Several months ago, we had extreme issues at school. I was quite impressed with the Ross Elementary leadership by the Principal over the situation. I learned that the office staff did not hesitate to immediately correct the issues. I think that this school creates great extra curricular activities for the children like exploring pioneer days, and doing performances as a historical leader. The only thing that I would like to see changed is the school's policy on not allowing children into Choir or Band until the 5th or 6th grade. I have a very musically talented child, and I do not think it is appropriate to have a grade limit on learning music. I wish she could be promoting her talent in school, as much as outside of school. Overall, I am pleased to keep my child at Ross until she moves on to middle school.

The District as a whole is horrific!! From DISTRICT LEADERS TO Principles bully the kids, they dont treat "special needs" We have fought with all we have to get our child put back on an IEP but, they won't help at all.

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.
