The Provo City School District is a school district in Provo, Utah, United States, which has boundaries that coincide with those of the city.[1]


Provo City School District offices, August 2016

The school district is run by a school board elected by city residents. The districts for electing the school board members are drawn by the Provo City Council. There are currently 17,800 students enrolled.[2]</ref>

The district operates two traditional high schools, an alternative high school, two middle schools, thirteen elementary schools, and a web-based school that serves all grade levels. The district continues to have a positive influence on the community by offering both traditional and proven non-traditional education to its students. These non-traditional alternatives include preschool training for disabled students, adult high school completion, the largest selection of on-line courses in the state and concurrent enrollment where students can earn high school and college credits simultaneously. Programs such as advanced placement, special education, music, career technology, elementary dual language, multicultural programs, gifted and talented programs and many other enrichment programs in all curriculum areas are offered by the district. The district has strong technical and foreign language programs in both traditional and on-line offerings, and is one of the few Districts in the state to offer elementary foreign languages.

Opportunities for the Gifted and Talented

Magnet schools

Students who qualify are invited to attend the Center for Accelerated Studies (CAS) for students in grades four through six. This special school caters to the needs of the profoundly gifted. The Gifted Magnet Program in the district is for students in grades seven through eight and provides services to students who score in the top ten on a highly difficult test by giving them access to high school-level material while remaining with their middle school-aged peers. This program has been updated and is now folded into the two middle schools in the district: Dixon Middle School and Centennial Middle School.[5]
