As a former student of this school, I can honestly say it is a horrible school. I attended this school all through middle school and part of my junior year of high school. They claim to focus on each child individually, but all that really does is spread out their already thin educational abilities. After going there for one semester, I learned as much as I would have in only a couple weeks at the regular high school. Their education is severely lacking. The money they spend is spent on useless things that do not better the students education. This school does not prepare the students for the real world. They set due dates for whenever the student is done with an assignment, they pretty much hand the student a diploma without them putting out any real effort or having to learn anything. My education was way below standard because of my enrollment there. Also, there is no respect between teachers and students whatsoever. The principal told the entire freshman class about my friends failed credits and how he was "too immature for school.", which is a hugely inappropriate thing to do. Overall, this is a terrible school, hiding behind false statements about helping individual kids.
This school is very creative, the teachers are hardworking, and my two kids who have attended both middle and high school love SCS/HS! Mr. Kallage is the best; a very talented teacher! The projects the school does are very imaginative and seem to fit the 'real world' of work that adults come into later in life. Keep it up SCS!
This school is brilliant. It focuses on the child and their abilities, needs and strengths while still cognizant of State requirements and meeting them. They now have their own high school, custom built and wonderful. Even better, as long as your child completes what they need to within the curriculum, they will be able to take part in a duel (college) enrollment in their final year. Plus State of Idaho will now pay for the costs. The teachers all know their stuff, know your child, and the principal is both aware and has an open-door policy. It doesn't get any better.
I love the students and the families. I love the excited projects we do and how they really make kids think and work together. I love the creativity and rigor that is provided. Mostly, I love that we all laugh together and enjoy one another: faculty, students, and parents.
I love this school, because it allows all students to feel successful, safe, encouraged, and inspired!The teachers are passionate and caring and the potential for quality and meaningful futures for these students went up ten-fold the minute the Charter School doors opened!
My daughters 6th grade teacher suggested this school. I and my daughter are very happy with the school. Her grades have gone from d's and f's to c's and even a's. And she is back loving going to school. The whole faculty is awesome. They go the extra mile for each kid. And the principal is just the best, she is so caring. This is my daughters 1st year there, she's in 7th grade and will continue to go to SCS thru 9th grade. Enrolling my daughter in this school has been a blessing!
