My son was bullied none stop in 2008 at this school. I went to the principal MANY times!! I begged for my son to be moved to a different class. My son completely shut down, wouldn't even write his name on his paper, threw huge fits in the morning B4 school. The principal asked my to stop saying my son was "beat up" in one of the MANY meetings we had. I said "Fine, I would please like my son to STOP being Assaulted!! My son was punched in the stomach, kicked, scratched, given countless wedgies, papers and books would be torn out of his backpack as well. It was such a nightmare!! I used my mothers address, to enroll him in a different school!!

This school has talented teachers at all grade levels. They work hard to challenge all ability levels. Many of the teachers there bring their kids to this school with them! There are SMART Boards in every classroom. This is a great neighborhood school where the staff cares for all students.

This is an amazing school. I am so impressed with the staff at Mountain View Elementary. They are hard working and dedicated. They really work with all the children in terms of self worth, self esteem and excelling in their studies. They are friendly and courtious, not only to parents, but to the children as well. It's obvious that they care a great deal about all the children. I really appreciate all the hard work they do at Mt View.

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.
