Firth is a special school. Almost everyone knows each other by name. Academic standard is high, with much teacher/student/community interaction. The standard for integrity is also very high. We as a community are very blessed to have so little crime in our schools. The only down side to a small school is the amount of classes offered. It is difficult for a student to get the classes he needs to compete with the larger schools for college. All in all, Firth is a great place to raise children. Sheila Kibler

I want to thank the FHS for everything that you have done for me. I wanted to thank especially Peggy hunt. THe school means everything to me and has taught me a lot. Keep up the good work and never give up on the students. Keep encouraging them even if they seem they won't make it. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Without your help and spirit I wouldn't have been here now, but I thank you.

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.
