The results of Sutherland’s academic rankings listed on UtahSchools.org is described as an “objective independent study” by The Spectrum.  Those words come from Bill Fowler, the principal of Tuacahn High School in Washington County and former vice president of student services at Dixie State College. UtahSchools.org shows that Tuacahn High is ranked in the top third of Utah schools when it comes to academic standing.  Katie Christensen, public relations manager for Sutherland, was quoted in the article saying that the rankings are “a way to put a measure on schools.  It makes them accountable to parents who want to see how their child’s school is doing — how they stack up against other schools.”
