Moscow High School has quality teachers that care about their students. The principal is very approachable and eager to help and promote a healthy school environment. Moscow High is a great school. Go Bears!

I loved this school! I moved to Moscow for my Junior year and I was nervous becasue it seemed like such a small schoo! It was a lot smaller than the other high schools I have been to. But the people here are so friendly and it is very easy to make friends with people. The teachers have helped me a lot this year. They will help you not only with school work but also with any problems that you have.

It's a fabulous school. The teachers are phenominal and the small class size is really helpful for the students. The fact that the students have to parallel park in the neighborhoods around the school COULD be considered an inconvenience, but in my mind, it is an important skill that they perfect after three years of parking. I love everything about Moscow Senior High School.

An excellent school. The only improvements that could be made would be an increase in the number of foreign languages and art classes.

I think everyone else was being rude. I went to Moscow High and I thought it was a great school. My last year was hard, alot of stuff happened out side of school. Alot of people lost people that meant the world to them and all the faculty at MHS were there for their students and helped us through it. Thats alot more than what other schools would do. They saved the kids that nobody thought would make it. The education you recieve is good too. Its all about what you want to take, and you can take classes at the U of I too if you need harder ones. They are even trying to let you earn college credits by taking some of the harder new classes at Moscow High. Its by far the best High School in Moscow.

I am an alum now attending a fairly demanding liberal arts college on the East Coast, and I agree with the statements on the history teacher and AP English teacher, but they are both gone from MSHS. I have to say that my education here did not prepare me for a challenging college. Please also keep in mind that Idaho requires two years of American History and one year of American Government in their high school curriculum. State, district, and school requirements may inhibit a well-rounded education. Socially, the community at school and surrounding the school are very friendly.

AP History class was excellent due to the teacher, as is the AP English. AP History no longer offered since the teacher retired. The school lacks vision in partnering with the University of Idaho - a short half-mile away, with a schedule that prohibits the kids from taking advantage of dual-enrollment opportunities. They also make it difficult for transfer students - they told us our child would have to 'skip' calculus in order to complete the districts requirements when he transferred in as a junior. On test scores in Idaho, this school may be a '10,' but it should be remembered that Idaho is tied for last in the US for education.

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.
