I went to BHS and it was an okay school. It does have a good number of after school programs and a variety in clubs and organizations.

I loved all the activities you can be involved in and the teacher student relationships.

Burley High School is outstanding. It has the most magnificent 'Fine Arts Center' in the state of Idaho--a donation of $1.5M by a local patron helped. Burley has a professional technical center that is in the top two in the state. They offer CAD, Health Occupations, Automotive, IT, etc. The teachers are of top quality. I lived in the best district in Arizona and this this school would fit in.

I grew up in los angeles, i think this school for the area compares equally to the big city schools. The academics are good, there is a wide variety of proforming arts available, along with classes like,welding, auto mechanics. I have noticed a lot more parent sbeing involved with their teenage kids schooling here than in l.A.My kids have had more opportunities here than they ever would have elsewhere. They love it here and feel very safe and compfortable in the school. Every teacher i have talked to has taken an interest in the kids not only in their aademics but in their personal life as well. It is much more personal here. I have only hate one complaint and that was with a teacher. Still to been worked out. Everyone here does their best to get the kids graduated, not just pushed through.

No matter what anyone else says about Burley High School, this is one of the better schools in the state. Test scores are high, teacher-student ratio is average, and students feel at home. There's no worry of bullies or pressure from other students. This is a well-rounded school with a lot to offer in such a small package. I, myself, would consider moving back to Burley after college just for the experience. You learn so much at this school, it should be in the nations Top 10. Amidst the cries of negativity from rivaling schools, this is the best. Compared to other schools in the area (Minico High, Declo High, Oakley High, Raft River High) Burley, by far, beats the others. So much more is available to students and career advancements available if you do, in fact, go to Burley High School.

I believe that Burley High is one of the best schools in the district. it has wonderful students with great school spirit. Students can attend school without worring if they are going to get jumped at school. I believe that this is a wonderful school to allow kids to attend. It forces students to keep good grades in order to play sports and it rewards their students for their grades.

And, don't even get me started on the school district! it's the worst in the whole entire world! but, that's all i gots ta say!

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.
