My daughter has attended Adams K-1 - we loved our experience! Teachers are fantastic and meet the needs of students at all levels!

The teacher and staff are kind and friendly. I feel my son is safe while he attends. I do wish they spent more energy teaching the quicker learners new material rather then so much repetition and regurgitation, but then all public school are like that.

We had a great experience at Adam's with our two kids who attended K-6th.

Not good for special education. If you have a special needs kid, go to another school.

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.
