The staff ~ especially the teachers, principal and secretary are the best I have seen in a very long time. We moved to the area at the beginning of the year and have enjoyed how attentive and professional the school staff are!!

Ashton Elementary places the children with emphasis on their safety and education as top priority. The teachers truly desire the best and go the extra mile for 'their' children. We in the Ashton community are fortunate and blessed to have our amazing school.

I attended school in Ashton as a child. I remember teachers who cared, friendships I continue to have today and a community who stands behind their children. Now I have a 3rd grader in that same school. Once again I have found truly dedicated teachers and staff, ones who go the extra mile. We are a small school but we are a wonderful school!

It's a great school with great teachers who take the little bit of resources they have and improvise to provide learning to all the kids in the community. The teachers take pride in what they do and want to see every child succeed. The education provided is just as good as any larger school even without the educational opportunities that the larger schools have.


Posted May 14, 2010

I teach there and have children who go to Ashton Elem. The atmosphere feels like home where teachers and staff watch out and care for the children. Been to the big schools, as well as my children. The attention and dedication to the children at Ashton far exceeds what we had in the other schools. Ashton Elementary Rocks!

Small schools seem to get lost in the battle for monies and improvements. They deserve a good education as do the larger populated shcools.

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.
