I have grown up in North Idaho and now my twins are attending school at John Brown and love it. This school creates pride among all students and parents. I hope my children will attend all the grades as this is our extended family.

John Brown Elementary is a wonderful school. The principal, teachers, and staff are caring individuals who work together to provide a positive, disciplined and safe environment for the children. We have had 4 children attend John Brown and each one had a great experience there.

John Brown is a excellent school with well qualified caring teachers and adminisrators. My 4 children have all attended JBE. The academmic program is aimed at assuring that each child is prepared for the next grade level. The program that the school is lacking is a visual arts program. Most of the art/ art histroy is taught by parent volunteers. Music is available to all children, as well as reading and special ed. programs. This is a great school with a fine, caring, and fair administration. My kids still visit several of their teachers.

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.
