The success of Crimson View Elementary can be contributed to an entire school community who work together for the benefit of each child. When the school opened in 2013, the students, faculty, parents, and community members came together to focus on what was best for students. Through much collaboration, a common vision and positive school culture were established.

The school has enriched student learning through an instructional approach that includes STEM best practices and an emphasis on 21st Century Skills. All students are fortunate to have an iPad or Chromebook to use for learning to further their development of 21st Century Skills. Furthermore, Crimson View has been recognized as a Utah Platinum STEM school, which is the highest STEM recognition offered by the state of Utah.

In addition, many partnerships have been established with local agencies and businesses. With the help of all stakeholders, Crimson View Elementary has established a culture of academic success and an environment where students are developing the skills needed for their future.
