My child attended this school for three years and it is ok overall. Not great and not horrible either. They have a few teachers who are only there for the paycheck & create a negative atmosphere for students, but they also have a few great teachers. The rest are average. The grading practices and expectations vary widely from one teacher to the next which makes it difficult for students. Teacher communication with parents is practically non-existent. It's totally up to the parents to contact teachers. There are lots of elective opportunities for kids, but not too many clubs---or at least they aren't publicized much if they have them. If you're considering this school for your child, talk to other parents and find out which teachers to avoid, and be prepared to advocate for your child & be highly involved in what's going on with your child's education.

My daughter and son both attended the Moscow schools for grades K-12. Both participated in g/t in grade school, and various clubs and sports in junior high and high school. Both got a very good education from some very fine teachers. AND both completed Algebra courses with a particularly excellent teacher at Moscow H.S. Both went on to "easy As" at university in their college-level algebra classes. I'm a believer in the Moscow school system and I will always support it in every possible way. By the way, no one in our family is employed by the Moscow school district or any other school district.

A local pvt school in town has really let me down with my ADD son with documented learning disabilities. Natalie Stone with her Special Education background has helped my son find his place which is giving him hope to succeed. He will not be penalized for finding his boundaries bumping into the the guard rails as with his previous school

The administration and staff at this school are great. There are a number of gifted students, and the opportunities for those students are terrific. My son is has completed algebra I,II and geometry and will be ready for trigonometry in 10th grade. The students rank in the top in the state in math competitions and future problem solvers. It's a great small town 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.
