Riverglen teachers are always so quick to email me back when questions or concerns come up regarding my 7th grader..my daughter struggles in some classes and the teachers always help her the way she needs it so thank u to the staff at riverglen

Riverglen is a great school overall. All of the teachers work very hard at including ALL children in their classrooms. The school has some work on setup for children with disabilities, as there is still separate classrooms segregating some students from the population which is not inclusive. Again, if pushed, the teachers are wonderful at attempting to accommodate all the children. Communication with parents is very limited. Daily announcements are rarely posted, and unless the kids share, little is known other than grades and assignments posted on Fusions by the teachers.

Riverglen is an excellent academic school with great teachers. Communication is non-existant, both from the school and the teachers. The school is VERY clicky and lacks principal/school leadership.

I have to agree there is very little notification/involvement for parents. Which is very sad for a school with such good potential. There lacks good comunication with teachers. When I email the teachers I get very little response back if any response at all

Riverglen Junior High is an excellent school with a dedicated staff, clear curriculum and expectations, and a sense of community geared to help everyone succeed.

Accountibility for the principal or vice principal is very poor. Notification/involvement for parents is at an all time low. Very dissapointing for such a promising enviroment.

Riverglen should show great respect for Dr. Kole. This woman goes out of her way to keep her students involved in her class and has never ceased to amaze me with the things that she does for her students. Dr. Kole is the reason that my child gets to school every day. I have highest regards for Dr. Kole, thank you for having her there.

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.
