Currently, it is still a sad state of affairs. The principal controls every second of every day's lesson. Teachers teach reading concepts from scripted cards, rather than to student ability.

I attended Grand View Elem. when I was little and for sure the school district has changed. A few of the teachers are still left from when I was in school but most of the good ones have been ran off. The turn over in teacher rate is horrable. Many of the teachers this year don't have a clue in the class room. We as a district need to wake up and depand for better teachers. Teachers that want to teach who aren't there just for a pay check. I'm very disapointed with the whole picture of the district. If there was a close place to send my kids I sure would.

I think that the teachers for the most part are great but they are led by 2 women who dont care what the parents of the students would like to have in the school. Our children need to learn in a setting that comfortable and fun and they are trying to make our school one that is only for academics rather than one that teaches a wide range of things academics are important but so is art PE and field trips.

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.
