In regard to the previous complaint about staff not enforcing the "uniform" policy- I'm glad they didn't. This should have never happened in the first place. Borah has a free and reduced rate of 80 percent. This would have been a burden on many families, including ours to have to purchase these uniforms. I appreciate the new principal recognizing this and being lenient on the policy. He has stepped in and turned this struggling school around quickly. The teachers are fantastic and care about students. The culture at this school is improving!

We have been at Borah for 4 years.this is our 5th. Borah is a great school with, again a few exceptions. great Teachers with a few exceptions. It is difficult when a "school" policy is made BUT the policy is not complied with nor is it enforced by the "new" Principal OR staff. The school decided on "Borah School T-Shirts" as a "uniform" for the children in addition to certain pant/skirt restriction. It was decided after several meetings the previous year. Many Parents disagreed BUT never attended meetings to debate and complain at that time. They just never sent their children in the proper uniform to school. The "new" principal never supported this decision for the one year trial period. I asked him several times what he was teaching these children by not complying for the year. he stated he had better things to take care. I say IF a "rule" is made, follow it. Dispute it and work to change it but to completely disregard is unexceptionable. Bullying is on the rise here also. Staff say this is not tolerated but other than "time out" the bully is left to do their worst. I hope this year is different as I DO NOT wish to be called to the school to do "their" jobs.

We have just started Borah. We like the staff and small classroom size. My son loves his new teacher!

The teachers are fantastic and keep very close contact with parents. The weekly newsletters come from both the school and the teachers and they keep you up to date. My only complaint in the access on the back road during the winter but then again, this is north Idaho!
