I have a daughter and a son that goes to Eagle Hills and I absolutely love it I moved from a school district that did nothing for my son that has learning disabilities and Eagle Hills started working on getting him the help he needs before they even started school there and the curriculum is amazing my daughter was in an all day Kindergarten and now only in half of a day and is learning more than she was the only downfall is that I wish morning kindergarten got to eat lunch before they came home but overall the school is wonderful the principal is always active with the kids praising them for effort and celebrating birthdays it is amazing I have never seen a principal so involved and I also love the fact that when I have a question for the teachers they always get back to me and are always able to answer my questions yes I would recommend this school to anybody especially with my bad history with another school

I feel so fortunate to have found Eagle Hills Elementary for my two daughters to attend. We have been at Eagle Hills for 4 years and it is a wonderful school. The teachers are so caring, innovative, and truly want the best for each child. I volunteer on a weekly basis in the classroom and I always come away very impressed with the teaching. The principal is very involved, knows all the kids names, rewards great behavior (has monthly Breakfasts and Lunches to honor kids), very involved with the day-to-day duties (drop-off and pick-up, directing traffic) making sure the students are safe. I have felt my daughters have been given extra opportunities to excel. I would highly recommend Eagle Hills Elementary!

Both of my kids have gone to this school the last several years. My daughter is in 4th G and my son in 1st G. Both are avid readers and have had excellent teachers. I like their character program and tips and I really like their counselor - she is awesome with kids. The PE teacher is amazing and inspires kids to be active with Jump Rope Club, Jump Rope for Heart, the Walkathon, etc. I highly recommend this school!

Eagle Hills is an amazing school filled with teachers and staff that geniunely care about your child! They all recognize that kids are not "one size fits all" and go out of their way to help your child build skills and achieve success. The school itself is a neighborhood school filled with families from diverse stories and backgrounds. Eagle Hills has a real community and family feel. When you walk in the doors or go to an event, you can feel passion and committment that that everyone involved with the school has. I am so thankful that we found Eagle Hills Elementary School and wouldn't want my kids to go anywhere else!

I have had children going to Eagle Hills for 7 years now and am very pleased. I find the principal very easy to talk to and involved with the children. The teachers and staff are friendly and keep a watchful eye out for their safety. I would like to see a stronger math program but feel it is my responsibility as a parent to supplement any area I feel lacking. As a parent who volunteers, there is always a place for me to help out in class and with school functions. I am very happy with our experience at Eagle Hills.

I think that Eagle Hills is a GREAT school!!!! The teachers are very caring and genuine! I believe they have their students best interests at heart! There is a great group of parent volunteers and the PTO goes above and beyond!! The Principal is GREAT and is always friendly and very hands on with the students. I have had kids in this school for 4 years now and I have never had an issue that wasn't handle promptly and effectively!!! My daughter started Kindergarten this year and was EXTREMELY hesitant to do so. Her teacher is absolutely AMAZING!! She had my little girl LOVING school by the first 15 minutes of her first day of school!! My daughter positively loves her teacher and school!!! I would absolutely recommend Eagle Hills to anyone!

I had 7 years of disappointment being a parent of 2 students at this school. I was greatly disappointed by my encounters with the principal. He continued to go from bad to worse, being defensive, unapproachable, uncooperative, uncaring, and unwilling to consider the children's interests. When I've approached the principal about concerns, he's defensive & more concerned with his reputation, than with solving problems. There are teachers at this school that have gotten many complaints from many families, including myself, and NOTHING is done; except for a backlash of disrespect from the principal & admin. staff, if you speak up. This school's atmosphere is negative & uncaring. When my youngest child was attending this school (2009), my child was crying every day before school not wanting to go. We changed schools, my child loved to go, and in 1 month jumped an entire grade level in reading.

Our kids attended this school for several years but we transferred them last year. Poor teachers are not removed, even after years of complaints to the district by dozens of parents. Bullying is rampant, even though it is stated that it is not tolerated. Accelerated kids are not encouraged to excel. The principal is ineffectual and defensive if problems are pointed out.

I went to Eagle Hills and was very excited to learn my kids would as well. Our experience has been amazing. My son is an avid reader and is in 1st grade.. His teacher this year and last were both awesome in the social devel and academic. My daughter has a completely different teacher and I am more than empressed with her as well. My daughter who is in K is already starting to write on her own and read very independently... as well as adding numbers. If I had to pick one area that needed work it would be in the assembly or more over the kids doing things for parents to watch. There really is none of that.. We had a sorta Christmas breakfast last year and that was ran poorly.and my daughter went to abreakfast that was better but not by much. Over all love the school and staff

I can't imagine a better school for my children than Eagle Hills Elementary. The teachers are outstanding and I can't imagine a principal who is more involved than the principal here. He does everything from taking kids to the school nurse to supervising the buses unloading every morning. He came to our son's kindergarten class and read The Polar Express at Christmas! There always seem to be parents volunteering in the classroom, and there are more than enough people supervising the playground. The teachers in the kindergarten are teaching what I feel to be first grade level skills. We are very happy with our experience at this school and are thankful that we have such a great place for our kids learn.

While almost all of the staff we came in contact with at this school were very friendly and helpful. Overall we still found this school experience disappointing. During the numerous times we volunteered in the classrooms of both of our children my husband and I found the atmosphere chaotic. It didn't seem to be a calm learning environment at all. The computer lab was the worst, it felt like total bedlam. The principal did not come across to us as proactive. On a few of our interactions with the principal he seemed more defensive than concerned with trying to resolve any of our concerns. We did have some pleasant experiences at this school but have decided to transfer our children to another school this next year.

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.
