The teachers are amazing and really care about the students. They take the time and make the time to work with students and help them succeed. My daughter is in first grade and I wouldn't change schools for anything because of what I have seen so far.

I had a child in sixth grade last year. The male 6th grade teacher was by far the best teacher my child has ever had!

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.
