promotes the arts by way of the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program. Other opportunities that students may participate in include robotics club and choir. We believe in a whole child approach to education that ensures each child is engaged, supported, and challenged.

Freedom Elementary opened its doors in the fall of 2002 amidst a groundswell of patriotism (following the events of September 11th) and pride (as Utah prepared to host the Winter Olympics). 700 students, the first to be called Freedom Patriots, filled the hallways that first year with all the hopes, dreams and promise of our nation’s future.

From the beginning, the name “Freedom” has held special significance. To us, our school’s name is a reminder “of the values of diversity and liberty that we cherish and celebrate…it also represents the character traits of pride and nobility demonstrated by our founding fathers.” Those associated with our school feel a sense of responsibility, duty, and devotion that accompanies the privilege of being a Patriot, knowing our name has been born of service and sacrifice.

Built at a cost of $9,000,000 and sited on 15 acres on the eastern edge of Hooper, between 5500 South and Howard Slough, Freedom grew as rapidly as the neighborhood that surrounded it and soon swelled to over 900 students, prior to a boundary shift in 2009. Our current enrollment, which stands at 730, continues to grow, as the community fills in around us.

Our staff of 65 include: teachers, aides/paraprofessionals, secretaries, cooks, and custodians, along with a school counselor, media specialist, school nurse, speech/language pathologist, school crossing guards, and many other support personnel. In addition to our staff, we have many other school community members, who are vital to helping our students learn and grow. These include: Foster Grandparents, the Freedom PTA, School Community Council, our community business partners, along with approximately 50-70 other volunteers who are helping in our classrooms, reading center, and throughout the school on a daily basis.

In addition to providing comprehensive, core curriculum-based learning to students in kindergarten through 6th grade, we also provide differentiated instruction and special education services, including services to students with severe needs in our functional life skills classroom.

Country View was built in 1979 in, what was at that time, open space, hence the name. Since that time, many subdivisions have been created and we are now in the heart of several great communities. Over 550 students, from three different areas, (Hooper, Roy, and West Haven) attend school at Country View, which includes grades K-6. We also have two sessions of Head Start. With 26 teachers and a wonderful staff, we are very much a student-centered school. After graduating 6th grade our students attend Rocky Mountain Jr. High, and then Freemont High to finish their education in the Weber School District.

We are highly focused on reading and math, along with the other essential subjects that will help our students succeed in life. We are technologically competitive, with two computer labs; and a document camera and SMART board or slate in every classroom. We work hard to ensure that all students are safe and secure, and to help them gain confidence and knowledge in order to flourish in their educational pursuits.

Our mantra is “Taking Pride in All You Do,” which stresses to the students to do their best. Our mascot is the Colt which represents a strong will. We are very focused on being “green.” Recycling and planting trees are part of our charge. We are very proud of the students and faculty at our school, and we continue to strive together toward our goal of excellence in education and sound preparation for success throughout life.

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.

Wahlquist Junior High School is located in Farr West, Utah and serves over 1000 students from the communities of Farr West, Plain City, Harrisville, West Weber, West Warren, and Marriott/Slaterville. The school was built in 1941 and served 300 students at that time. In 1950, the west wing was dedicated and the school became a junior high with grades 7, 8 and 9. Because of growth and a changing curriculum, a third addition was added to the building in 1962. Several adjustments have been made to the school boundaries over the years to accommodate the growth in population throughout the area. The ninth grade feeds into Fremont High School.

The staff at Wahlquist includes 48 certified employees and 26 full- or part-time secretaries, para-professionals, cooks and custodians. Because of our rural setting, most students (approximately 95%) are bused to and from WJHS each day. Students have access to a traditional junior high school curriculum, guided by the Utah State Core. 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.
