This is a fun friendly school that really cares. The teachers always stay in contact which is a huge plus. However the best thing is that my kids hate to miss school even one day, and they are learning a whole lot.
I am a parent of two boys who have been going to the Idaho Arts Charter School since kindergarten. My oldest son has some physical challenges which does not allow him to be able to play sports, which seem to be the "norm" in main stream schools. So when I learned about a school that focused on the arts, I was very excited. This I thought would give my son a opportunity to get involved in activities that he can do physically. The teachers for both my boys have been wonderful to work with, helping them to grow to be good students. The school has opened their mind to all types of art and culture while giving them a good education.
My children have been attending the school since it opened, and have watched it blossom into a venue that has far exceeded my expectations. Grades 1-6 are top notch. The teachers care about my children. They are highly qualified and competent. They show genuine interest in the unique aptitudes of my child. The principal has been a friend to my children. She leads and directs the school with care and attention to the individual needs of the students. She also does not hesitate to take command of a situation when needed. Although there have been a few problems with the high school curriculum, the elementary programs are wonderful. There are so many ways a student can explore, grow, and develop strength of character. The counselor is good. The administrative staff are very good. The art, music, dance, and drama instructors all do great jobs. The technology in the classrooms amazes me! However, if your child has behavior problems, you should be warned that there is very little tolerance for very disruptive/disrespectful behavior. Attending the school is a privilege!
This school is ok, but being in highschool there aren't many good classes. Normal hightschool's have classes like, photography, gym, etc.... Overall this school is ok, but could be alot better:/
I love this school! I started IACS this year and love it! It's the best school I've ever been to! I would deffinitly reccomend this to anyone who is interested in the arts. You really do learn through the arts!
Idaho Arts Charter School allowed my daughter to find and express her creative interests. The staff and teacher really care about the students success.
My son used to attend Sherman and was struggling in reading. The work there was almost too easy. He started IACS in November and is now excelling in reading and doing more challenging work. He has learned so much in just 6 months and he loves school! I would highly recomend this school.
Excellent teachers, strong administrators, huge parents involvement. My children have been learning through their art focused curriculum not only English and math, but also self-esteem, love, care and creativity. This school is still new and getting better every year. There is lots of energy in this school.
Excellent, highly-qualified teachers and administrators. State-of the art curriculum and technology, there are smartboards in every classroom. My children have been very successful at this school.
I am a freshman student here. I believe this school is awesome because its more one on one teacher student so it is much easier to learn. And now matter who you are you always fit in. I used to go to public schools and i was living in misery.
This school is O.K. they are GREAT in some areas like dance, history and english but certain programs like choir and science are lacking. I have attended IACS since it oppened and each year it gets better and better. Right now its average but maybe in a few more school years it will be amazing.
I love this school. It has humble beginnings but overall I am impressed. My children learn well through the arts and I am very pleased with how this school teaches through the arts. I was tempted to home school but my after finding this school, my children did great and there was no need to home school. The teachers are most general personable and show a great love for what they do. I know the care about my children. I would recomment this school to anyone who has children that learn well through the arts.
