This school is amazing! My kids have learned so much. We moves here from another state where my children were attending one of the best schools in the area. My daughter is learning a more advanced curriculum and understanding them so much faster. They are also the kindest people I have ever met. This is the best school!

Teachers go above and beyond on an individual student basis. The test scores at Adams are among the highest in the state of Idaho. 4 out 5 stars in 2012; the entire student body averages 5 points higher than what the state of Idaho considers "Advanced" in Language, Math and Reading. Nearly every class performs a play, there is a major emphasis on learning music, the Kodaly Method is taught in every grade. Many night activities round out the welcoming atmosphere at Adams: Carnival, Reading Night, Art Night, Science Night, just to name a few.

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.
