Filer High is excellent because the teachers are here every morning to help the students. There are less students failing classes then any school in this region.

I attended moved to the Filer School District during my freshman year. From the first day I attended Filer High School clear up until I graduated, I enjoyed every minute of it. Filer is a small town therefore it is easy to get to know everybody on a personal level. The teachers there are great and the principal is very open minded and well trained. Beside the fact that Filer is a great place to attend school on an academic level, the sports programs are also very good as well. There is always something to do whether it is sports, music,art, or just school is genral. Filer is a spectacular school and I would highly reccomend to anybody.JS

I attended all of Filer schools, my entire education was gathered there in the small town. I myself loved the school and hope to one day have my children attend there too. Not only in elementary, middle but also in high school. The high school is a friendly place where everyone knows your name. Its hard to be missed, which helps for one on one interaction. This is only one of the qualities that Filer provides. Having great athletic programs is also a wonderful hobbie to take up while attending Filer. Just note that while going to Filer High School you can enjoy yourself in a relaxed but upbeat place where you can somewhat call it home.DB

As a graduate of FHS, I look back on it in a positive light. For the small size of the school, there is a diverse pool of opportunities for students should they go looking for them. The high school is still relatively new and well-kept. As with any school, there are some outstanding teachers and some that are not up to par. Filer takes pride in its activities and supports what it offers. In comparison to other schools in the area of the same size, Filer seems to have equal strength in its programs, as opposed to some strong and some weak.

I attended this school from 1997-2001 and I have mixed reviews. This school has a poor selection of course offerings and it did not challenge me at all. There are some teachers that are really great at Filer, but like many schools there are also teachers that should not be teaching there at all. I have recently learned that many valuable teachers are leaving Filer High School for better school districts and better job opportunities. The principal also did not impress me very much when I attended, and I was the kind of student he knew because of academic achievements not because of disciplinary problems. It appeared that he did not care about the concerns about the teachers or students, but rather was concerned about the image of the school to the outside community and other school districts.

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.
