Les Bois Jr. High is an amazing school to go to,because they teach you what that they expect you to do, and they get you ready for high school. The teacher, staff, and the students are friendly and there is not a lot of bulling in the school. I would recommend going to Les Bois Jr. High. -Submitted by a student


Posted March 5, 2014

At Les Bois I constantly feel outcasted. However this is common in the Boise School District. Some teachers (not to name names) do not take care properly of assignments due. They throw something at you with a due date and expect you to know what to do. So basically, if you aren't a straight A student with perfect Abercrombie &Fitch clothing you are outcasted from any social group at all. Just personal experience.

My child has loved his experience here. Teachers are willing to help when issues do arise. My only knock would be that teachers don't update the assignments and grades online regularly enough but I think you find that at most schools.

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.
