Some of the teachers are wonderful and seem interested in the students' learning and reaching goals they set. These teachers appear to be the newer ones. Many of the tenured teachers don't seem interested in helping kids reach individual goals. One (tenured) math teacher even suggested that rather than us worrying about helping our daughter work towards better grades that we tell her that she might not be cut out for better grades and we should really teach her to accept just being below average. The teacher actually said this would be better for our daughter's self-esteem to accept that she wasn't as good as the other kids, rather than be disappointed by trying and failing! I was disappointed that this was the type of teachers this school found qualified to teach the children. The only reason for the two stars instead of one was because there were a couple of teachers who worked with our daughter, set goals with her, and saw many of those goals reached. The "experienced" teachers did little to impress us in that regard.

I am extremely disappointed in this school. Although the principal is great and gets to know the kids the secretaries in the front will not smile or assist you unless you know them personally. They did nothing to assist me in getting appropriate classes for my child even asking them several times throughout the year.

The students are fantastic. The staff and administration really care about the students both in school and out . THey push the students to do their best while building confidence and helping them to reach out beyond the comfort zone.

I love the music program at this school and this district. The emphasis is important to us. The teachers are all good at inspiring the children to learn. I appreciate the after school programs, it really gives my children extra opportunities to explore and learn new things and have fun doing it. The staff is always friendly and helpful when I need to talk to my child or give him something.

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.
