Sucks! Don't waste you time at this trashy school. Everything about it is bad! The school wastes money on things that they don't even need.


Posted March 19, 2014

We've been at White Pine for 4 years now. It was excellent at first, but ever since the change in principals 2 years ago we've seen a steadily decline. Poor leadership has affected the quality of teaching & the way parents & students are treated. There are still a few great teachers, but more & more we're having problems with teachers/staff being rude & disrespectful to kids AND parents. It reached the point this year that we're checking into other schools. A few examples: Two teachers yell & scream at kids all day, one called kids in a 1st grade class "idiots" & told them they have "big fat mouths". That teacher also ripped my head off when I was volunteering. Another just has kids color or watch movies all day. Some don't even have teaching degrees & have taught my kids incorrect information that we have had to re-teach correctly at home. The school touts it's "5-star-school" status, but I'm not seeing 5-star-worthy teaching anymore. If we end up leaving, I don't rule out the possibility of returning someday down the road. However, it won't happen unless a MUCH better principal is selected and the poor & unkind teachers are weeded out or leave.

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.
