Best school I've ever attended. The staff is great and the structure is wonderful. Highly recommend.


Posted July 5, 2004

My daughter just graduated from this great school. Her counsler was the best. She wanted to drop out so many times. I'm so proud of her. They helped her so much. Thank you.

I am not a parent, but I just graduated from Merdian Academy. I have gone to other schools, and dropped out of school for a year.When I went back to school, I went to Meridian Academy, the teachers, counselors, and the principal all gave me the help I needed to graudate. Meridian Academy has the best teachers and best teaching system. If it was not for the staff at Meridian Academy, I would not have been part of the Senior of 2003. Thank you to the staff of Meridian Academy. Tabi

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.
