This School is Horrible! The teachers dont help kids, dont have postive attitudes and make their kids feel stupid and worthless! If you have a different school option, i guarantee its better than East Valley!

I am a student at East, but I do have to say that they need to work a little bit more on their discipline. All of the teachers are nice and you really learn a lot more. I went to South last year and I would have to say that I have learned a whole bunch more at East then I did at South.

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.
