I am very unhappy with the admination they don't knowaddy when I child has not been in class at all and they say that there is no bullying when my child comes home crying saying she has been bullied. I feel that all they care about its the pay check and what they are going to do after work out over the weekend and not the kids. I feel that the children are more important they.Just really don't care about the kids education at all Very unhappy with 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.
