I have 3 children at Central Canyon and love the staff and the Teachers are the best! The teachers go above and beyond for there students.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 23, 2011

I have three kids attending Central Canyon and overall we have been very happy with this school. The office staff is the best! The teachers actually pay attention and care about the students' progress. Out of the 12 (total) teachers I have dealt with over the years, I am very impressed with how they control the classroom and cater to each child's individual needs. Great teachers make all the difference, but the parents could be more involved in this school program. The only complaint I have (as well as most parents I've spoken to) is the kindergarten schedule. I think everyone would agree that a first-year student would be better off going to school 5 half days instead of the current 2-3 full days each week. I hope the schools budget allows this to change soon.

crowded classrooms which cause short tempered teachers and students who fall behind and repeat grades, there's lots of homework and it is not overviewed or taught in class, rude uncaring princpal, I gave it a shot and I pulled my child out with no regrets.

I have 2 children in this school, one in first grade and one in kindergarden. I am not a fan of this school at all. I think they do the best with what they have and are allowed to. Last year my kindergardner was an older kindergardner and is very smart and I felt like they don't like that at all. They want everyone in a box, all the same. I wish they had some sort of program for those who are ahead. They don't until the fourth grade. They told me we have have many programs for those who fall behind or who don't know English, but nothing for those ahead. The classes are very large, 1st grade anyway. This year my kindergardner has Mrs. Lords who really is amazing. A perfect kindergarden teacher! So I have one child totally happy in kindergarden and one totally bored.

I have 2 children who have attended this school since Kindergarden. Their teacher was wonderful with them. They learned so quickly. However once they got into the upper grades they got less attention from the teacher and more homework that was not applied first in the classroom. I was required to teach them instead of it being an overview of the days work. My daughter had excelled in reading until the start of second grade. She got nothing out of the year. I am currently trying to find a school that has a better curriculum and can teach without the excuse of overcrowding.

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.
