I will be happy when my child is no longer in this school. They do not care about your child learning and only are there to get the check. If your child needs additional help, you are told "everything is on the internet" then you go and look and not everything is included, therefore child suffers and has to always be making up work. I have three kids on my street and all will have to attend summer school due to low grades.

It was hard giving one star on this school, that speaks so highly of them selves. When they don't help the children with really any part of education. They want a paycheck that's the only reason why the teachers are there. I'm not going to say anything else cause nothing I have to say is nice.

The teachers seem to only want a paycheck. I asked my childs math teacher if tjey were available before or after school or knew of tutors to help with Algebra ans he told me and my child to search "you tube" for help. Really? Doesn't surprise me as another teacher told me she doesn't have time to answer emails from parents or grade most of the work sitting on her desk, my childs report card showed a F and missing work. My child told me she turned it in. So I went to the teacher with principal in tow to confront her. Sure enough she had a HUGE stack or ungraded papers from many students. Grades were changed and she got an A. Wish teachers wanted to help kids succeed and not just collect a paycheck.SAD

Friendly, caring staff with proactive leadership from the administration. The middle school has recently taken over the building that was the old high school. Some of the buildings are quite new (less than 5 years old) and there have been many updates on the older buildings, making a very roomy and modern campus. I like the way they separate the sixth graders from the older grades (including lunch and electives). They also have eight (yes, 8!) periods each day, giving each studen a great deal of options and flexibility for their students.

Staff and administration do not seem to be interested in students success. School seems to be more of a 'holding tank' for the kids than a school supporting their academic achievement and learning. Teachers are very difficult to work with and not responsive.

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.
