Posted February 5, 2014

The school has excellent teachers and a friendly staff who often go the extra mile. The principal has previously been a teacher for a self-contained classroom for autistic children and works well with this population. Their weakest area is special ed, often using outdated methods and practices that threaten students and devalue their self-worth. I had to remove my child and enroll him in a private school for him to thrive.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
