This school seems like it has gone down hill. Full of problem children and the principal is a joke. Instead of trying to fix the problem, it's avoided and the child goes straight to punishment or gets sent home. My child is currently attending and I will be switching schools as soon as possible.

Great teachers! Great environment! Have had 4 of my kids at this school for all grades and they've been very happy there.

North Elementary has been a great experience for my sons which both have attended. The teachers there are wonderful and the cirriculum is challenging. They have pushed my sons to excell andn they currenlty are in the upper part of their classes now. I would fully recommend the school for anyone that is coming into mountain home.

I am so pleased with North Elementary. I have a special needs child who has struggled at all of the schools she has been to. North Elementary is the first school that has successfully addressed her learning disability. She was performing at grade level for the first time within 6 months of enrollment. I have found the teachers extremely caring and great at keeping the lines of communication open. This school also has the most active parent group in the community. There are so many fun activities offered through the parent group that keep education fun. I also appreciate that the school is serious about enforcing the rules that have been made (one such rule: visitors are absolutely not admitted into the school without checking in at the office first-I know they take the safety of my child seriously).

This is a wonderful school. My 2 boys went there for 3 years before we moved to another State. We were very satified w/ the education they received there. Wish we were still there.

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.
