The Payette Primary School is a great school in our community to start our little minds growing. They have a excellent staff and great teachers. They offer incentive award programs monthly for the kids and numerious community functions throughout the year. They even offer and IEP program for pre-K students with a staff that is AWESOME!!

Principal McKenzie is so hands on, the kids adore him, and he is very strict (the kids respect him for it) Specific teach to mantion is Mr. Vlcek, he is an incredible teacher and has given my son his first taste in true creative hands on teaching. He is an amazing teacher who we have been blessed to have in our sons life. My 2 sons have attended here, and I wouldnt change it. They care about the kids, strait up, kids first and it shows. Good school, don't pay too close of attention to the low rating!

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.
