So far i cant rate you my daugher kiara just started first grade ay Shadow hills. So far im disappointed no one has contacted me to tell me how my daughter is doing, or sent me a latet welcoming us to the school, i know nothing about her teachers, what she is learning or anything and om pretty mad about this. I at least expected an email or something. They took my daughters Boise school district issued agenda which i encouraged teachers at Valley View to use to send notes home in on kiara progress either that ir they emailed me. So until you contact me you are one. A very disappointed mother

Our oldest daughter was part of the first class at Shadow Hills in first grade in 1997. We are back with our two youngest and can honestly say that the quality of teachers and instruction and caring and dedication has not changed a bit in all these years. We are very blessed to have such quality for our family!

Strong school; I've been impressed by the staff, the teachers, the programs offered, extracurricular activities, field trips, etc. When my child has any issues, I'm contacted immediately by a staff member or teacher seeking to resolve the issue appropriately. Great 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.
