Seltice Elementary is such an amazing school. The staff and teachers are so great! My children get so much love and support from their teachers. They are challenged in academics and in morals! They teach independence and perseverance as well as kindness and respect. My children are getting the greatest education in the most unique environment with the most amazing staff and teachers ever! We LOVE Seltice Elementary!!!

We have been so impressed by the wonderful, caring atmosphere at Seltice. The teachers really care about each student, and foster an environment where students want to work hard, cooperate with each other, and learn together. The principal, Barney Brewton, has a program called "caught in the act"... of doing good. Every week, students are rewarded for helping out other students, being involved with school projects, and making their school a better place. Many school programs have student volunteers helping to make it happen. My daughter is in the Starburst gifted program, and has had wonderful learning opportunities at this school. Bullying behavior is not tolerated at all, and the teachers go out of their way to see that kids are being treated fairly. My only complaint is that the kindergarten is not included in this school. I can only hope to find as good a school in Salt Lake City, where we are moving for the next school year.

Both of my sons attended Seltice and came away with a good education plus a good idea on how to study. Seltice has open classrooms so they must learn to contol their actions and learn to study. Good school.

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.
