Posted July 18, 2005

This is a good Primary School (K-5) with some excellent teachers. (Due to changes two years ago we have some new teachers learning OTJ ; most are doing well.) Student to teacher ratio is small to average (my first grader had 17-19 students to 1 good teacher + 3 daily helpers and my fifth grader had 23-24 students to 1 excellent teacher + weekly helpers). Sacajawea stresses respect and discipline and it shows in the classrooms and activities. We will be getting a new principal for this upcoming (2005-2006) school year. The PTO is building, has some GREAT activities and only ONE fundraiser. As a parent (and chauffer) I appreciate this.

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.
