There are great teachers at this school who continue to do fantastic work above and beyond their contracts. It's too bad they don't get paid what they deserve.

I think that being able to track my son's progress online is great and I appreciate the service.

This school has not shown adequate yearly progress for three years. The district's solution was to promote the principal to a central administration position. The program is still awful.

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.
