We have 2 kids at Fernan and absolutely love it! The teachers are all very dedicated and involved in school activities. Fernan has so many parent and community events throughout the year which makes it easy to get to know the families. We love the school's STEM focused curriculum, it's beautiful playground and their all school garden.

Fernan is a school filled with committed teachers and an amazing new principal with a lot of vision and energy. My experience has been nothing but positive and I am excited about the possibility of becoming a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) school.

My two kids have/are attending this school and I can't think of any other school I would want to put my childern in. This school has great deversity for my childern to learn from. The teachers and staff are committed to work together to provide an overall safe & educated environment. We are volunteers at this school and enjoy seeing and helping the fernan students. we are happy with the education and support that my childern are getting. And this school has worked hard to recieve an 7 out of 10 rating. We are proud of them and to say our kids go to FERNAN.

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.
