Outstanding teachers, principal, programs, everything! This school has been a delightful experience for my wife and I, and our kids have loved attending this elementary! The classwork and homework is well structured, and our kids have excelled from these great teachers. In my opinion, Longfellow is the benchmark to compare all others!

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.
