Both my boys went to Kootenai, the oldest for K-4th grade. He needed extra help and it was given right away in Kindergarten. I credit that early intervention with his reading for how well he is doing today. What's great about this school as well is they value citizenship and give awards to students each month for displaying a particular value (e.g. friendship). That's something not all schools do. It gives kids something to be proud of at school besides academics, which is important for all kids, but especially if your child struggles. In addition, all the kids in every grade get PE and there is plenty of recess time, even before school. That's something that can be hard to find in a school that also has great academics. In addition, they have a lot of technology (iPads, laptops, Smartboards, etc) in the classrooms. Their discipline policy is also a very clear and positive system that is followed consistently by all the staff. Overall, Kootenai is a great school where kids are allowed to be kids and learn in a positive environment.
