I'd honestly have to say this school is really something great. On my first day, I remember was introduced to both the Principle, and the Vice Principle, and I noticed that almost all the teachers there, actually cared for your well being. The Pre- AP classes I was enrolled in were pretty challenging, and I liked that. I got the help from the teachers when I most needed it, and they often called my parents not in result of me getting in trouble, but because they wanted to let them know that I was being successful. This school truly is excellent, and I hope your experience is as good as mine.

I thought VMS was really cool. Well, at least I had a pleasant experience there. Yes I agree that the connection between teachers and parents is lacking, but the connection between the pupils and the teachers is pretty strong. On Open House, the parents may speak with the parents, however. Overall, I really liked this school and I learned a lot. Thanks, Mr. Lowe.

Our son attended Vallivue Middle School for 2 years. He had a good experience. He grew academically and enjoyed the extra curricular activities. We appreciated the efforts of the staff. Chuck and Patti Ward

communication with the school and the teachers is highly lacking. Safety is and issue as well for me.

I am moving to a different district (Meridian) due to the unpleasant experience at VMS. I am unhappy about the communication between the parents and teachers. I am unhappy with the disciplinary standards at the school. I did have a positive experience with the VP, but overall I am very disappointed. VMS is a hostile environment for kids, I would encourage other parent to look for other options.

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.
