RMHS is excellent! We moved here from a very small town in Arkansas and the school that my child went to was extremely small. She was terrified to come to such a big school but all the students and staff made her feel so welcome. She is adjusting well to the school. The staff is very friendly to everyone and was very patient when we were getting my daughter enrolled. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a great place for their child(ren). The website is easy to use and the teachers keep up with the grades and attendance.

We came from a "great" school in Washington - this one is so much better! As always there are a few exceptions but the teachers and staff are Fantastic. From athletics to arts to academics, the programs offered to the students are way above average opportunities. My husband has taken a job out of the area and we have chosen to commute long distance so that our child can finish at this school. As hard as it is to move high schools, we would have transferred her if we didn't feel so strongly, that she has her best opportunity for a good future if she graduates from Rocky Mountain High School.

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.
